Delicious Homestyle Recipe from Lehman’s

There’s something undeniably comforting about a homemade chicken pot pie. Its flaky crust, rich filling, and hearty flavors have a way of bringing people together, and I’m excited to share a recipe that does just that. This recipe is from our friends at Lehman’s, known for their commitment to simple, traditional living.

Ingredients for Chicken Pot Pie

  • Rotisserie chicken: 2 cups (shredded)
  • Butter: 1 cup
  • Onion (chopped): 1/3 cup
  • All-purpose flour: 1/3 cup
  • Salt: 1/2 tsp
  • Pepper: 1/4 tsp
  • Chicken Broth: 1 3/4 cups (from a 32 oz carton)
  • Frozen mixed vegetables (thawed): 1/2 cup
  • Heavy whipping cream: 1/2 cup
  • Pie crusts: 2 (store-bought or bakery-fresh)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat and Prepare: Begin by preheating your oven to 425°F (220°C).
  2. Melt and Flavor: In a saucepan, melt the butter. Add minced garlic for extra flavor.
  3. Vegetables and Flour: Introduce the thawed mixed vegetables to the pan, stirring until soft. Gradually add the flour, allowing it to coat the vegetables evenly.
  4. Broth and Cream: Pour in the chicken broth, followed by the heavy whipping cream. Stir to combine and create a rich, creamy filling.
  5. Add Chicken: Mix in the shredded chicken, ensuring it’s fully integrated with the other ingredients. Keep the heat at medium.
  6. Pie Assembly: Spray a cast iron skillet with seasoning spray. Lay the first pie crust in the skillet, add the filling, and then place the second crust on top. Seal the edges with a fork.
  7. Bake: Place the skillet in the oven for 30-35 minutes. Watch for the crust to turn golden brown – a sign your pot pie is ready.
  8. Serve and Enjoy: Remember to use a silicone handle holder when removing the skillet from the oven. Let it cool slightly before serving.
