  • 1 cup sliced carrots

  • 1 cup frozen green peas

  • 1/2 cup sliced celery

  • 1/3 cup butter

  • 1/3 cup chopped onion

I then prepare the brothy sauce, combining ingredients like chicken broth, milk, and seasonings. As I stir the mixture, it gradually thickens and develops a rich and savory flavor, coating the chicken and vegetables with its comforting embrace.

With the chicken, vegetables, and sauce prepared, it’s time to assemble the pot pie. I place the filling into a pie dish, ensuring an even distribution of the flavorful ingredients. The anticipation builds as I unroll the pie crust and carefully place it over the filling, sealing in all the goodness.

As the Chicken Pot Pie bakes in the oven, the tantalizing aroma fills the air. The golden crust turns crisp and flaky, while the filling becomes bubbling and aromatic. The sight of the pie, with its golden hue and steam escaping from the edges, is truly inviting.

Each bite is a comforting blend of tender chicken, flavorful vegetables, and the warm embrace of the brothy sauce. The combination of textures and flavors brings a sense of satisfaction and contentment.
