Homemade Chicken Pot Pie

Absolutely! Making a homemade chicken pot pie is a comforting and delicious endeavor. Here’s a classic recipe:


For the filling:

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 2 celery stalks, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup milk or heavy cream
  • 2 cups cooked chicken, diced or shredded
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the crust:

  • 2 store-bought pie crusts or homemade pie crusts


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. In a large skillet or pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the diced onion, carrots, celery, and minced garlic. Cook until the vegetables are tender, usually for about 5-7 minutes.
  3. Sprinkle the flour over the cooked vegetables and stir well to coat. Cook for an additional 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
  4. Gradually pour in the chicken broth and milk or cream, stirring constantly to avoid lumps. Cook until the mixture thickens, usually for about 5-7 minutes.
  5. Add the cooked chicken, frozen peas, dried thyme, salt, and pepper to the mixture. Stir everything together and let it simmer for a few more minutes until the peas are warmed through. Remove from heat.
  6. Roll out one of the pie crusts and place it in the bottom of a 9-inch pie dish. Pour the chicken and vegetable filling into the pie crust.
  7. Roll out the second pie crust and place it over the top of the filling. Trim any excess dough and crimp the edges to seal the pie. Cut a few slits in the top crust to allow steam to escape.
  8. Optional: Brush the top crust with a beaten egg for a golden finish.
  9. Place the pie on a baking sheet (to catch any potential drips) and bake in the preheated oven for 45-55 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling.
  10. Let the chicken pot pie cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving.

Enjoy the heartwarming goodness of homemade chicken pot pie! Feel free to customize by adding other vegetables or herbs to suit your taste preferences.
