GOOD CHICKEN POT PIE RECIPE


Ingredients
For the filling:
  • 6 Tbsp unsalted butter softened
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • A small onion finely chopped
  • A medium carrot peeled and diced
  • 1 celery stalk diced
  • 1 cup condensed chicken broth or 1 cup water plus 2 chicken bouillon cubes
  • 1/2 medium size russet potato peeled and diced
  • 2 medium size baked chicken breasts diced (link to the recipe is in the post)
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • Salt to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste

For the pie pastry:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 cup 227 g cold unsalted butter, cut into cubes
  • 1/4 cup ice water
  • 1 Tbsp white vinegar
  • 1 egg yolk plus 2 tsp milk mixed well, for brushing


Instructions
  1. To prepare the filling, combine 4 tablespoons of the softened butter with the flour in small bowl. Set aside.
  2. In a separate bowl, dissolve the cornstarch in the milk. Set aside.
  3. In a large saucepan, add two tablespoons of butter and saute the onion, carrot, and celery over medium-high heat for about 3 minutes.
  4. Add the broth and the potatoes, and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for about 10 minutes or until the vegetables are just tender.
  5. Add the butter and flour mix and bring to a gentle boil, constantly stirring.
  6. Pour in the milk and cornstarch mixture and bring to a boil. Add salt and pepper to taste. Stir in the chicken and peas. Cover and let cool.
  7. To prepare the pie dough, in a food processor, combine the flour and salt. Add the butter and pulse a few times until the butter is the size of peas. Add the water and vinegar and pulse a few more times. It does not need to come to a ball. It will look like a big pile of crumbs, and that's what you want.
