This spin on a classic Chicken Pot Pie is delicious, easy, has way fewer carbs than traditional versions, and best of all it is all made in one pan. It’s got a cozy flavor that tastes like a warm home feels!
Start off making this dish by slicing up your mirepoix; Mirepoix is French for what is basically the holy trinity of soup bases! That’s carrots, onions, and celery. Trader Joes actually sells it already chopped so if you really want to go the easy route, head there and pick up a tub of it. It’s about $3.00 I believe.
Add in some salt, pepper and fresh herbs- thyme and sage- fresh makes the difference here and really infuses that delicious, cozy pot pie flavor! Give it a good stir, and let the aromatics bloom for a few minutes before moving onto the next step of adding butter and frozen peas.
Mix the butter (butter makes everything better!) into the mirepoix and mix it well. Then, add cubed chicken. I used a leftover chicken breast but rotisserie chicken would work great, too.
Our next step will be to add flour which will give the pot pie the thick consistency we all know and love. After that, you’ll add chicken stock, and heavy whipping cream. What?! I never said it was TOTALLY healthy! If you’re gonna have chicken pot pie it has to taste good! 🙂 After adding the stock and the cream, and let it simmer until thick. Once thick, turn off the heat and remove from hot stove.
Next step is adding the pie crust; I use store bought but you can certainly make your own. Taste of Lizzy T has a great recipe for pie crust that I love.
I added my pie crust in the shape of a lattice (which I’ve never done but it was surprisingly not that hard! Just cut it into strips and layer one over the other, who knew?!) but you could also just add a big rustic piece of pie crust on top- just make sure you poke with a fork for ventilation. Another idea is to cut out shapes and layer them over the pot pie. Fall leaves or Christmas shapes would be fun, as would hearts for Valentine’s Day.
Bake your easy one pan chicken pot pie for 20-30 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and you are good to go! Such an easy meal to make, and it makes the whole family just so happy!
