Chicken Pot Pie - Supper tonight!

Here it is! This is what we made and ate for supper tonight.
Prior to cooking!

After cooking!

In the plate!

And the Pie Crust

My Modifications:
  • Shredded the frozen butter instead of using cubed butter (mixing it into flour mixture while shredding)
  • Don't have a food processor, so kneaded it slightly and due to shredded butter it was quite simple.

My Modifications:
  • Omitted Celery
  • Added a medium diced potato
  • Added a pinch more celery seed
  • As others indicated in feedback - used 2 Cups chicken broth to cook the vegetables and chicken.
  • For they "gravy" part I put the milk in a separate bowl cold, and mixed the flour and a bit of corn starch to it while cold.  Then added it separately to the onion and butter mixture, then poured all the veggie/chicken with broth mixture into that and simmered until thickened.  (and you can see that in the fry pan above the uncooked pie.)
  • Added 1/2 tsp of garlic powder (with the pepper/salt/celery seed)
  • Added 1/4 tsp of cumin (with the pepper/salt/celery seed)
