Method of Preparation

Prepare the Filling

  • Cook the chicken in boiling water until done. Cool, shred, and set aside.
  • In a large skillet, melt butter and sauté onions, carrots, and celery until softened.
  • Stir in flour to make a roux. Gradually add chicken broth and milk, stirring constantly until the sauce thickens.
  • Add the chicken, peas, salt, and pepper. Cook for a few minutes.

Assemble the Pot Pie

  • Preheat oven to 220°C (425°F).
  • Place one pie crust in the bottom of a pie dish. Pour in the chicken mixture.
  • Cover with the second crust, seal edges, and make slits for steam to escape. Brush with beaten egg.


  • Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the crust is golden brown. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.

Tips for Culinary Success

  • For a richer flavor, use homemade chicken broth.
  • Add a variety of vegetables like mushrooms or potatoes for more texture.
  • Let the pie rest after baking for easier slicing.


Can I use a different type of meat?

How do I prevent the crust from getting soggy?

Pre-bake the bottom crust for a few minutes before adding the filling.

Can I freeze the pot pie?
