Chicken Pot Pie
I made Gert's chicken pot pie the other night because I have all the ingredients at home. I omitted the potatoes because we don't really like it and added the corn kernels. I made my own pie crusts as well. With a food processor, pie crust is very easy to make. I did the lattice by hands, didn't know we get to buy the lattice pie cutter these days, can really save a lot of work.
Since I used raw chicken breasts instead of cooked and omitted the potatoes. My cooking method was slightly different. First, I had to saute the chicken until cooked with the onion, and I only used one cup of water since I didn't have to boil cook the potatoes. Lastly I thicken the sauce with some cornstarch.
A slice of the pot pie the lazy way (instead of the individual ones, Gert & I made it into one big pie)! My hubby actually liked it and had three huge pieces. Edda liked it too except the picky Evy. I think that was because she didn't like celery but she did finish the top crust and most of the filling. Gert, thanks for sharing this recipe. :o)
