Chicken Pot Pie

I made this recipe just last night and it's wonderful, so naturally, I want to share it! Enjoy!


1 pound(2-3 small) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cubed
1 cup sliced carrots
1 cup frozen green peas
1/2 cup sliced celery
1/3 cup butter
1/3 cup chopped onion
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon celery seed
1 3/4 cups chicken broth
2/3 cup milk
2 (9 inch) unbaked pie crusts


1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C.)

2. In a saucepan, combine chicken, carrots, peas, and celery. Add water to cover and boil for 15 minutes. Remove from heat, drain and set aside.

3. In the saucepan over medium heat, cook onions in butter until soft and translucent. Stir in flour, salt, pepper, and celery seed. Slowly stir in chicken broth and milk. Simmer over medium-low heat until thick. Remove from heat and set aside.

4. Place the chicken mixture in bottom pie crust. Pour hot liquid mixture over. Cover with top crust, seal edges, and cut away excess dough. Make several small slits in the top to allow steam to escape.

5. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes, or until pastry is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Cool for 10 minutes before serving.

Ohio State LO

On January 1, 2010 the Ohio State Buckeyes played the Oregon Ducks in the 96th Rose Bowl. It was the first time that the Buckeyes had been to the Rose Bowl since 1997. The game was pretty close but the Buckeyes pulled it together and won 26-17. Roast duck anyone? O-H-I-O

By the way, the kit I used was made by yours truly =) If you would like to download it you can get it here.
