Chicken Pot Pie Weather

Chicken Pot Pie is pretty great anytime but especially when it's raining and you have left over chicken.

If you don't have left over chicken you can just pick up a rotisserie chicken at the grocery store. 

You will need cooked chicken about 2 cups full.
1 can of mixed vegetable ...I like veg-all. Or you can of course chop some fresh veggies. 
I stick of butter
1/4 cup flour
1 can of chicken broth
1 cup of heavy whipping cream
2 pie crust (pillsbury)
A pinch of white wine

Melt your butter

Shred your chicken

Drain your veggies

Sauté The veggies in the butter about 5 min on medium heat

While the veggies cook go ahead and get your crust and pan ready

 Use one to line the bottom

Add the chicken to the veggies 

Season more if needed

Sprinkle the flour in and stir it all in to thicken

Add chicken broth

Then add the good stuff!! This is what makes the pot pie so good!


A little white wine ( or a lot) 

Season a little more salt and pepper

If you fancy a few more veggies...I like to add peas at the end.

Poor into your crust 

Cover with the second crust

Tuck her in around the edges

Cut a few slits 

She's ready to bake

350 for an hour to an hour an 15 minutes 

It's ready and it's perfect!'


Serve hot and it is just as good or maybe even a little better heated up the next night!!
