Chicken Pot Pie!

Chicken pot pie is a very hearty meal, but very easy to make; time consuming yes, but simple at best. For the past 3 months Kailee has been asking and asking 'Mom, can you please make pot pie tonight?' I never felt like making such a HUGE meal. Tonight, I decided to surprise her with pot pie. Oh Boy! Did she ever freak out! I used a recipe that my grandmother used to make and passed down to me many years ago (like 7 or 8 years ago wow been a while). In honor of my grandmother please do enjoy this recipe and share with your family! This recipe is one to keep in the binder for a rainy day (which in Ohio today was cold, rainy and felt like fall). 

You Will Need:

6 tbsp Organic Butter, unsalted
6 tbsp Organic All-Purpose Flour (or whole wheat)
1 Cups Organic Onion, minced
2 Cups Organic Chicken Broth
1 Cups Organic Half-n-Half {or milk}
2 Cups Organic Potatoes, diced 
1 Cups Organic Frozen Peas & Carrots
2 Cups Organic Chicken, cooked
Organic Chili Powder, Garlic Powder, Parsley
Salt & Pepper
Pie Crust

Toss butter, and onions in a stock pot; cook 6-7 minutes or until translucent 

Add flour, stir to combine and cook another minute to get the 'flour' flavor out

Heat chicken broth in microwave for 5 minutes, add to onions, then add half -n- half, whisk any chunks out; bring to a boil, reduce heat to simmer be sure to stir this often, you do not want chunks or sticking

Add peas, carrots, chicken and potatoes (I had blanched potatoes weeks ago, and froze them, I used those here) stir and cook another 10 minutes on low heat

Roll pie crust out, poke holes in bottom to vent

Sorry forgot to picture it filled, but fill and top with crust... make as fancy as you can, I cannot so this is just as good as its' gonna get for me. Poke holes on top to vent as well. With oven heated to 350 degrees, cook 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and cool 30 minutes (if you cut right away it will be a soupy mess! Trust me LET IT COOL as much as this part sucks, you have to do it)

TaDa!! Absolutely amazing, simple, delicious, and honestly will make people come back for more; impress away my friends!
