Chicken Pot Pie

This recipe is a personal favorite of mine. It is easy and very filling!

3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
2-3 potatoes but into cubes
carrots chopped up
1 box pie crusts (I normally would make my own crusts but I didn't have time today)
chicken boullion cubes

Cut the chicken into cubes and cook in a skillet until white on the outside

Boil the carrots and potatoes until soft (I boil them together, make it easier). When they are done make sure you save the water for the gravy.

Microwave 2 cups of water until steaming and dissolve 6-7 boullion cubes. 

In a casserole pan place one pie crust in the bottom 

Next step is to make the gravy. pour a 1/4 oil into a skillet and then add 1/2 cup to make a roux. whisk until combined. 

Next step is to add all the boullion mixture into the roux. Add 1 cup of the vegetable water. Keep stirring until the gravy is thick. 

You can add salt and pepper to taste.

Mix the gravy with the chicken and vegetables and pour in the dish.

Put the 2nd pie crust on top and poke a few holes into the top for air to escape while baking. Baking for about 35-40 minutes at 375 or until the top is brown and is bubbling.

Ready to eat!
