How to make Mom’s Chicken Pot Pie
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 425 degrees F or 220 degrees C.
Step 2: In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Once the butter has melted, add the onion, flour, salt, and pepper to the skillet. Stir and cook for about 5 minutes until the onion is translucent.
Step 3: Take the skillet out of the heat. Into the skillet, pour in the chicken broth and milk. Bring the mixture to a boil and cook for about a minute until the mixture has slightly thickened.
Step 4: Again, remove the skillet from the heat before stirring in the chicken, peas and carrots, and potatoes into the broth mixture.
Step 5: Into the bottom of a deep-dish pie pan, press one pie pastry. Pour the broth mixture over and top with the rest of the pastry. Seal by pressing the edges together, then cut a few slits on top. On a baking sheet, transfer the pie plate.
Step 6: Place inside the preheated oven and bake for about 30 minutes until the crust is golden brown.
Step 7: Remove from the oven and allow the pie to cool and the filling thickens for about 15 to 20 minutes at room temperature. Slice and serve.
