Healthier Chicken Pot Pie loaded with vegetables! A delicious and cozy meal for a fall day.

chicken pot pie Chicken Pot Pie is a meal that always comforted me as a kid. However, when I was younger the only time I would really eat it is at my friends house. And it was always the frozen pies. As I got older, a little wiser, and more health conscious, I started to make my own and realized that it’s easy.

You might think chicken pot pie isn’t healthy. But this recipe only uses a crust on top and is crustless on the bottom, which you won’t miss. I also made this recipe easier using a pre made dough crust. This saved me a lot of valuable time. I suggest you do the same!

Here’s What You Need:

  • 1 pound of chicken thighs cooked and chopped
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 carrots chopped
  • 3 celery stalks chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/4 cup of flour
  • 1 can of corn
  • 1 can of peas
  • 2 potatoes boiled until tender and diced small
  • 2 cups of chicken broth
  • splash of white wine
  • splash of milk
  • italian seasoning
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • thyme
  • 1 unbaked pie crust room temperature
  • 1 egg and 2 tablespoons water

What to do:

  1. Begin by cooking your chicken (you can use store bought cooked chicken if you wish). I preheated the oven to 400 degrees and baked chicken thighs for 25 minutes with olive oil, salt, pepper, and italian seasoning. Cool and chop for pie.
  2. While chicken is cooking preheat large sauté pan with olive oil. Add onion, carrot, celery, and garlic and cook for about 5 minutes until translucent. Stir in cooked chicken until warm. Sprinkle flour over chicken and onion mixture. Pour in can of peas, corn, and potatoes.
  3. Then add 2 cups of chicken broth and splash of wine. Let cook and thicken about 1 minute. Then add additional seasonings. Add milk and let thicken and remove from heat.
