Angela's Chicken Pot PieSubmitted by: CDMOMTO3
1 box Pilsbury rolled crusts, or homemade, which ever you prefer.
1 package frozen mixed veggies, thawed and rinsed
7 TBSP butter
1/3 C flour
1/2 large onion finely chopped
1/2 tsp table salt
pepper to taste
1 3/4C chicken stock
2/3C 1/2 & 1/2 or cream
2 1/2 - 3 C cubed cooked chicken or turkey
** I boil the chicken with veggies and a bay leaf and make my own chicken stock but canned works just as well. I use more butter b/c it's richer. You can use margarine ( according to my gma ) but I never do. butter is better.
I shred the chicken rather than cubing it for texture that my family prefers. Also, I take one egg and a couple tbsp water, mix it up to make an egg wash, and brush it over the top of the pie and sprinkle it with a little salt b/c it gives the crust a shiny look and it's prettier. I have also been known to take a seasonal cookie cutter and cut a shape in the top rather than plain 'ol slits for venting it.
