A true comfort food! The kind of recipe that warms your heart and soul. And for me, chicken pie ... is a comforting dish and this time, we'll add 1/2 cup of cream 35%, it will be even better!

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup diced onion
  • 2 carrots, sliced (about 1 cup)

Preparation

  1. In a large frying pan, melt the butter and add the onions, carrots, celery and garlic. Cook until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally.
