I have made this recipe as written once before and it was absolutely delicious! This time I made a few changes to our taste and my Husband has declared it a member of my recipe hall of fame! I started by boiling the veggies and chicken with chicken broth, as recommended by many reviewers. I increased the onion to 1/2 cup chopped, as I love a good, strong onion flavor. I also mixed the spices in with the flour before adding to the butter, this is for a more uniform taste. I increased the celery seed to 1/2 tsp. and the pepper to 1/2 tsp. as well. I also increased the chicken broth to 2 cups to create a saucier base. I allowed the chicken broth mixture to thicken before adding heavy cream instead of milk (I used 1/3 cup heavy cream instead of 2/3 cup milk). This created a deliciously creamy and thick sauce with a lot of flavor! Once the cream was mixed in, I only brought the mixture up to temperature to avoid curdling. I then mixed the chicken and veggies in, poured into a pie plate and topped with a homemade pie crust. I omitted the bottom crust because I figured with the rich sauce it just wouldn't be necessary. My Husband did not miss the crust and we saved a few calories (which makes up for the cream, I suppose ;)Hahah!. I baked until browned and served hot. Delicious and an excellent comfort food classic!
