Earlier this month, I shared with you 15 tips on saving money on your food bill.
One of those ways, is to eat at home as much as possible.
One of our family favorites is homemade chicken pot pie
It costs around $3 to make and provides around 6 servings for our family making it about 50 cents a serving.
You will need:
1/3 cup butter
1/3 cup chopped onion (I leave this out since my picky kids won't eat it)
1/3 cup of all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp pepper
14 ounces of homemade chicken broth (or 1 can)
1/2 cup milk
2 1/2 cups shredded chicken (you can use turkey too-I used leftovers I had in the freezer)
1 bag of frozen mixed vegetables (18 ounces)
Heat over to 425 degrees.
In a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat.
Add onion (or not), cook for 2 minutes, stirring frequently
Stir in flour, salt and pepper until well blended.
Next, stir in broth and milk
Your broth mixture is done when it thickens and gets bubbly.
Stir in chicken, and mixed vegetables
Remove the saucepan and spoon into your crust filled pan
Top with your second crust and seal the edges.
Cut slits in your top crust
Bake for 30-40 minutes until the crust is golden brown.
Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
