This is the most amazing Chicken Pie I've ever made! Years ago I bought a cookbook and the recipe was in it. Since then I have tweaked the recipe to fit out family.
The original recipe is from Disney's Gourmet Cookbook which apparently is hard to come by now. It's called Disney's 50's Prime Time Cafe Chicken Pot Pie.
(this recipe makes 2 pies)
2 Cups chicken tenderloins, uncooked
1 Cup broccoli, tops only
1/2 Cup Carrots, cubed
1/2 Cup Celery, cubed
1/4 Cup Whole Kernal Corn
1/4 Cup Green Sweet Peas
1/4 Cup Leeks, diced
3 Tbsp. Butter
3 Tbsp. Flour
3 Cup heavy cream (can substitute half and half)
1 Cup Parmesan Cheese, grated
2 Chicken Bouillon Cubes
4 deep dish pie crust
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In boiling salted water, simmer chicken, broccoli, carrots, celery, corn, peas and leeks until chicken is fully cooked and vegetables are tender, but still firm (about 10 minutes). Drain well and set aside.
In medium skillet, melt butter and add flour. Cook for 5 minutes and add cream. Bring to a boil and simmer until thickened (about 5 minutes). Dissolve chicken bouillon cubes in 1/4 Cup water and add to sauce. Blend in grated Parmesan and remove from heat. Add cooked chicken and vegetables and mix well. Pour mixture into 2 deep dish pie crust and cover with another pie crust. Seal edges well and brush with beaten egg. Bake until crust is golden brown and the filling is hot (about 45 minutes).
Let cool for 10 minutes before cutting. Enjoy!
