Ok…so my Food Fridays did not start out real consistent. I apologize for that.

potpieBut I do have a yummy recipe for today:

Homemade Chicken Potpie

2 Tbs olive oil
1 medium yellow onion – diced
2 Tbs flour
1 1/2 cup chicken broth (I highly recommend an organic brand, or at the very least, make sure you get one that doesn’t have MSG in it)
1 bag frozen mixed veggies (I like the one with corn, peas, carrots, and green beans)
1 – 2 cups cooked chicken – shredded (depends on how much chicken you want…I personally like more veggies than chicken)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 piecrusts

Saute onion in oil for 3 minutes. Add flour, stirring constantly for 1 minute. Still stirring, add broth. Cook until thickened about 4 minutes. Add mixed veggies, salt, and pepper. Remove from heat.

Spoon mixture into bottom pie crust. Top with the other pie crust. Moisten edges and pinch down. Cut a few small slivers on top. Place pie pan on cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees until golden brown, about 15-18 minutes.

This is so easy, yummy, and I love that it is made with such simple, pure ingredients. I can have my potpie without all the preservatives.

  1. I make a very similar recipe and put a square of puff pastry on top to cut back on carbs. Just a thought for all you carb-conscious people out there.

  2. This looks so yummy!! I’m going to post it on craving grace if you don’t mind.

  3. Rinnie, It is good! My kids like it too. In fact, Natalie will even ask for me to make it. You are more than welcome to post it on Craving Grace. In fact, feel free to post any of them that I post on here.
