2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Prep the vegetables

  • Peel and coarsely chop the onion.
  • Scrub or peel the carrots and trim the ends; cut 1 carrot [2 carrots] into ½-inch pieces for the pot pie. Using the large holes of a box grater, coarsely grate the remaining carrot [2 carrots] for the salad.
  • Cut the celery into ½-inch pieces.
  • Cut the mushrooms in half lengthwise; cut any large mushrooms into quarters.


Prep and brown the chicken

  • Cut a small corner from the ground chicken packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.
In a medium [large] sauce pot over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil until hot but not smoking. Add the chicken, season generously with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring to break up the meat, until lightly browned but not yet cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate. Do not clean the pot.


Cook the vegetables; finish the pot pie

In the same pot used for the chicken, if dry, add 1 to 2 tablespoons oil. Warm over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Add the onion, chopped carrot, celery, mushrooms, and thyme, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables start to soften, 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in the mushroom blend and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
Add the chicken and any accumulated juices, vegetable broth, and ¼ cup [½ cup] water and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the liquid has thickened slightly and the chicken is cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. For a more brothy filling, add more water ¼ cup at a time until the desired consistency is reached. When the pot pie is almost done, prepare the salad.


Make the salad

In a medium bowl, stir together the red wine vinegar and 1 to 2 tablespoons oil; season to taste with salt and pepper. Add the mixed greens and grated carrot and toss to coat; season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the chicken pot pie to individual bowls and serve the salad on the side.
