French-style chicken pie, also known as chicken pot pie, is a comforting and classic dish that is perfect for a cozy family dinner.
The filling is made with tender chunks of chicken, sautéed with onions, carrots, and celery, then simmered in a creamy and flavorful sauce made with chicken broth, cream, and a touch of white wine. The filling is then poured into a deep-dish pie crust, and topped with a second layer of pie crust or puff pastry, creating a crispy and golden crust on top. The pie is then baked until the filling is hot and bubbly and the crust is golden brown.
This dish is perfect for using up leftover chicken or for making in advance and reheating for a quick and easy weeknight dinner.
It is also easy to customize by adding your favorite vegetables or herbs to the filling, creating a dish that is uniquely yours.
