Kim’s Chicken Pot Pie – Harmony Cellars

By Erin Martin, Marketing Director at Harmony Cellars

Wine Pairing: Harmony Cellars Chardonnay

This from-scratch recipe remains a family favorite–especially loved by Kim’s boys (now grown). Enjoy this meal with a glass of Harmony Cellars’ big, buttery Chardonnay.
*Turkey can be used in place of chicken, so this is an excellent recipe for post-Thanksgiving.


1/3 cup margarine or butter

1/3 cup all-purpose flour

1/3 cup chopped red onion

1/2 teaspoon garlic salt

1/2 teaspoon of pepper

1 1/4 cups chicken or turkey broth

1/2 cup Harmony Cellars Chardonnay

2/3 cup milk

2 cups cut-up cooked chicken or turkey

1 package frozen peas

Celery Seed Pastry (recipe below)


Melt margarine or butter over low heat. Blend in flour, onion, garlic salt, and pepper. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly until mixture is smooth and bubbly; remove from heat. Stir in broth, milk, and wine. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Boil and stir 1 minute. Stir in chicken or turkey and frozen peas; reserve.

Prepare Celery Seed Pastry. Roll 2/3 of pastry into a 13-inch square on a lightly floured board. Ease pastry into a square pan, 9x9x2 inches; pour chicken filling into pastry-lined pan. Roll remaining dough into 11-inch square; place overfilling. Roll edges under; flute. Cut slits in the center to allow steam to escape. Cook uncovered at 425° over until crust is brown, 30-35 minutes. Serve with a Harmony Cellars Chardonnay. Serves 6.

Celery Seed Pastry 2/3 cup + 2 tablespoons shortening 2 cups all-purpose flour 3 teaspoons celery seed 1 teaspoon salt 4-5 tablespoons water Cut shortening into flour, celery seed, and salt until particles are the size of small peas. Sprinkle in water, 1 tablespoon at a time, tossing with fork until all flour is moistened and pastry does not stick to the side of the bowl (1-2 teaspoons of water can be added, if necessary). Gather pastry into a ball.
