Now that summer is over it is time to indulge in hearty and warming dishes such as chicken pie. This chicken pie requires you to use store-bought pie dough, but you are free to make your own dough for this recipe. 

Ingredients

  • box refrigerated pie crust, left at room temperature
  • 1/4  Cup  butter
  • small onion, chopped
  • garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1/3  Cup  flour
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 1 1/2  Cup  chicken stock
  • 1/2  Cup  heavy cream
  • 3  Cups  rotisserie chicken, cooked, shredded
  • 1/21  Cup  frozen mixed vegetables, thawed

Directions

Pre heat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Make pie crust as packaged directs using a 10-inch pie pan.

In a sauce pan, melt the butter over medium heat and add in the onions and garlic, cook for 3 minutes. Stir occasionally until the onions are translucent and tender. Stir in the flour and mix until it has dissolved. Add salt and pepper to taste. Stir in the stock and the milk, stirring until the mixture has thickened. Add in the chicken and frozen vegetables.

Remove mixture from heat and spoon it in the prepared pie crust. Top the mixture with the second crust, seal the edges, and cut a slit at the top.

Bake in the oven for 35 minutes or until the crust is golden brown on top.

 

Chicken Shopping Tip

Buy whole chickens and ask the butcher to quarter them for you. You will save an average of $5 per pound, or more.

Chicken Cooking Tip

Allow meat to rest for at least ten minutes before slicing into it; otherwise, the juices will leak out.
