Savoring Comfort: Homemade Chicken Pot Pie Recipe for Cozy Evenings

Preparation Time: Approximately 30 minutes

Cooking Time: Approximately 45-50 minutes

Total Time: Approximately 1 hour 15 minutes


For the Crust:

  • 2.5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup cold unsalted butter (cut into small cubes)
  • 6-8 tablespoons ice water

For the Filling:

  • 2 chicken breasts (cooked and shredded)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 onion (chopped)
  • 2 carrots (chopped)
  • 2 stalks celery (chopped)
  • 1/2 cup peas (frozen or canned)
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1.5 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup milk
  • Salt, pepper, thyme (optional) – to taste


  1. Preparing the Crust: In a bowl, combine the flour and salt. Add the cold, cubed butter and use your hands to work the mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. Add ice water one tablespoon at a time, and mix until the dough comes together. Form the dough into a disk, wrap it in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  2. Preparing the Filling: Cook the chicken breasts, shred them, and set aside. In a pot, melt the butter and sauté the chopped onion, carrots, and celery until they soften.
  3. Add the flour and cook for a minute, then gradually stir in the chicken broth and milk. Keep stirring until the sauce thickens.
  4. Add the shredded chicken and frozen peas to the sauce. Season with salt, pepper, and thyme (if using). Mix well and remove from heat.
  5. Assembling the Pot Pie: Preheat your oven to 190°C (375°F). Roll out one portion of the crust on a floured surface to fit the bottom of your pie dish.
  6. Transfer the chicken filling into the pie dish, spreading it evenly.
  7. Roll out the second portion of the crust and place it over the filling. Trim any excess dough and crimp the edges to seal.
  8. Use a knife to create slits on the top crust to allow steam to escape.
  9. Bake in the preheated oven for about 45-50 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.
  10. Remove from the oven and let it cool slightly before slicing and serving.

Chicken Pot Pie is a delicious comfort food that’s perfect for cozy evenings. Enjoy your homemade creation!
