I don't know about you, but this time of the year I adore a skillet meal. When it is cold outside, the smell of chicken pot pie baking in the oven is especially comforting. I've adapted this recipe from Chatelaine Magazine, and in my opinion, my version is even more flavourful. Serve it with a side salad and you've got a quick, easy weeknight comfort meal. Now if I could just figure out how to walk the dog after dinner without going out into the cold night air. I hope that you enjoy this meal as much as my hubby does. I have to hold him back from taking three servings.

  • 3 tbsp butter, divided
  • 1 sweet onion, chopped
  • 1 celery stalk, diced
  • 1 tbsp thyme
  • 6 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups chicken broth, reduced-sodium
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 4 skinless and boneless chicken breasts, cubed (even-sized pieces)
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 cups peas, frozen
  • 1 cup shredded carrot
  • 1 deep-dish pie crust

Preheat oven to 425F.
Melt butter in a 9-in. cast iron, oven-safe frying pan over medium. Add onions, celery, garlic, and thyme, cooking until softened, 5 min. Stir in flour and cook, stirring, 1 min.
Gradually stir in chicken broth and white wine, and add in chicken, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer over medium, stir, cook 10 min.
Continue cooking until the chicken is no longer pink and the mixture is thickening.
Roll out pie crust into an 11-in. circle on a lightly floured surface. Poke holes with a fork.
Place pastry over cast iron pan, brush with 1 Tbsp melted butter and put the entire cast iron pan into the oven.
Bake until golden brown, 10 to 15 min.

    Looks good. Have a question about wine. Seen wine come in smaller type bottles. What is an acceptable one to use for this recipe? I don't drink wine but wanted to try this recipe as it is written. No substitutions with chicken broth etc.

    I don't want to spend 10$ for a bottle of wine something that is not the main ingredient in a recipe. Can you help?

      In the vinegar section of your favorite store they should have cooking sherry, and cooking wines. They are usually around $5, add the flavor needed and are more shelf stable. FYI.

    How do you roll a frozen pie crust?

      Sorry, I should have noted that the pie crust should be room temperature. I purchased it frozen and let it defrost before rolling it out. I have updated the instructions.
