Reader's Recipe: Chicken Pot Pie for the Whole Family

My friend Amy told me about this recipe last week, and I couldn't wait for her to send it to me! Chicken pot pie is the ultimate comfort food. It's one of those meals that just makes you feel like you've been wrapped in a warm blanket after eating it (at least that's how I feel ha!). You can puree this for little one's 7+ months, or serve as is for older babies eating finger foods. This recipe is doubled for leftovers, so you can enjoy pot pies the next day too!

Here's what you need:
1 small onion chopped
2 medium carrots
1/2 cup of diced and peeled potato
1/2 cup of diced and peeled sweet potato (optional)
1/4 cup of celery
1/4 cup of butter, cubed
1/3 cup of all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon of dried parsley flakes
1/4 teaspoon of dried rosemary, crushed
1/4 teaspoon of rubbed sage
1 cup of milk
1 cup of chicken broth
2 cups of cubed cooked turkey
1/2 cup of frozen peas
1 sheet of refrigerated pie pastry

In large saucepan, saute onion, carrot, potatoes, and celery in butter until tender. Add flour and seasonings until blended; gradually add in milk and broth. bring to a boil. cook and stir for 2 min or until it thickens. Stir in turkey and peas; divide mixture among 4 ungreased 5 inch pie pans OR use large greased ramekins.

Divide pastry into quarters. On lightly floured surface, roll each quarter into 6 inch circle and place over filling. Trim, seal and flute edges. Cut slits to vent.

Bake at 375 for 18-22 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand 10 min before serving.
