for belly and soul

It may be cold outside, but this dish will warm you right up! Homemade chicken pot pie is the name and you are going to love, love, love it! I got this recipe from my mom and the hubs practically begs me to make it for him. Thanks, Mom! It works in all seasons, but truly is comforting on a cold it is:

Chicken Pot Pie

1/3 cup butter
1/3 cup flour 
1/3 cup onion
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. pepper
1 1/2 cup chicken broth
1/3 cup milk
Approx. 2 cup cut-up cooked chicken
1 (12 oz.) pkg. frozen mixed veggies
Cut up fresh potatoes, celery, and carrots (optional)
Pie crust (frozen works well)

Melt butter, sautee onion in butter until clear. Blend in flour, salt and pepper. Stir constantly until smooth. Remove from heat. Stir in broth and milk. Heat to boiling. Boil and stir one minute. Add in veggies and chicken. Let cook for a while stirring regularly. Pour mixture over pie crust. Top with another pie crust and flute edges. Cut slits in center. Cook uncovered at 425 degrees for 30-35 minutes until crust is brown.
