Chicken Pot Pie

As a food lover and avid home cook, I am always on the lookout for recipes that combine comfort and flavor. One dish that never fails to bring a smile to my face is the classic Chicken Pot Pie. Its origins can be traced back to medieval times when pies were often used as a way to preserve and cook meat. Over the years, this humble dish has evolved and become a beloved comfort food staple in many households.


  • 2 cups cooked chicken, diced
  • 1 cup frozen mixed vegetables
  • 1/2 cup diced potatoes
  • 1/2 cup diced carrots
  • 1/4 cup diced onions
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 package frozen puff pastry, thawed


Step 1: Prepare the Filling

In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic, and sauté until translucent and fragrant. Add the diced potatoes and carrots, cooking until they start to soften. Stir in the flour, thyme, and parsley, coating the vegetables evenly.

Step 2: Create the Gravy

Slowly pour in the chicken broth and milk, stirring constantly until the mixture thickens and becomes creamy. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add the cooked chicken and frozen mixed vegetables, stirring until everything is well combined. Remove from heat and set aside.

Step 3: Assemble the Pie

Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Roll out the puff pastry on a lightly floured surface and cut it into a shape that fits your pie dish. Make sure to leave some excess pastry hanging over the sides to form the crust. Pour the filling into the pie dish and place the puff pastry on top, sealing the edges by crimping them with a fork. Cut a few slits on the top to allow steam to escape.

Step 4: Bake and Serve

Place the pie dish on a baking sheet to catch any drips. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling. Allow the pot pie to cool for a few minutes before serving.

This Chicken Pot Pie is a comforting and hearty meal that is perfect for any occasion. The flaky puff pastry crust, creamy filling, and savory flavors make it an all-time favorite. Serve it with a side of fresh greens or a simple salad for a complete meal.

Tips and Variations:

  • If you’re short on time, you can use store-bought rotisserie chicken instead of cooking the chicken yourself.
  • Feel free to add your favorite herbs and spices to the filling for extra flavor.
  • For a vegetarian version, replace the chicken with tofu or extra vegetables.
  • Experiment with different vegetables like mushrooms, peas, or corn to suit your taste.
