Chicken Pot Pie Recipe Steps

Filling Steps

  1. Cook the chicken in a little salted water. Once the chicken is cooked, place it in a food processor to shred it (reserve the chicken broth for another step).
  2. Cook the peas and once they are ready, set them aside to dry.
  3. Cut the carrot into small cubes and cook it. Once it is ready, set it aside to dry.
  4. Finely chop the garlic, onion, and celery.
  5. Dissolve the cornstarch in the milk. (If we don’t want to use milk, we can substitute it for the chicken broth that we reserved from cooking the chicken.)
  6. In a frying pan, melt the margarine and sauté the chopped garlic, onion, and celery. When it is sautéed, add the cooked peas, cooked carrot, and shredded chicken. Keep stirring to prevent it from sticking, and then add the cream and cornstarch dissolved in milk. This will make the mixture creamy.

Pie Crust Steps

  1. Melt the margarine.
  2. Add all the ingredients to the flour and then make the dough. Form a ball with it and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  3. Take the dough out of the refrigerator, divide it in two, and roll out both pieces of dough. It’s easier to do this using a rolling pin.

Chicken Pot Pie Preparation Steps

Grease the mold with butter and place one of the rolled-out doughs for the bottom part. Place the creamy chicken mixture on top and cover it with the other rolled-out dough. Make some holes in the top with a fork, this will help the steam escape. A tip to make your pie look shiny and more appetizing is to beat an egg in a dish and brush it over the pie with a kitchen brush.

Finally, bake in the oven at 170 degrees Fahrenheit for 45 minutes.
