Chicken Pot Pie

Chicken Pot Pie

Vegetable oil cooking spray
4 tablespoons
1/4 small white onion, finely chopped (optional)*
4 carrots, peeled and diced
1/2 cup flour
2 32-ounce boxes chicken broth
2 22.6-ounce cans condensed cream of chicken soup
4 cups shredded rotisserie chicken**
1 cup frozen peas
Salt and pepper
2 8-ounce tubes refrigerated crescent rolls

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 9x13x3 (deep) baking pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a large soup pot or Dutch oven, melt the butter oven medium-low heat. Add the onion (if using) and saute until tender and translucent. Add the carrots and cook until slightly softened, about 4 minutes. Stir in the flour and cook for 1 minute, stirring often and scraping the bottom of the pot.
  3. Whisk in the chicken broth and continue whisking until the flour is fully incorporated. Stir in the chicken soup. Increase the heat to medium-high and bring to a gentle boil. Simmer for 5 minutes.
  4. Remove from the heat and stir in the shredded chicken and frozen peas. Taste and season if necessary with salt and pepper. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish.
  5. Open crescent dough and unroll the contents. Press the perforations together inside each rectangle to make a single rectangle. Place dough on top of the stew neatly, covering entire surface.
  6. Bake until the crust is nicely browned and the stew is bubbling around the edges, 15 to 20 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.

My notes: I halved this recipe because I’m only feeding a family of four. The full recipe is supposed to yield 10 to 12 servings. This turned out pretty soupy, but it did taste good. I also thought the crescent roll crust was a little doughy. I might try pre-cooking the crust a little bit if I make this again.

*I often use dried onion if I don’t have time to chop up an onion.
**I just poached some chicken breasts. You can use the poaching liquid in the recipe also.

Chicken pot pie is a nice, cozy dish to make this time of year. Let me know if you have a favorite chicken pot pie recipe!
