Equipment

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter 1/2 stick
  • 1/2 onion diced
  • 2 cups frozen mixed vegetables the recipe in the book uses fresh  and I may do that next time, but I actually had some cooked frozen mixed vegetables to use.
  • 2 tablespoons of minced garlic
  • 2 pound of uncooked boneless chicken breast cut in 1 inch pieces.   I have my butcher cut this for me as I had to cut chicken.  It also cuts probably 5 minutes off the prep time.
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of fresh thyme minced. (You can substitute dried thyme, but be careful as the ratio of fresh to dried is about 2/3 to 1.  So only about 1 teaspoon if dried.)
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh Italian parsley minced.  (I had this one hand from the COST meatballs I made the night before.  Those were amazing and recipe is forthcoming.)
  • 2 teaspoons of kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour.   When measuring flour always use a measuring cup scooped into the flour to shake into another.  AS a general rule an “packed” measuring cup of flour is typically more then you need.  Shake into another measuring cup actually is similar to the sifting of flour our grandmothers did and keeps recipes from getting to doughy or heavy.
  • 1 store bought pie crust - to be really simple

Instructions

  • Select Sear/Sauté on the Ninja Foodi and set to MD:HI.  Select start to allow the Ninja Foodi to preheat for 5 minutes
  • Add butter to the pot and allow it to melt.  Add onion, garlic and if using fresh carrots the diced carrots.   Sauté for about 3 minutes until softened.
  • Add chicken and broth to the pot.  Close with the sealed pressure cooker lid and select Pressure, set to High for 5 minutes.  Select Start. (If using frozen mixed vegetables add these here.)

  • When cooking is complete, quick release the pressure and remove the lid.
  • Select Sear/sauté and set to MD:HI.  Select start  to begin.  Add all remaining ingredients except the pie crust to the pot.  (If using leftover already cooked vegetables, add these here.) Whisk or stir in the flour well and cook for about 3 minutes until he sauce is thick and bubbling.
    Chicken pot pie filling
  • Lay the pie crust across the filling mix and fold edges in as necessary.  Make a cut in the middle of the pie crust to allow for the steam to release.
