Step 1-Gather food you will need to make the pot pies
4 carrots
1 onion
8 potatoes
1 head of broccoli
3 stalks of celery
1 cup Milk
2 cups cheddar cheese
6 cups water
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 tsp parsley
2 chicken cubes
**Clean all vegetables and remove the skins from carrots, potatoes and onion.

Crust

2 cups Flour,

1 stick of butter,

1/4 tsp salt,

2 tsp baking powder,

1/2 cup milk

Step 2: Boiling the Vegetables

Step 2-Boiling the Vegetables

Next, chop celery, onion, carrots, broccoli and potatoes.
*The left overs and scraps will be added to the compost for the chickens and garden.
Place chopped onions in a pot with 6 cups water and 2 chicken broth cubes. Turn stove on high.

Next, place celery, carrots, and potatoes in pan, bring to a boil.

Add Broccoli and stir well. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Step 3: Cooking the Chicken

Step 3- Cooking Chicken
Place 3 large chicken breast in the pan with the vegetables and cover.

Since my chicken was frozen adding it to the pot help defrost it/cook it at the same time. I added Parsley and covered until the chicken was almost cooked thru. I removed the chicken and chopped it into cubes.

Step 4: Casserole Dishes

While the chicken is cooking, shred a block of cheddar cheese and set it to the side.
Poured a cup of milk into the measuring glass and set that to the side as well.

I like to use small casserole dishes for my pot pies, but you can also make this dish in one large casserole dish.
While, the chicken cooks, I add the reminder of the cheese to the bottoms of my pot pie casseroles.

Step 5: Adding Milk & Cheese

Step 4-Adding Milk & Cheese
Before chopping the chicken, add the cup of milk and all the cheese but 1/2 a cup. Stir well, lower heat and add the chopped up chicken to the pan. Cover and let cook about 10 minutes.

Step 6: Filling Casserole Dishes

Once the chicken is cooked, remove from heat and scoop into casserole dishes.

Set the casserole dishes to the side.

Step 8: Baking the Pot Pies

Melt 1-2 tbsp. of butter in bowl to coat the top of the pot pies.

Also cut 2 small slits in the top.
Set on a baking pan and cook at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes

NOTE........I made my pot pies ahead of time and covered with foil then let them sit in the fridge for a few hours before I baked them for dinner.

They turned out GREAT!

This sounds like a really great recipe, but you did not specify what size block of cheddar cheese. I'd really love to try this.
