chicken pot pie

good old fashioned chicken pot pie, but made entirely from ingredients from trader joe’s, my favorite grocery store.

adapted from the cookbook cooking with trader joe.

makes 5-6 servings

  • 2 cups buttermilk pancake mix
  • 2 cups milk
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups chicken breast, chopped into large pieces
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 bag soycatash (from trader joes – or similar product), defrosted
  • salt and pepper

preheat the oven to 350. to make pie crust, add pancake mix, 1 cup milk, and 2 tablespoons of butter to a mixer or food processor. roll out 2/3 for the pie crust bottom and save the other 1/3 for the top crust. of course you can make any sort of savory crust works.

for the filling, saute chicken breasts in a medium pan until they are mostly cooked. in a big saucepan, combine 2 tablespoons of butter and flour. then add 1 cup milk and chicken broth. wait for it to thicken which takes about 10 minutes. add in an entire bag of soycatash and the chicken and season with salt and pepper. then dump it all into the bottom crust, and roll out and cover with the top crust. pinch the sides together, like a traditional pie. and then add those fork marks for some air. bake for about 30 minutes. you’ve got chicken pot pie.
