Chicken Pot Pie

Hmmm - I thought I posted this but apparently I didn't!  This is our chicken pot pie recipe.  It's SOOO popular around here and I'll make it whenever I make a roast chicken or else I'll pop two chicken breast halves in some boiling water and cook that up instead.  This is also my go-to recipe to bring to another family for illness or death or some other need in their lives.  I can't wait - it's the ultimate comfort food!

Chicken Pot Pie

1/3 c. butter or margarine
1/3 c. flour
2/3 c. chopped onion
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. celery seed
1 3/4 cups chicken broth
2/3 cup milk
2+ cups cut up cooked chicken
2+ cups frozen peas and carrots
1 double pie crust (I use Pillsbury)

Heat oven to 425 degrees. Melt butter over low heat in saucepan. Blend in flour, onion and seasoning. Cook, stirring, until mixture is bubbly. Remove from heat. Stir in chicken broth and milk. Heat to boiling; stirring constantly. Boil and stir one minute. Gently stir in chicken and frozen vegetables. Pour into pie crust. Top with other pie crust, flute and slit. Bake 30-35 minutes or until golden brown.
