How to Make the Chicken Pot Pie Recipe

In a large nonstick skillet, melt butter. Then add the onion and fresh herbs of parsley and thyme; cook until the onion is softened; 2 to 3 minutes. Add the celery and continue cooking for 2 minutes more, or until it is softening.

Add the frozen vegetables, chicken stock, and salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to maintain a simmer and cook for 5 minutes. Add the turkey or chicken.

While the pot pie filling is cooking, combine 1/4 cup of water with the cornstarch and stir to dissolve. Stir the cornstarch into the filling mixture and cook until thickened. Remove from the heat and portion into 4 individual baking dishes. Set aside to cool while making the pastry.
