HOW TO MAKE CHICKEN POT PIE
The steps are quite easy for making this homemade Chicken Pot Pie.
First, cook some chicken.
But..you could do this step ahead of time and add it to the pie when you need it. (I like to keep some cooked and chopped chicken in the freezer or if I'm really in a pinch, I'll cook some quickly in my Instant Pot. Gotta love, fast, hands-free cooking, especially when it comes to meat!)
Then you'll saute some veggies, add in some broth and potatoes and cook for about 10 minutes.
You'll pour it all into a pre-made pie crust (you could always make your own, but this saves a lot of time by buying a pre-made, unbaked crust).
You can make one large pot pie, or for individual servings, use ramekins.
It's totally optional, but you can make a cute Pi symbol in the crust for extra festiveness, like this:
Oh yeah. I can just taste this by looking at it. Serve these pot pies warm with your favorite salad for a fun dinner on Pie Day!
