  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter divided
  • 1 large carrot diced
  • 2 rib celery (short stalks) diced
  • 1 medium yellow onion diced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 1/2 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups low-sodium chicken broth or stock
  • cups whole milk
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts or about 2 to 3 cups cooked and chopped
  • 3/4 cup frozen peas
  • 3/4 cup frozen corn
  • 2 medium cooked potatoes diced (roughly about 2 cups)
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt more or less to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoons black pepper more or less to taste
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1 recipe homemade pie crust
  • 8 (12 ounce) ramekins


  • Preheat your oven to 375° and place 8 ramekins onto a rimmed metal baking sheet.
  • Melt 3 tablespoons of butter in a large Dutch oven over medium to medium-low heat.
  • Add in the diced carrots, celery and onon with a pinch of salt and cook for 10 to 12 minutes.
  • Now add in the remaining butter and the thyme. Stir and cook for a minute.
  • Next add in the flour, stirring often while it cooks for 2 minutes.
  • Pour in the 3 cups of chicken broth and 1-1/2 cups of whole milk. Let that simmer, stirring occasionally until thickened. About 15 minutes.
  • Once thickened, remove the pot off of the heat and add in the diced cooked chicken, frozen peas, corn and parsley. Stir. Taste and season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Allow this to cool.
  • Meanwhile, evenly divide some of the diced cooked potatoes into each ramekin.
  • Ladle the pot pie filling evenly over the potatoes, dividing it evenly among all the ramekins. Make sure the filling has cooled significanlty before placing the pie dough over top and crimping the edges. Use a sharp knife make slits for ventilation.
  • Brush with an egg wash*, if desired.
  • Slide the sheet pan onto the middle rack of your preheated oven and bake for 30 minutes or until the crust is golden and the filling is bubbling.
  • Remove and let them cool for 10 minutes before serving.


To make an egg wash, simply beat 1 egg with a splash of water.
This can also be made in a casserole dish or skillet as one large pot pie.
