The Pioneer Woman’s Chicken Pot Pie

It does not get much better than pie. It just does not. It is the brothy sauce ... this golden crust, crispy ... these tender, tasty vegetables.

My God, gosh, gosh. A million times. Infinite.

This is a fact that I awhile back. What I like the pot pie is, you can cook the chicken right then and there ... or you can use the leftover chicken (or turkey) if you have it. You can cook a pie crust for the occasion ... or you can use a crust you might have languished in the freezer. Chicken Pot Pie does not have to be a huge test!

Here's how I did it.

Dice up an onion, with some carrots and celery, then throw them in a pan with a little butter over medium heat.

Stir the vegetables around and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, until they begin to soften.

Then throw in cooked poultry, whether chicken or turkey! I like having a white meat mixture and dark shredded into pieces.

You can get meat by using one of the following methods:

* Boil the whole fryer cut up for 25-30 minutes. Remove the meat pieces and let them cool until you can handle, then remove all the meat from the bones with two forks.

* Have a great Thanksgiving dinner and wrap the turkey leftovers.

* A roast chicken in the oven and shred the meat.

* Buy a rotisserie chicken at the supermarket dang dang and call it a day.

Stir in chicken in the vegetables and let it warm up ...

Then sprinkle a little flour all over. Stir in flour and dip leave it in the veggie / meat mixture and cook for a minute or so ...

Pour a little chicken! (You can also dabble in a little wine at this stage that I absolutely love, but I do not usually do because the five people I live with do not like the taste of wine. Please feel sorry for me. Thank you.)
