I remember, when I was growing up, my mom used to buy those little frozen single serve chicken pot pies for next to nothing. As kids we loved them, for sure. But these days, I’m afraid that wouldn’t cut it with my family. My homemade chicken pot pie is one of their favorite meals, therefore, when I make it, I make lots! So many people have asked me about it that I figured I’d go ahead and do a little tutorial and give you my chicken pot pie recipe! It’s honestly so incredibly easy!
How to Make Homemade Chicken Pot Pie
If you have ever made breakfast gravy, then you already know the basis of making pot pie filling. In the video, I go through the steps and that is probably the best way to learn it. I don’t really use specific measurements when I make it. However, I do use specific ingredients. I’ll list them and the steps in the chicken pot pie recipe below.
Chicken Pot Pie Recipe
Homemade Chicken Pot PieCourse: MainDifficulty: Easy
Cooking oil, (Olive Oil, Canola, Vegetable Oil)
Flour (for thickening)
Cooked Chicken or other meat (cubed or shredded)
Mixed vegetables – your choice
- Begin by heating oil in the bottom of a large skillet
- Add enough flour to make a thick paste (Stir well with a whisk)
- Add milk to thin and extend while stirring constantly
- Add enough broth to give it some additional flavor
- Add salt and pepper to taste
- When your filling is thick enough to not be runny then you can pour it into a large bowl and add your chicken and vegetables.
- Pour into your pie shell, then cover with the upper pie crust and pinch the edges together.
- Bake at 400 for 20-25 min or until there is no ‘wet look’ on top.
- This is a recipe that you can make LOTS of at a time and freeze up a bunch for later!
In the video, I also go into the making of my homemade pie crusts. Of course, you can use pre-made crusts, but they are more expensive and not nearly as good. Mine are very quick and simple to make and SO VERY GOOD! You can go and check out my recipe for Flaky Homemade Pie Crusts.
