Quick Chicken Pot Pie
Is quick chicken pot pie worth eating? A fast homemade sauce is the key to this 30-minute recipe.
Why This Recipe Works
Chicken pot pie is a classic comfort food that takes a long, long time to prepare. For a quick version, a store-bought rotisserie chicken worked perfectly for the meat in the filling. Frozen peas and carrots worked fine, but we sautéed fresh onion and celery for the richest-flavored filling. We made a flour-thickened sauce for the filling with a blend of canned chicken broth and heavy cream. Cooking the flour along with the vegetables removed its starchy flavor. Finally, cooking the filling and biscuits separately saved time.
