  • Roll gently on a floured surface. Set your pie crust top aside until you are ready to add it to the top of your chicken pot pie.

Homemade Cream Of Mushroom Soup

  • In a large heavy saucepan, cook mushrooms in the chicken broth with onion, black pepper,and thyme until tender, about 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Whisk in the flour until smooth. Add the half and half, stirring constantly, bring soup to a boil and cook until thickened. Adjust seasonings to taste.

Healthy Chicken Pot Pie Filling

  • Preheat oven to 350-degrees.
  • Spice the chicken breasts with desired spices. Sauté the chicken breasts in butter on the stovetop for 15-minutes until the juices run clear.
  • Once the chicken is cooked, shred it with a fork and set aside.
  • In a Dutch Oven, Place a tab of butter in the same pan you used to cook the chicken and add the frozen peas, fresh sliced carrots, diced potatoes, onion, and celery. Sauté for 10-minutes.
  • Next, add the heavy cream and sauté for another 5-minutes. Add the Homemade Cream of Mushroom and sauté for 10-more minutes. Add the shredded chicken and mix everything together.
  • Leave everything in the Dutch Oven and get the top pie crust.
  • Take the prepared pie crust and carefully spread it on top of the chicken pot mixture. Make indents with the crust so that it will stick to the Dutch Oven.
  • Cover the Dutch Oven and place it into the convetional oven.
