Classic Homemade Chicken Pot Pie with Green Chopped Salad


  • 1 cup chicken stock (Swanson’s unsalted is recommended)
  • 1 quart whole milk
  • 1/2 cup regular flour
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 pound boneless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 cup carrots, cut into 1/8-inch thick slices
  • 2 celery stalks, sliced into 1/8-inch thick pieces (1 cup)
  • 1 cup frozen peas, unthawed
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt (use less if using salty stock)
  • Pepper, to taste


  • 1 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 egg yolk + 1 teaspoon water, beaten (for eggwash)


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, combine the chicken stock, milk, and flour until smooth. Set aside.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat.
  4. Cook and stir the onion, carrot, and celery in the pan for 2 minutes.
  5. Add the chicken and cook for an additional 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
  6. Stir in the peas, followed by the chicken stock mixture, salt, and pepper. Cook uncovered for 2-3 minutes, until the mixture thickens.
  7. Fill a 9-inch deep dish pie pan halfway with the chicken and vegetable mixture. Cover and set aside.
  8. In a mixing dish, combine the flour and salt.
  9. Pour in the vegetable oil and milk all at once. Stir everything together using a fork.
  10. Form the dough into a 5-inch disc between two sheets of floured parchment or wax paper. Roll it out into a 12-inch circle.
  11. Brush the rim of the pie pan with the eggwash.
  12. Carefully transfer the crust from the parchment or wax paper to the pie pan. Trim or flute any overhanging crust, pressing it down.
  13. Brush the entire crust, including the edges, with the eggwash. Use a sharp knife to poke a dozen holes in the top crust to allow steam to escape.
  14. Place the pie pan on a baking pan lined with foil and bake for 25 minutes.
  15. Allow the chicken pot pie to sit for at least 20 minutes before serving.
