I was thinking about what what recipe to share with you, and thought it would be fun to simply Google "the most delicious recipe in the world" and see what came up. A link for Real Simple was the first search result, so I clicked on the link, and it took me to a list of the top 25 recipes their readers enjoy. This is the first recipe within that list.
Needless to say, I was pretty surprised that the number one recipe is Chicken and Vegetable Pot Pie. I definitely thought something with chocolate would have come up!
But here we are, and since I happen to be a fan of pot pie, and committed to sharing Google's result for the most delicious recipe in the world - here's your next meal idea!
Chicken and Vegetable Pot Pie
- 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 onions, chopped
- 4 carrots, diced
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup dry white wine
- 2 cups 1 percent milk
- 1 10-ounce package frozen peas
- 1 tablespoon fresh thyme
- kosher salt and black pepper
- 1 9-inch store-bought piecrust (thawed, if frozen)
- Heat oven to 400° F. Cook the chicken in a pot of simmering water until cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes; let cool, then shred.
- Meanwhile, heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the onions and carrots and cook, stirring, until they begin to soften, 6 to 8 minutes (do not let them darken). Sprinkle the flour over the vegetables and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.
- Add the wine and cook until evaporated, about 5 minutes. Add the milk and simmer until the sauce thickens, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the chicken, peas, thyme, ¾ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Transfer to a shallow 1½ - to 2-quart baking dish.
- Lay the crust on top, pressing to seal. Cut several vents in the crust. Place the pot pie on a baking sheet and bake until bubbling and the crust is golden, 30 to 35 minutes.
