How to Make the Best Chicken Pot Pie
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 425 degrees F or 220 degrees C.
Step 2: Combine the chicken, carrots, peas, and celery in a saucepan. Pour in some water and cover the pan.
Step 3: Boil the chicken mixture for about 15 minutes and then remove from the heat and drain. Set aside.
Step 4: Cook the onions in butter in the saucepan over medium heat until soft and transparent.
Step 5: Then, stir in the flour, salt, pepper, and celery seed.
Step 6: Gradually pour in the chicken broth and milk and continue to simmer over medium-low heat until the mixture is thickened. Once thick, remove the pan from the heat and set aside.
Step 7: Transfer the chicken mixture in the bottom pie crust, then, carefully pour in the hot liquid mixture on top.
Step 8: Cover the hot liquid with another pie crust and seal the edges. Cut any excess dough if necessary. And slice some small slits in the top for a steam escape.
Step 9: Place inside the preheated oven and bake for about 30 to 35 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown and the filling is bubbly.
Step 10: Once done, remove from the oven and let the pie cool for at least 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
