Classic Chicken Pot Pie

This recipe yield 2 chicken pot pies. I usually cook one pie for dinner and freeze the second. It takes a while to prepare the filling and sauce so it's worth preparing two at a time - plus it tastes just as good after being frozen!

  • Yield: 12 servings ( Serving Size: 1/6 of pie )


  • 2 pound(s) boneless chicken breasts, cubed
  • 1 bag(s) frozen, mixed vegetables
  • 3 medium-sized potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1/3 cup(s) butter
  • 2/3 cup(s) yellow onion chopped
  • 2/3 cup(s) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) celery seed
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) poultry seasoning
  • 3 1/2 cup(s) chicken broth
  • 1 1/3 cup(s) milk
  • 2 package(s) deep-dish pie crusts (I buy the frozen kind)


1) Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

2) In a pot, combine chicken, vegetables, and potatoes. Add water to cover and boil for 12-15 minutes. Remove from heat, drain, and set aside.

3) In a large saucepan, cook onions in butter until soft and translucent. Stir in flour, salt, pepper, and celery seed to form a paste. Add chicken broth and milk. Stir and bring to boil for one minute (or until sauce thickens). Remove from heat and set aside.

4) Prep the pie crusts according to directions on wrapper (EX: may need to thaw for a few minutes).

5) Combine chicken mixture with sauce and pour into pie crusts. Cover with top crusts, seal edges, and cut away excess. Make 2-3 small slits in the top to allow steam to escape.

6) If freezing, cool to room temperature and wrap in wax paper and foil. Can be stored freezer up to 3 months.

7) If eating now, bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until pie is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Cool for 10 minutes before serving.
