Chicken Pot Pie


Ingredients:
Filling:

2-3 chicken breasts (cubed)
2 TBS butter
1 small onion (chopped)
2-3 cloves of garlic (minced)
2 carrots (chopped)
2 celery sticks (chopped)
3 small red potatoes (boiled and chopped)
1/2 cup corn
1/2 cup frozen peas
1 can cream of mushroom
1 can cream of chicken
3/4 cup of milk
salt and pepper

Directions:
Boil the chicken for 20 minutes. Until done and no longer pink. Boil potatoes for 5-7 minutes. Take out and chop. Chop the carrots and celery. In a large pan put in a 2 TBS of butter. Saute carrots and celery until carrots are fork tender. Then add the onions and garlic in. Saute for 2 minutes. After that is all done. Add in the potatoes, corn, peas, cream of mushroom, cream of chicken and milk. Salt and pepper everything to taste.

Pie Crust

Ingredient:

One-Crust Pie (9-inch)
1 cup all purpose or unbleached flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon shortening
3-4 tablespoons cold water

Two-Crust Pie (9inch)
2 cups all-purpose or unbleached flour
1 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons shortening
5 to 6 tablespoons cold water

Directions:
Mix flour and salt in medium bowl. Cut in shortening, using pastry blender or crisscrossing 2 knives, until particles are size of small peas. Sprinkle with cold water, 1 tablespoon at a time, tossing with fork until all flour is moistened and pastry almost leaves side of bowl (1 to 2 teaspoons more water can be added if necessary).
Gather pastry into a ball. Shape into flattened round on lightly floured surface.

Spray a 9x13 inch baking dish. Add your filling and then top with the crust. Put a couple knife slits in the top and Bake at 425 for 35 minutes or until golden brown. You can make 9 inch pie pans if you would like.

The Results:
This was Awesome. I made up the filling for the pot pie and I got the pie crust recipe for my Betty Crocker cookbook. This meal was yummy. With the leftover pie dough I did what my mom always did for us. I rolled it out and cut it up in strips and put cinnamon and sugar on it and put it in the oven for about 10 minutes. It was my sons dessert. I made a glaze to go with it out of powdered sugar and milk. So easy and he loved it. I loved this chicken pot pie and will probably be making it again soon. So easy and good.
