This was one of my favorite meals growing up...and I usually requested it for my birthday dinner!
This is an easy recipe to double too! I have to double it for our family, and there's usually some leftover my me to each for lunch the next day. :)
Now...I've never really been great at making pie crust...so I cheat and use the store-bought dough. It makes the prep time much faster too. And I'm all about quick prep meals!
shhhh...don't tell my mom!
Old Fashioned Golden Chicken Pie
2 C. cooked chicken (cubed)
1 Tbsp. flour
1 C. sliced carrots
1 C. chopped onions
1/2 C. sliced celery
1/2 tsp. thyme leaves, crushed
1/8 tsp. pepper
1/4 C butter or margarine
1 can Golden Mushroom Soup (made by Campbell's)
Pastry for 2 pie crusts
Toss cooked chicken with flour, then set aside. In saucepan, cook carrots, onions, and celery with thyme and pepper in butter until tender. Stir in soup and chicken mix. Pour into 9 inch pastry-lined pie pan. Roll out remaining pastry: cut into 1/2 inch strips, then lattice the top of pie.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes, or until crust is lightly browned. Serve with gravy.
