Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a large non stick skillet, melt half a stick of butter on medium to low heat. Dice a quarter of an onion and saute until browned, about one to two minutes. Stir in half a cup of all purpose flour. Mix in 1 cup of whole milk and 1 cup of chicken broth into the skillet.

Chop 2 red skinned potatoes, 2 cooked chicken breasts, 3 carrots, and 1 cup of fresh green beans. Cook all ingredients together for another 8-10 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste.

We used a six mini pie tin to make our pot pies. To achieve the circular shape of the dough we used a wide coffee mug. Pressing down on the rolled out pie crust, make 12 circular shapes. Then lay each individual pie crust into the tins. Begin to fill the six tins with the chicken and vegetable filling. With the remaining circular pie crusts, make an ‘x’ shape in the middle so as steam can be released in the baking process. Cover each pot pie and lightly press the sides to create a seal.

Place in the oven and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until a deep golden brown. Let them sit for a minute to cool before serving. We garnished ours with fresh thyme and really enhanced the flavors!

    I gotta say, 2 years later, and these are still one of my favorite fall meals.

    I just have a few adjustments:
    – Mine are vegetarian. I used fake chicken strips that I cube.
    – I use shallow ramekins instead of a tin
    – I use phyllo dough for the tops. They flake up really nicely.

    I’m wondering if anyone has ever tried making folded over hand pies with this recipe.
