This came from the same friend as the brownies.
This is what she made for us when we had Luke- It arrived at our house the day before we came home from the hospital. I called my mom to check on things, and she said, "you have got to come home so you can eat this chicken pot pie!" I don't know if there will be any left!
I love to make this especially when I need to take a meal to someone. It is so great the first day, but even better the 2nd!
6 Tablespoons butter or margarine
salt to taste
1/8 teaspoon Thyme
6 Tablespoons flour
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 cup chicken broth
1 1/2 cup half & half ( I have used regular milk-and that works fine)
2 cups cooked, then cubed or torn chicken or turkey
1 large carrot, diced and cooked until done
1/2 cup peas, cooked (I have used 1 cup frozen peas, cooked then drained, instead of fresh peas)
4-6 new potatoes, cooked and cubed
1 double crust pastry shell (pillsbury pie crust-red box- or generic -refrigerated section)
Cook first 5 ingredients on low heat until bubbly. Remove from heat and add chicken broth and cream (or milk). Heat to boiling, stirring constantly till thick. Fold together sauce with chicken and vegetables. Pour into uncooked pastry shell. (can mound high in shell) Put pastry shell on top and finish like you would an apple pie - vents. Bake in preheated oven @425 for 30 minutes.
Serve with tossed salad and rolls.
