Chicken Pot Pie: The Perfect Post-Zombie Attack Meal

BreadbowlI don’t know what makes this such a good meal to serve after a zombie attack.  Maybe because each person gets their own pie, making it personal and special.  Maybe we all just need something warm and comforting.  I can’t say for sure, all I know is that it works.

Here’s my recipe for all-purpose, pick-you-up chicken pot pie.  This recipe is easy to size up or down.

Serves 6

Filling Ingredients:

  1. 1 pound chicken (mix of thigh and breast meat, deboned and chopped)
  2. ½ cup of butter
  3. 4 whole carrots, diced
  4. 2 celery stalks, diced
  5. 2 cups potatoes, diced
  6. 1 onion, peeled and diced small
  7. 2 cloves garlic, minced
  8. ½ cup peas
  9. 2 ¾ cups chicken stock
  10. 1 ½ cups milk
  11. ½ cup flour
  12. Salt (to taste)
  13. Black Pepper (to taste)
  14. 1 teaspoon Thyme
  15. Chili pepper flakes
  16. Cooking oil
  • Season the chicken with a bit of salt and pepper.
  • Cook the chicken in a skillet with 2 teaspoons oil.  Set aside.
  • Steam the potatoes and carrots.  Set aside.
  • Heat chicken stock in a small pot.
  • Sauté onions and garlic with 1-2 tablespoons butter until translucent.
  • Add celery as well as the rest of the butter and cook until butter is melted.
  • Add flour and stir until thickened.
  • Add hot chicken stock.  Bring to a boil then lower heat.
  • Add milk and let simmer for 10-15 minutes until it reaches a creamy consistency.
  • Add potatoes, carrots, peas, chicken, and seasoning.  Let cook for another 5 minutes and season to taste.

To construct the pies:

Bake small loaves of French bread.  You will want a thick crust so make sure to set a pan of water under the loaves while they are baking.  Once cooled, scoop the insides of the loaves out and fill with chicken mixture.  Serve warm.

Enjoy!

Very truly,
