I've never made pot pie before and this wasn't as creamy (gravy-like in the pie itself) as I generally like but that's because I wasn't paying attention and had a little wine (or 3)! However, it was yummy and so I'm posting it.
First, I decided to use my ramikens. I have these, I use them mostly for my individual fruit crisps, but decided that if I used them for pot pies, I could freeze the extras and make the left over roast chicken I had last even longer. So that's what I did.
spray butter 1 1/2 tsp chicken buillion (or one cube)
1 Tbsp. paprika 1 Tbsp. savory seasoning blend
salt & pepper 1 Tbsp. flour
2 - 2 1/2 cups cooked chicken 2 large carrots, chopped
1/3 large onion, diced 3-4 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 cup peas 3 small to medium potatos, cut into small cubes
1 box (32 oz) chicken broth (or stock) 1/2 cup milk
2 Tbsp. grated parmesan cheese 1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 box pre-made pie crust (cotains 2 crusts), unrolled and each cut into quarters
1. Sautee onions and garlic in olive oil for about 5 minutes on high heat. Add carrots and reduce heat to medium high. Cook about 3 more minutes.
2. Add potatoes, chicken broth, savory seasoning, paprika, chicken buillion, salt and pepper. Stir, cover and cook for about 5 minutes. Add peas and chicken, cover and cook 5 more minutes or until potatoes are done. (You may reduce heat if necessary but stop cooking before potatoes lose all firmness. You are baking them so you want a little firm left.)
Houston? We have a problem.
5. Add milk to the broth in the pot. Add flour/broth mixture back to the broth in pot. Stir to combine. Reduce heat and cook uncovered for 5 minutes. Broth will thicken slightly. You can do whatever you need/want at this point to make this more gravy like or you can leave this as is. I'm sure using less than 32 oz of broth would help it thicken, also.
7. Once the ramikens are full, take a piece of pie crust and put it over the top. Seal the crust around the edge of the ramiken. I just cut off excess crust if I had it but if you don't want to do that, you don't have to. Spray tops of crusts lightly with spray butter and poke some holes in the tops to let steam escape.
