Default My Chicken Pot Pie!

I smoked a ton of chicken a couple of weeks ago, pulled it and stuck it in the freezer. I wanted to something different to do with it so I asked in a thread for some chicken pot pie recipes. I got a couple and gave it my own little twist.

As I was getting the butter out of the fridge to saute the onions in I spied a little left over fatty. I decided that a couple of diced slices would go nice.

One cup of diced onion, the fatty and 3/4 of a stick of butter cooking away in a pan.

After the onions were cooked I added a little over 1/4 cup of flour and cooked the roux for about 3 minutes. When that was a nice brown color I added 2.5 cups of chicken stock and 1/4 cup of milk. When that had thickened up nice I added 2 cups of smoked chicken, 2 cups of frozen veggies and 1 tablespoon of Todd's Dirt.

The filling then went into a larger crust filled ramekin.

Added a top crust.

Here the pie is in the oven.

Lots of good stuff in the pie.

And on the way to the mouth...

I am no longer bite me Shane.

I never really thought of making my own pot pie. But I'd be damned now if I am not now.

That looks excellent. I knew the roux wouyld be better than the regular COC soup. And the crust I know is delicious. So far superior to the dry, bland, usually overcooked frozed cpp crust.

Damn good meal.
