Ingredients

  • 1 small onion diced
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 4 Tbsp butter
  • 1/3 cup unbleached flour
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cup peas I use frozen, organic
  • 1 cup sliced carrots
  • About a pound of chicken chicken breast or tenders
  • 3-4 sprigs of fresh thyme or 1 tsp dried
  • 1 tsp salt + more if needed for taste
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 pie crust I make homemade or you can buy if you can find good quality

Instructions

  • Make 2 pie crusts and refrigerate. Get my pie crust recipe below.
  • Fill a stockpot up halfway with water and put in chicken, peas, and sliced carrots. Bring to a boil and boil about 15 minutes or until chicken is done and carrots are tender. Drain and set aside.
  • In a medium saucepan add butter, onions, and celery (season with salt and pepper and cook on medium-low for just a few minutes until veggies start to appear translucent.
  • Whisk in flour, milk, and broth.
  • Stir in salt, pepper, and thyme.
  • Bring to a simmer and cook about 10-15 minutes or until it's thick and bubbly.
  • Cut chicken in chunks, and add chicken, peas, and carrots to the creamy mixture.
  • Taste and season and take off the heat and set aside.

How to Assemble

  • Set out jumbo muffin pan. Get jumbo muffin pan here
  • Preheat over to 400
  • Remove the pie crust from the fridge. Flour your working surface and roll dough out with a rolling pin to about a 1/4 inch thick.
  • Using a large rim glass or large circular dough cutter, cut out circles just a bit larger than your muffin pan circles.
  • Place a cut out dough circle in the bottom of the muffin pan, press if needed to cover up the sides.
  • Fill generously with pot pie filling
  • Place another circle on top and tuck in edges.
  • Continue to do this until you use all the dough and filling ( this made 9 for me)
  • With a fork or knife poke some holes in the top.
  • Bake about 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. (if using pre-made crusts they may brown quicker)
  • Let cool slightly and serve.
