Grandma’s Chicken Pot Pie

Yield: 1 pie

2 cups chicken tenderloins, uncooked
1 cup broccoli, tops only
1/2 cup carrot, cubed
1/2 cup celery, cubed
1/4 cup leek, diced
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons flour
3 cups milk or 3 cups half-and-half
1 cup parmesan cheese, grated
2 chicken bouillon cubes
1 pastry for double-crust pie
1 egg, beaten

Don't forget to ask for a TV table on your next visit to 50s Prime Time Cafe!


1.Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2.In boiling salted water, simmer chicken tenderloins, broccoli, carrots, celery, and leeks until chicken is fully cooked and vegetables are tender, but still firm (about 15 minutes).

3. Drain well and set aside.

4. In a medium sized skillet, melt butter and add flour.

5. Cook for 5 minutes and add milk or half-and-half. Bring to a boil and simmer until thickened (about 10 minutes).

6. Dissolve chicken bouillon cubes in 1/4 cup warm water and add to sauce. Blend in grated Parmesan cheese and remove from heat.

7. Add cooked chicken and vegetables and mix well.

8. Pour mixture into a deep-dish pie plate and cover with pie dough. Seal edges well and brush top with beaten egg.

9. Bake until crust is golden brown and the filling is hot (about 45 to 50 minutes). Brushing a little milk on the top of the pie dough before baking will give the crust a delightful color.

    We like chicken pot pie, AJ, so this is definitely a recipe that I’ll be trying out some time. Thanks for bringing it to us! We love the 50’s Prime Time :) (although I usually get their fried chicken).

    My daughter had this on our last visit (she was the girl with the nose ring from the “favorite moments” link. Good times!). The crust seemed more like a puff pastry than traditional pie crust. An easier way to go might be just baking off a few squares of puff pastry to top off each serving. I like easy!

    I have been following your site for some time now. You do an awesome job! I had taken your pointers with us to WDW and we had an amazing time and loved every meal! I made sure to have this pot pie after one of your posts about it. I have started a family recipe share and made this recipe tonight. My entire family raved about Grandma’s Pot Pie and it is no on our rotation! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR POSTING THIS! Also I bought the book from amazon can’t wait to get it!

    Hi Brooke – is there any way you can publish the most recent recipe for the chicken pot pie? My daughter was at Disney World with her marching band performing in the parade and ate at 50’s Prime Time Cafe and had the chicken pot pie. She loved it and I would like to get the recipe so I can make it for her.
