Chicken Pot Pie

Chicken Pot Pie

This is a traditional chicken pot pie recipe made healthier with a whole grain crust. I made the crust with oat flour since I didn’t buy any flour for this Organic Costco Meal Plan. We had no complaints with the taste or texture of the crust, since we are used to whole grain foods. But if you cook with all purpose flour, you could substitute it if you are expecting the traditional crust.

And by the way – BIG SCORE! This recipe was large enough that we ate it for dinner one night, then had leftovers for lunch a few days later.

Ingredients

  • For the crust:
  • 1 1/4 cups oat flour
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cut into pieces
  • 3 to 5 tablespoons ice water
  • For the filling:
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 4 carrots, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 1/2 cup oat flour
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 cups shredded cooked chicken
  • 1/3 cup chopped parsley (optional)

Instructions

  1. For the crust:
  2. In a food processor, mix together the flour, sugar and salt. Add butter a few pieces at a time. Continue to add butter, and mix just until the mixture looks like a coarse meal. Add three tablespoons of the ice water. Pulse. Try squeezing the dough. If it holds together, it is done. If it is still crumbly, try adding another tablespoon of water. When dough forms, shape it into a disk, wrap in plastic and refrigerate for an hour or until ready to use.
  3. For the filling:
  4. Preheat oven to 375.
  5. In a large saucepan, melt the butter. Add onion, carrots and celery and cook until soft. Add the garlic and cook about 30 seconds more. Add oat flour and stir to coat the vegetables. Add the broth slowly while continuously whisking. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and allow to simmer until it is slightly thickened - about 7 to 9 minutes. Stir in peas, chicken and parsley. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Pour filling into a large 9 x 13 pan.
  6. Roll dough out into a rectangle large enough to cover pan. Add more flour if too sticky. Cover dish with dough and cut a few vents in the top. Bake 45 minutes.

    Was the crust flaky too?

    Can I try to make oat flour at home since I can’t find it where I live?
