Chicken Pot Pie

I had a craving today for chicken pot pie, I have never made chicken pot pie but I decided to give it a try.

2 medium red potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch pieces

2 medium carrots, cut into small cubes

bag of frozen corn

1/4 cup butter, cubed

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

2 cups chicken stock

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

2 cups cubed cooked chicken

1 small onion, chopped

Pastry for single-crust pie 

To cook the chicken
I put 2 chicken breast on to boil 

I then cut up the carrots and potatoes and put them on the stove to cook just long enough to soften.

I then cut up the onions

and sautéed them with garlic powder, pepper and salt to taste.

while I was waiting for that the chicken was done so I cut it up into bit size pieces and set it aside.

When the onions were done I added the chicken stock and mixed in 1/4 cup of flour to thicken.

after it has thickened I added the carrots and potatoes.

they didn't look like enough so I added some frozen corn 

and the chicken

and mixed it all in.

I made a homemade crust but didn't take any pictures of that so here it is. I haven't made a crust in a long time but I think it looks pretty good, don't you?

I filled the pie crust with the filling

and put the top on.

here it is all ready for the oven. I think it looks so good.
Cover it with foil for the first 30 minutes.
Bake at 425° for 30 minutes. 

here it is after 30 mins
Reduce heat to 375°; remove foil. Bake 55-60 minutes longer or until golden brown. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting.

All done!

Mmmmm Yummy!
