This homey and healthy chicken potpie boasts a creamy, savory sauce you’ll want to lick from the pan. It’s a flavor experience that often relies on several hours of slow cooking, but we’ve sped it up with a few shortcuts that still deliver on flavor satisfaction. For example, refrigerated pie crust dough is used in place of homemade dough. Potpie is a great way to use up leftover chicken or turkey, and that’ll shave a few minutes off your cook time, too. Just skip step 2, add chicken to a warmed Dutch oven, and start the recipe at step 3. Thickening the sauce in the pan before the pie goes into the oven results in a luscious sauce that’s begging for a swipe with crusty bread.
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 1/2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into 1-inch pieces
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
12 ounces assorted mushrooms, such as shiitake and button, sliced
1 cup thinly sliced onion
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup finely chopped carrot
8 ounces green beans, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
2 cups unsalted chicken stock (such as Swanson)
1.1 ounces all-purpose flour (about 1/4 cup)
1 cup frozen green peas
2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1/2 (14.1-ounce) package refrigerated pie dough
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 425°. Coat an 8-cup ceramic oval baking or gratin dish with cooking spray.
Heat a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil to pan; swirl to coat. Sprinkle chicken with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add half of chicken to pan; cook 3 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove chicken from pan. Repeat procedure with remaining chicken.
Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to pan. Add mushrooms, onion, thyme, garlic, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper to pan; cook 12 minutes or until mushrooms are browned, stirring occasionally. Add carrot and green beans; cook 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Combine stock and flour in a bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add stock mixture to pan; bring to a boil, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Cook 3 minutes or until slightly thickened. Stir in chicken, peas, and parsley. Spoon chicken mixture into prepared pan.
Roll dough to an oval large enough to cover the baking dish. Lay dough over filling. Fold edges under, and crimp, if desired. Bake at 425° for 25 minutes or until browned and bubbly.
