Preparing the Crust:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt.
  2. Add the cold, cubed butter and use a pastry cutter or your fingertips to incorporate the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Gradually add ice water, one tablespoon at a time, and mix until the dough starts to come together.
  4. Divide the dough into two equal portions, shape them into discs, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

Preparing the Filling:

  1. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat.
  2. Add the diced onion, carrots, and celery. Sauté until the vegetables are tender, about 5-7 minutes.
  3. Stir in the minced garlic, peas, and corn. Cook for an additional 2 minutes.
  4. Sprinkle the flour over the vegetable mixture and stir to combine. Cook for 2 minutes to eliminate the raw flour taste.
  5. Slowly pour in the chicken broth and whole milk while stirring constantly to avoid lumps.
  6. Add the diced chicken and dried thyme. Season with salt and pepper. Allow the mixture to simmer and thicken for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

Assembling and Baking:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Roll out one of the chilled pastry discs into a circle large enough to line a 9-inch (23 cm) pie dish.
  3. Pour the chicken and vegetable filling into the pastry-lined dish.
  4. Roll out the second pastry disc to create the pie’s top crust. Place it over the filling and seal the edges.
  5. Cut a few small slits in the top crust to allow steam to escape.
  6. Optional: Brush the top crust with a beaten egg for a golden finish.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 45-55 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbly.
  8. Let the chicken pot pie cool for a few minutes before serving.

Homemade chicken pot pie is a delightful meal that brings warmth and nostalgia to any table. With a buttery, flaky crust and a rich, creamy filling, it’s a true comfort food classic. This recipe allows you to recreate this beloved dish in your own kitchen, ensuring a satisfying meal that your family and friends will cherish. Serve it up on a chilly evening or for a special occasion, and watch as smiles light up the room with each delicious bite. Enjoy!
