Chicken Dinner Pie

1 Ea Pie Crust
1 Tb Oil
4 Tb Butter
2 C Mushrooms, sliced
1 Ea Onion, minced
4 Tb Flour
1 tsp Salt
¼ tsp Pepper
1 tsp Thyme
14 Oz Light Cream
14 Oz Chicken Broth+
4 C Cooked, Shredded Chicken
16 Oz Frozen Mixed Vegetables
1 Ea Egg

Preheat the oven to 425º F.

Roll out the pie crust dough and cut tops for 4-6 ramekins. Reserve on a cookie sheet in the refrigerator.

Heat the oil and butter in a 5½-quart sauté pan. Sauté the mushrooms and onions until they begin to brown around the edges.

Blend in the flour, salt, pepper and thyme. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally for 3 minutes.

Stir in the milk and chicken broth. Bring it to a boil and reduce to a simmer, stirring constantly. Simmer for 2-3 minutes. Stir in the chicken and vegetables and simmer, covered, for 5-10 minutes.

Fill 16-ounce ramekins or soup crocks with the cooked mixture. Top with the pie crust rounds. Brush the crusts with an egg wash.

Place the ramekins on a cookie sheet and into the heated oven. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until the crusts are golden brown.

Note: The filling will dry out in the oven so you may want to make the sauce a little looser for filling the ramekins.

One of our local restaurants serves a similar dish.

They bake off the pastry rounds and top the hot chicken mixture with one just prior to serving.

I make a similar casserole and top it with a prepared stuffing mix.

Andy, what do you mean by "1 ea onion" and "1 ea egg"?
LOL, can't figure out if it is a typo or an expression I've never heard or what!

Hello AlamocityPopcorn, Welcome to DC. Let us know if you do try it, I think from all the comments you can't go wrong!

:blush: think I would have just said 1 onion and 1 egg.
I was thinking that 1 each per ramekin was a bit much.. :ROFLMAO:
I choose to do it that way to maintain a consistent format throughout the ingredients list. Every quantity has a unit of measure - tsp, Tb, C, Oz, Ea, etc.

For the egg and onion, I could have said Lg, Med, Sm.

Yes, that certainly does make sense. I often double space, etc. to help a recipe look more evenly laid out and the list more easily read.

Although for the simple-minded, specifically me, the Lg, Med, Sm would have been better understood. :blush:

In fact, I've made some changes in the area since this recipe was written. I'm gradually converting to Lg, Med, Sm.

Oh my heavens, that is a great chicken pot pie! We had it for dinner last night and we enjoyed every bite.
Having been raised on those soupy pot pies that came in aluminum bowls right out of the grocery, both of us were not excited about pot pie. After reading Andy's recipe, I decided to risk offending my husband and making one. His first question was "This looks like a pot pie. What is it, it tastes so good?"

Thank you Marlingargener. Actually the recipe is my SO's. I agree it's delicious. I was in the same boat as you. Never cared for chicken pie so I tried hers for the first time with some apprehension. I too was pleasantly surprised.
