Homemade Potpie Recipe  

Posted by Johnny

This is my homemade potpie. The crust is not homemade, but it is very easy to make if you have a little extra time.
This is how I put it together:
2-Rolled Pie Shells (1 pkg)
2 bone-in chicken breast
5 small potatoes (Approx 2 Cups)
1 can green beans
1 cup carrots
1 cup corn
1 cup peas
3-4 Tbl Corn Starch

Boil your chicken in approx. 6 cups water. Add either fresh or dried onions and garlic(your preference on amount), while it's boiling.
Peel & dice carrots & potatoes. In two different saucepans boil your carrots and potatoes till fork tender.
After your chicken is cooked take it off the bone. I use latex gloves to handle the hot chicken. Then dice your chicken. By this time your carrots and potatoes should be done. Drain them and add them in a large mixing to your diced chicken. add your other vegetables.
Now in a saucepan take approx. 3 cups of your chicken broth and bring to a boil. Take your corn starch and add water to it until it makes a white liquid. Not pasty, you want it not too runny and not too thick. Add this to your broth, this will thicken your broth. From here you can add more or less of either depending on how much you will need. Cook until thickened.
Add this to your chicken and veggies. Mix well.
Place your pie shells into the bottom of a 9x13 pan, cut off extra crust use on top. If you want more crust you will need to buy another package or make more.
Bake at 400 degrees for 45-60 minutes or until bubbling in center.

This is a great recipe to use leftover veggies or stockpiled veggies.
