How To Make Pot Pie Filling
Add two tablespoons of butter to a large skillet on medium high heat. Cook chicken and onion in butter until chicken is browned and the onion is tender.
Stir in celery, mixed vegetables, mushroom (optional), diced potato, chicken broth, white wine, parsley, pepper and bay leaf.
Bring ingredients in the skillet to a boil. Cover and reduce heat.
Simmer 15 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
Discard the bay leaf.
Mix cornstarch and 2 tablespoons of cold water. Stir until smooth.
Now add the water & cornstarch to the ingredients in the skillet. Bring to a boil over medium heat and stir constantly.
Remove from heat and stir in the undiluted soup, cheese and sour cream.
Roll half of pot pie pastry and fit into an ungreased pie pan or casserole dish.
Spoon chicken mixture into the dish.
Place remaining pastry over chicken mixture. Trim edges of pie pastry, seal and crimp edges. Cut slits into top of pastry .
Combine the egg yolk and 1 tablespoon milk and lightly brush over pastry top.
Protect the edges of pastry with aluminum foil to prevent singing the pot pie pastry edges.
Bake at 400 degrees for 35 minutes or until golden brown.
Substitutions For White Wine
Apple juice or grape juice can be substituted for the white wine. Our friends at The Kitchen have provided a list of substitutes for white wine depending upon the use of the white wine.Apple cider vinegar is also a substitute for white wine and will lend a slight kick to the flavor.White wine substitutes to deglaze a pan may be different than a substitute as an ingredient; I usually use chicken broth for both.
