    1. Preheat oven to 220 degrees C.
    2. In a saucepan, combine chicken, carrots, peas and celery. Add water barely to cover (not too much) and boil for 15 minutes. Remove from heat, drain and set aside.
    3. In the saucepan over medium heat, cook onions in butter until soft and translucent. Stir in flour, salt, pepper and celery seed. Slowly stir in chicken stock and milk. Simmer over medium-low heat until thick. Remove from heat and set aside.
    4. Place one of the puff pastry sheets into 23cm pie dish and press it in. Pour hot liquid mixture over. Cover with the top piece of pastry, seal edges and cut away excess dough. Make several small slits in the top to allow steam to escape and crimp the edges and brush with milk if desired.
    5. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until pastry is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Cool for 10 minutes before serving.

    Was easy and delicious!Thanks!  -  11 Jul 2014


    Like everyone else, I boiled the chicken & veggies in stock. I added extra seasoning to the sauce and did 1 1/2 times the recipes, for a while I thought I had too much sauce but will double it next time.. Deep dish, 190 for 40mins. Best chicken pie I have ever eaten.  -  05 Jul 2017


    The first time I made this I followed the recipe to the letter and thought it tasted great but was too dry. So I doubled the sauce, used a deep dish pie plate, reduced the temp to 375 & baked for 45 minutes. It was perfectly moist without being runny, and the pie shells were perfectly done. Absolutely fabulous! Goes without saying it is a keeper!  -  14 Apr 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
