You read the title right. I can't tell you how many people want to make-out with this chicken pot pie. Warning: Do not eat this while dating! It's not very attractive to have bits of chicken and potato plastered on your face even if you served it over candle light and fine linens. But it's impossible to eat this pie while mainting some semblance that you're a mature adult! My friend Lisa (in good ol' Utah, woot woot!) gave this recipe to me years ago and every time I make one for a neighbor they become my new bff. That is, until I give them the recipe! Hmmm, maybe I should hold out longer and get some freebies or something before I hand over this reputation-slandering-oh-so-good recipe? Get ready to wow your friends and family, that is, if you're willing to share!
Lisa's Make-Out Chicken Pot Pie-
-4 chicken breasts -1 Cup chopped onion -1 Cup chopped celery
-1 Cup chopped carrots -1/3 Cup butter -1 Cup chopped poptatoes
-1/4 Cup flour -2 Cups chicken broth -1 Cup half & half
-1 tsp salt -1/4 tsp pepper -store bought pie crust or homemade
-frozen peas (optional)
UPDATE- Lisa told me she browns the bottom crust in oven for 2 min @ 400 degrees before adding the filling. Good idea! A lower fat version is to just have a top crust and no bottom crust. But who's kidding? I don't do low fat anything, just ask my cholesterol!
Boil chicken with water and chicken boullion (or use half chicken broth, half water) until chicken is done. In a large Saute pan, saute onions, celery, carrots and potatoes in butter for 10 min. Add flour and cook for one minute. Combine broth and half and half. Stir into vegetables and cook over medium heat until thick and bubbly. Add chicken and stir well. In a 2 quart dish or pie plate place bottom crust and pour the filling on top. Add the top crust and brush crust with half & half. Cook at 400 degrees for thirty minutes or until golden brown.
*hand over the pie to your favoritest people with one hand and hold a can of Mace in a defensive position in the other hand. There's no telling what will happen when you give them this chicken pot goodness!
