What's for Dinner Week!!! Daddy's Chicken Pot Pie!

I had the day from hell yesterday. Three hour glucose test for diabetes and it kicked my butt! Spent the rest of the day in bed! Onto happier things like...Chicken Pot Pie!!!

Chicken pot pie is one of the easiest things in the world. You can get a pre made pie crust but I make my own and it's so easy and tastes so good!!!!

Make the crust first if you're going to do it home made.

1 1/2 cups sifted flour
1 1/2 Teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup mazola corn oil
2 Tablespoons cold milk (2% or higher)

Sift dry ingredients into a pie pan. Combine corn oil and milk in a measuring cup and whip with a fork until creamy.
Immediately pour over flour mixture. Mix with fork until flour is completely dampened. Press evenly and firmly with fingers to line bottom of pan and sides. Partly cover rim, making sure dough is to uniform thickness throughout. Flute edges.

Make second batch in separate bowl for top. Make into a flat piece for the top. Put aside until you pour in mixture below.

Now for the filling!

1 package of chicken breasts
2 celery stalks
2 big carrots
1/2 yellow onion
1/2 cup chicken broth.

Cube chicken breasts. Coat with flour. Saute in olive oil until browned. Remove chicken from pan and put aside.
Dice celery, carrots and onion. Saute in same pan until onion is clear. Add salt and pepper. Reduce heat. Add half a cup of chicken broth and cover. Cook until carrots are soft. Add chicken back in and stir. Turns into coated gravy. Fill pie crust. Then put top crust on. Remember you can make mini pot pies if you like by splitting up the dough!

Bake at 400 degrees until crust is golden brown!

This looks so delicious! Reminds me of Hudson's, then Marshall Field's and now Macy's Chicken Pot Pie that we use to eat as kids when shopping with my mom. I will have to try this!

Angie said...

This sounds sooooo good, I can't wait to try it!!

Lauren said...

I am sorry you were not feeling well yesterday. This chicken pot pie recipe sounds delicious. I am going to try it this week.

Dr came home late last night-starved(what's new??) He loves frozen Marie Callender's frozen pot pie. The large sized one. Have to say-in a crunch not too bad.

SLS said...

I am not looking forward to the glucose test. I hope the results from your test are good!
That recipe sounds so good! I will be trying this one! Thanks for sharing and I hope you are feeling better!

I love a double crust chicken pot pie - a lot of the recipes just have you putting the crust on the top - this looks great.

I hate to hear you had such a bad day. Why in the world are you taking a glucose test so early in your pregnancy? I had to do the 4 hour test with The May and it was horrible. Chicken pot pit is my favorite meal. I can't wait to try your recipe. I hope today is better for you.

Jen said...

Oh no the test sounds awful. Mine is in a few weeks and now I'm not looking forward to it at all!

Pink Flamingo said...

I hope you are feeling better from yesterday...3 hour glucose test does not sound fun at all...UGGH!

Thanks so much for sharing the recipe...sounds delish.

Mmmmm-the chicken pot pie looks so yummy! I wish my husband would eat it...he isn't a "foods mixed together" sort of guy. It makes our dinners sometimes boring. Every once in a while he'll get crazy and try something new...

Umm! Such a comfort food! I make a homemade CPP once a year, I'll try your receipe next! Hope you are feeling OK...why the diabetes test?....did I miss something? Knom it is common, but I pray you don't have it!

Mags said...

I can't wait to try this too!!! Thanks for sharing.

You poor thing. That three hour test is a killer. I had GD with my first pregnancy, flunked the one hour with this one, and flat out refused to take the three hour. I'd rather test myself and go on "the diet" than go through that three hour test ever again. Hope you passed!

Lori said...

Ooh that looks so yummy!! I haven't made that in awhile, I will have to add that to my list! :)
Sorry about the tough day.

Monogramchick said...

That looks so yummy! I am totally craving some comfort food since we are at a chilly 60 degrees here in Iowa!

YUM...looks so good.

I finally did my wedding post on my dress and flowers that you tagged me on ages ago. Sorry it took so long!

Eloise said...

Boy, does that look good! Thanks for the recipe.

Karen said...

Looks so yummy! I love chicken pot pie...I'll have to add this to our menu for next week! Hope you've had a great weekend.
