Arkie Mama: Mouthwatering Mondays

I was craving chicken pot pie Saturday afternoon, and stumbled across this recipe from Pillsbury. It was really simple and really yummy. I’ll definitely be making this one again, especially on cold nights!

INGREDIENTS

Crust
1 box Pillsbury® refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box
Filling
1/3 cup butter or margarine
1/3 cup chopped onion
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 3/4 cups Progresso® chicken broth (from 32-oz carton)
1/2 cup milk
2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken or turkey
2 cups Green Giant® Valley Fresh Steamers™ frozen mixed vegetables, thawed NOTE: I got a bag of frozen peas and carrots. I don’t like the other stuff in my pot pies!

DIRECTIONS
Heat oven to 425°F. Make pie crusts as directed on box for Two-Crust Pie using 9-inch glass pie pan.
In 2-quart saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion; cook 2 minutes, stirring frequently, until tender. Stir in flour, salt and pepper until well blended. Gradually stir in broth and milk, cooking and stirring until bubbly and thickened.
Stir in chicken and mixed vegetables. Remove from heat. Spoon chicken mixture into crust-lined pan. Top with second crust; seal edge and flute. Cut slits in several places in top crust.
. Bake 30 to 40 minutes or until crust is golden brown. During last 15 to 20 minutes of baking, cover crust edge with strips of foil to prevent excessive browning. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

Did they eat it?

My husband and father-in-law loved it. Since I made it late in the evening — they were driving in from my stepson’s Coast Guard graduation — I fed the kids something else. But I’m betting they like this one too.
