Ingredients
  

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 medium onion diced
  • 2 medium carrots (1 cup), chopped
  • 2 ribs celery (1 cup) chopped
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 1/4 cups chicken stock
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 4 cups chicken shredded, cooked
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 teaspoon parsley
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup peas frozen
  • 2 pie crusts (homemade or store bought)
  • 1 egg beaten with 1 tablespoon water (to form an egg wash)

Instructions
 

  • In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add the onions, carrots, and celery and cook until soft.
  • Once the vegetables are softened, add the flour and stir to coat the vegetables. Cook for 1-2 minutes.
  • Slowly pour chicken stock and milk into the skillet. Add the cooked chicken and seasonings and bring to a simmer.
  • Stir in the frozen peas and bring to a simmer again. Continue to simmer for 10 minutes, until the pot pie filling is thick. Turn off the heat and allow it to cool. Adjust seasoning as needed.
  • Preheat oven to 400F.
  • Meanwhile, roll one pie crust out into a circle slightly larger than your pie dish (the circle should be about 12 inches in diameter for a 9 inch pie crust). Place the crust into the pie dish.
  • Add the pot pie filling into the pie crust.
  • Roll out the other pie crust into a 10 inch circle and place it over top of the filling. Tuck the excess dough behind the bottom pie crust and then press the edges to form a good seal. [Note: If the pie crust overhangs too much, trim it with clean kitchen sheers.] Cut some slits into the top of the pastry to vent it and brush with the egg wash.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes or until the pie turns a nice golden colour.
