  • In the same pan, add butter, onion and celery and heat until onions are translucent, about 5 minutes.

  • Whisk constantly until boiling and let boil for 2 minutes or until mixture becomes thick.
  • Remove from heat and stir in potatoes and carrots, chicken, peas and corn.

  • Bake, uncovered for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown on top

Notes

I make homemade crust in my food processor, that's why the edges never look amazing! But, you can easily buy pre-made pastry crust. Put aluminum foil under your pan in the oven. Mine always runs over!
