Ingredients

1 pound(s) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves cubed
1 (16 ounce) bag frozen carrots and peas mixed (Publix usually does not carry - Winn-Dixie does)
1/2 cup(s) sliced celery
1/3 cup(s) butter
1/3 cup(s) chopped onion
1/3 cup(s) all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
1/4 teaspoon(s) black pepper
1/4 teaspoon(s) celery seed
32 ounce carton chicken broth for boiling(reserve 1 3/4 cups chicken broth for sauce)
2/3 cup(s) milk
1/3 cup(s) corn
1/3 cup(s) canned diced potatoes
2 (9 inch) unbaked pie crusts (I buy Pillsbury - two come in the package)

Put one of the pie crusts in the pie dish and bake the bottom crust before filling the pie so it isn’t soggy. Bake for 5-6 minutes at 425 degrees.

In a pot, combine the raw chicken, carrots, peas, and celery. Add the carton of chicken broth to cover and boil for 15 minutes. Remove from heat, drain (reserving 1 3/4 cup chicken broth for filling) and set aside.

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 broth and milk. Simmer over medium-low heat until thick. Remove from heat and combine with the chicken, carrots, peas, and celery mixture.  Add corn & potatoes.  Here you can add more chicken broth if you like depending how runny you want your filling.
Place the chicken filling in bottom crust. Cover with top crust, seal edges, and cut away excess dough. Make several small slits in the top to allow steam to escape.
Bake in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until pastry is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Cool for 10 minutes before serving.
