Dim Sum Sunday ~ Pot Pies

Today marks the second anniversary of Dim Sum Sundays over at The Karmic Kitchen.


In the very first DSS, Shamy and Java Junkie went with a pot pie theme. So in honor of that, we bring you once again yummy wonderful pot pies.

Chicken pot pie with vegetables.

1 pound package of chicken breast

1 cup frozen onions (I use fresh)

1 cup thinly sliced carrots

1/3 cup thinly sliced celery

1 1/2 cups frozen peas

1 14 1/2 once can of chicken broth

3/4 cup of milk

1/3 cup unsifted all purpose flour

3/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

15 ounce package of refrigerated pie crust

In large saucepan saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat. Add chicken and cook 2 minutes. And onions; saute' until chicken has cooked through and onions are slightly brown. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the chicken and onions to a plate and set the mixture aside.

Add the carrots and celery to the saucepan; saute' vegetables until slightly softened-about 5 minutes. Stir in the peas and chicken broth. Bring mixture to a boil;reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 5 minutes.

Heat the oven to 425. In a two cup liquid measure, stir together milk , flour, salt, poultry seasoning, and pepper. Slowly whisk milk mixture into the saucepan. Stir until thickened. Stir in reserved chicken and onions.

Spoon chicken and vegetable mixture into a 9 inch round baking dish or cast iron skillet. Top with pie crust and cut slits to allow steam to escape. Bake until crust is golden and filling is bubbly- about 20-25 minutes.

For more DSS fun head on over to Shamys at The Karmic Kitchen.

Look AWAY Baby Shamy!!!!

Looks absolutey delicious and you know I love that least until the pups get ahold of it

Thank you so much for being a big part of DSS. It has been a pleasure watching your family (ALL of your family) join in for the bounty that is home cooking.

Baby Shamy going through a bit of an awkward phase yes?

Lovely pot pie, Dani! Gorgeous crust! Thanks for the new photo of Baby Shamy, and Happy DSS Anniversary!

You didn't say if your daughter liked it but I suspect she did. I told Making Space that kids will eat anything you put in a pie. Were any of the vegetables from the garden?

The crust looks outstanding. I used a packaged pizza crust and the kids really liked that. A little chewier but more flavor. I would have liked to have seen yours on a plate but I'll use my imagination.

Happy DSS!

Looks yummy! So glad the little poultry babe escaped the pot pie unharmed LOL!

Did Baby Shamy avert her eyes?!

Dani said...

Shamy, it's been a wonderful two years. Thank you for all the beautiful food photos that you've taken and shared with us. Here's hoping for lots more cooking fun in the future!

Yeah, just a little bit awkward. ;) Soon she's gonna be lookin' all kinds of funny when the new feathers start coming in.

Eggy, happy DSS to you too friend! It's been great getting to know you.

Buzz, I didn't even think about plating it. Dang!
Sad to say that Elizabeth didn't eat it. She's back down again with a sore throat and fever.

I went with store bought veggies for this.
I still have a month or so more to go on my garden carrots.

Erin, I only threaten to cook The Girlz when they've been up to no good. ;)

Froggy, hehehe. Yes! Doesn't help that her tank is in the kitchen either.


Ah, baby Shamy! So innocent. So adorable. So...delicious.Run Shamy! Run for your life!
