Mostly Made-From-Scratch Chicken Pot Pie

It’s been a cold last few weeks and through all the wind and nippy nights, the idea of a warm comfort meal is exactly what we need. Chicken pot pie is the definition of comfort! It’s warm and bubbly. There’s a perfect balance between veggies and creamy filling. Now of course you can make your dough from scratch. In fact, I recommend it! However, life is busy so this isn’t always realistic. So this recipe will show you how to make the filling with pre-made dough. Let’s dive in!

Heat butter in a large pot over medium heat. Then add onions, celery, thyme, garlic, and carrots. Cook and stir for 7 minutes. Ingredients should be soft. By this point, your home will smell amazingly homey!

Place filling into your pie crust. This will make 2 small pies or one large pie. These are perfect for making ahead of time and freezing for later.

Now, you can cut your crust up and come up with designs like this, or simply place the top over the filling. If you place the crust on top, make sure you pierce the top with a fork to let out the steam. Either way spread the remainder of the egg wash on top before placing it in a 400° oven for 30-35 minutes.
