Grandma’s Chicken Pot Pie (WDW 50's Prime Time Café')
Yield: 1 pie
 
Ingredients:
2 cups chicken tenderloins, uncooked
1 cup broccoli, tops only
1/2 cup carrot, cubed
1/2 cup celery, cubed
1/4 cup leek, diced
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons flour
3 cups milk or 3 cups half-and-half
1 cup parmesan cheese, grated
2 chicken bouillon cubes
1 pastry for double-crust pie
1 egg, beaten

Don't forget to ask for a TV table on your next visit to 50s Prime Time Cafe!

Method:

1.Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2. In boiling salted water, simmer chicken tenderloins, broccoli, carrots, celery, and leeks until chicken is fully cooked and vegetables are tender, but still firm (about 15 minutes).

3. Drain well and set aside.

4. In a medium sized skillet, melt butter and add flour.

5. Cook for 5 minutes and add milk or half-and-half. Bring to a boil and simmer until thickened (about 10 minutes).

6. Dissolve chicken bouillon cubes in 1/4 cup warm water and add to sauce. Blend in grated Parmesan cheese and remove from heat.

7. Add cooked chicken and vegetables and mix well.

8. Pour mixture into a deep-dish pie plate and cover with pie dough. Seal edges well and brush top with beaten egg.

9. Bake until crust is golden brown and the filling is hot (about 45 to 50 minutes). Brushing a little milk on the top of the pie dough before baking will give the crust a delightful color.

For a new twist we did a noodle casserole instead. Same process as the pot pie but cooked 16 oz. bag of noodles Al dente. The noodles were added in at the same time as the veggies and chicken. Then we greased a dish dumped it in and topped with about 1 cup of mozzarella and parmesan cheese
 


 
Sorry, it was devoured before I could get a untouched photo!
 

My Daughter loves this so much more than the pie version! Hubby and I like them equally. But this has replaced our traditional Mushroom soup chicken casserole!

 
 

 
A side note: I am in love with my Temp-tations bake ware!
