This recipe was a lot of work, but I'm definitely going to be making it again. It's worth the extra work to have it mostly from scratch. Even the boys at it... and it had vegetables inside!!
1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cubed
1 cup sliced carrots
1 cup frozen green peas
1/2 cup sliced celery
1/3 cup butter
1/3 cup chopped onion
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon celery seed
1 3/4 cups chicken broth
2 (9 inch) unbaked pie crusts
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
In a saucepan, combine chicken, carrots, peas, and celery. Add water to cover and boil for 15 minutes. Remove from heat, drain and set aside.
In the saucepan over medium heat, cook onions in butter until soft and translucent. Stir in flour, garlic salt, pepper, and celery seed. Slowly stir in chicken broth. Simmer over medium-low heat until thick. Remove from heat and stir in chicken mixture.
Fill the bottom pie crust with mixture. Cover with top crust, seal edges, and cut away excess dough. Make several small slits in the top to allow steam to escape.
Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes, or until pastry is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Cool for 10 minutes before serving.
(I made these in custard cups with pre-made pie dough. They took about 25 minutes to bake.)
