This is a great recipe when you have leftovers in the fridge – meat, veggies, whatever! Also, you can make a homemade pie crust recipe if you don’t have the pre-made ones on hand.
Homemade Pot Pie
1 (15 oz.) package refrigerated pie crusts
1/3 cup margarine or butter
1/3 cup chopped onion
1/3 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 cup chicken broth
2/3 cup milk
2 1/2 to 3 cups COOKED meat – chopped chicken, turkey breast, etc.
2 cups frozen mixed vegetables, thawed, or canned will do too.
Heat oven to 425 degrees. Prepare pie crusts according to directions – place one crust in bottom of 9 inch pie pan.
In medium saucepan, melt margarine over medium heat. Add onion; cook 2 minutes or until tender. Stir in flour, salt, and pepper until well blended. Gradually stir in broth and milk; cook, stirring constantly, until bubbly and thickened.
Add meat and mixed vegetables; remove from heat. Spoon meat mixture into crust-lined pie pan. Top with second crust and flute; cut slits in several places.
Bake 425 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. (6 servings) Can also be adapted to make individual mini-pies.
