Homemade Chicken Pot Pie

Make Classic Dishes Your Own by Adding Some of your Favorite Ingredients!

I have never made Chicken Pot Pie before, nor have I ever had it made for me. But I wanted to try and make a version of it without looking at any recipe, just going for it based on what I think would taste good.

Ingredients

• Pie Crust (was short on time     :/)
• 4 boneless chicken thighs
• 1 box of angel hair pasta, or   other pasta of your liking
• 1 can cream of celery
• 1 can chicken stock
• 1/4 cup peas
• 1/3 cup corn
• 1/4 cup diced carrots
• 1/2 sweet potato
• 1/2 sweet onion
• 1/4 cup butter
• salt and pepper
• 1/3 cup parmesan cheese
• 1/3 cup flour

Directions

Boil a medium sized pot of water and add in noodles. While water is heating, cook chicken in large/deep skillet with salt and pepper. Chop sweet potato and onion and replace with chicken when it is browned. Chop chicken into thin strips and add back into skillet. pour chicken stock and cream of celery and allow to boil. Add in flour and butter and mix. Finally mix in the remaining vegetables and cooked noodles. Simmer on low and prepare pie crust in a greased casserole dish. Pour the contents of the skillet into the crust laden dish slowly and carefully. Sprinkle the top with most of the parmesan cheese, add the top of the crust and use the rest on top. crinkle the edges to form a seam and make an X shaped slit in the center. Cook for 50 minutes to an hour on 400. Recommended beverage: 1% Milk. Enjoy!
