This is a cold, snowy Saturday and it was just screaming something hot & yummy to eat. Chicken Pot Pie sounded great, but I wasn't sure I had the ingredients in the house, and I didn't want to go get anything. So, time to start digging - found chicken breasts, vegs, etc., but that would mean I'd have to make my own crust! That sounded a bit overwhelming, but I thought "I can do this"!
Simple pot pie ingredients:
3 large chicken breasts
1 small bag of frozen mixed vegs
1 can Healthy Request cream of chicken soup
1 stick of butter or margarine
1 stalk of celery (I didn't have this!)
1 tsp salt
3/4 cup of Crisco
2 cups of all purpose flour
4-8 T ice cold water
Use a pastry blender to cut crisco into flour until it is a "mealy" consistency.
While the crust chills, and the chicken is boiling, chop onion & celery. When chicken is done, drain & put aside to cool. Use the same pot to mix the filling. Put butter or margarine in the pot, when melted, add onions & celery. Then add cream of chicken soup. When all is blended and heated through, add chopped chicken breasts.
Bake @ 375 degrees for 30-45 minutes.
