  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Combine chicken, carrots, peas, and celery in a saucepan. Cover with water. Boil until chicken is no longer pink in the middle and vegetables are fork tender, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat, drain, and set aside.
  3. Cook and stir onions in butter in a saucepan over medium heat, until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in flour, salt, pepper, and celery seed. Slowly stir in chicken broth and milk. Simmer over medium-low heat until thick, about 5 minutes. Stir in parsley and remove from heat. Set aside.
  4. Place chicken mixture in bottom pie crust; pour hot liquid mixture over. Cover with top crust, seal edges, and cut away excess dough. Make several small slits in top to allow steam to escape.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until pie is golden brown and filling is bubbly, 30 to 35 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes before serving.

I had half a roasted chicken leftover so I approached this recipe a little differently. I used 3 Tablespoons of grapeseed oil instead of the butter (a little healthier) and cooked the onion, di...

I think the potato was too much. I think it made very dense. I'm looking for a pie that has more of a gravy stew filling.

Easy to make, very very very good!!!! Even my picky husband liked it. I actually simplified it and used canned carrot and pea mix, eliminated the celery and used pre-cooked honey baked chicken. ...

My fiancee and I both really liked this chicken pot pie! We both agreed that there were too many pea's. Next time we will probably 1/2 pea's and 1/2 something else. I also couldn't find whole wh...

There really isn't much difference between this and the original, which I had been meaning to make. I normally use low fat or fat free milk anyway and the minimum amount of butter so that was in...

This is a great recipe. It is better than the recipe I grew up on and brought forth true "comfort food" rewards. I too added garlic, tarragon, basil and fresh parsley (which I rescued from the...

Big blizzard tonight so it's a perfect night for this recipe. The very first time I've ever made one, especially made from scratch. Didn't buy the crusts, also made them from scratch. It was...
