Fennel & Chicken Pot Pie
Servings: 4
Prep time: 30

There’s really nothing more comforting than a chicken pot pie. We already have a delicious traditional pot pie on the site, but there’s always room for more. With fennel, celeriac, and potato, this Fennel & Chicken Pot Pie is the perfect stick to your ribs meal, and it’s also comforting and easy on your digestion.

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a large sauté pan heat olive oil. Brown chicken in pan, about 4 minutes. It need not be fully cooked yet.
  3. Add potatoes and celeriac and cook 3 minutes, stirring often.  Next add fennel and onion and  cook until vegetables begin to soften and become translucent.
  4. Add milk to the chicken and vegetable mixture. Sprinkle in flour. Stir until flour is well incorporated and slowly simmer to thicken, the sauce should stick to the back of a wooden spoon.
  5. Roll crust to a thickness of ¼ inch and line a medium sized baking dish, reserving a piece of crust large enough to cover the top of the pie. Dock the crust with a fork and blind bake for 15 minutes.
  6. Add the chicken and vegetable mixture to the par-baked crust and top with the other sheet of crust, removing the excess. Cut slits in top crust to allow steam to escape.
  7. Bake pie for 30 minutes, until crust is golden. Let cool for 10 minutes and serve

  1. I love this! I scoop the mixture into ramekins and only put the pastry on the top, as in Australia that’s what a “pot pie “ is! I love that I can enjoy the subtle fennel flavour, and if the kids want to pile tomato sauce (ketchup) on top, well that’s ok too since this recipe has no salt etc.
