EASY Chicken Potpie

Ok, so I’m not an accomplished chef.  My hubby, on the other hand, is great!

Here is one recipe that is a winner in taste, and also, is found in the easy category.  I like that I don’t dirty many dishes while preparing it either.

If I can make it, so can you! 🙂 So let’s get started.  Easy Chicken Pot Pie.

 

First, preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  In a 4qt. casserole dish, melt a stick of butter. (I use my Pampered Chef RockCrock Dish) When the butter is nearly all melted, put a 1/2 cup flour in it; whisk unto smooth.  Cook that mixture over medium heat until it is a light golden brown, about 5-6 minutes.  Whisk it occasionally so it doesn’t burn.Add 3 cups of chicken stock; whisk till smooth. Add 2 cloves of pressed garlic, 1 tsp of salt and 1/2 tsp of pepper.  Simmer it all 6-8 minutes, till the sauce is thickened. Shut off the heat and add 1 cup of almond milk* and 3 cups of cooked diced chicken. (I use leftover rotisserie chicken)

Add 1 medium, sliced onion, 2 cups of frozen veggie mixture (I use mostly peas and add a little pieces of julienned carrots).  Mix it all well.
For the topping, I mix 1 cup of flour, 1/2 cup of oil, 1teaspoon of baking powder, 1 teaspoon of salt, and 1 cup of almond milk.  I mix it until it’s smooth; it will start to thicken some.  I carefully and evenly pour it over the pot pie.

Bake uncovered, 30-35 minutes, or till golden brown. Let stand, uncovered, for 10 minutes, then serve.
