Last week the weather was getting a bit cool for my taste. The past few days have been much nicer… more like summer – and I love summer. As I mentioned in my last post about decorating for fall, this is not the best time of year for me. I look for ways to boost my mood. Fun fall decorations help, but so do comfort foods! Unfortunately (for my thighs), I tend to turn to food for comfort and chicken pot pie is one of those cool weather favorites. Here is an easy and delicious individual chicken pot pie recipe for you to make for you and your spouse.
- 3 Tbsp. butter
- 1â4 cup flour
- 1â2 onion diced
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 3â4 cup milk
- 1â2 tsp each salt and pepper
- 1 tsp herbs de Provence
- 1 cup cooked diced chicken
- 3â4 cup frozen or fresh peas and carrots
- 1â2 tsp baking powder
- 1 cup flour
- 1â2 cup milk
- 3 Tbsp. butter
- Preheat oven to 375F.
- In a large skillet add 3 Tbsp. of butter and 1â2 onion diced. Keep heat on low and sautÃ© for 5 minutes until onions are translucent.
- Slowly add 1â4 cup of flour and mix with a whisk to form a roux.
- Whisk in 1 cup of chicken broth followed by 3â4 cup of milk.
- Season with salt, pepper, and herbs de Provence.
- Next, add in diced chicken and peas and carrots.
- Cook a few more minutes until everything is combined well and vegetables are tender.
- Prepare ramekins by filling each with the chicken mixture. The filling should reach just below the top lip of the ramekin.
- In another bowl mix together baking powder and flour.
- Work 3 Tbsp. of butter into the flour until it is broken apart.
- Use a fork to mix in 1â2 cup milk to form a batter.
- Spread the batter on the top of each of the ramekins.
- Place ramekins on a baking sheet and slide into the oven.
- Bake for approximately 20 minutes until the tops are golden brown. Serve hot!
