Homemade Chicken Pot Pie

Here's the recipe for the homemade chicken pot pie I made for dinner tonight:

Ingredients

2 chicken breasts, diced.
4 potatoes, peeled and diced.
Large pot of water to boil the chicken and potatoes in
5 slices of bacon, diced
1small onion, diced
1 small bag of frozen mixed peas and carrots
4 pie crusts
cornstarch

Directions:

Take out your ready made pie crusts and let them thaw.  Preheat the oven to 350.

Put the chicken and potatoes in the large pot with enough water to cover it all and about an inch more.  Put it on high temperature, bring to a boil and boil for 20 minutes.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.  In the meantime, using a frying pan, brown and saute the bacon and onions.  When they are thoroughly cooked, put them in the pot with the chicken and potatoes.

Using a 9x12 baking dish, carefully put two of piecrusts in the bottom, poke with fork holes and prebake in the oven for 15 minutes.

When the pot has boiled for 20 minutes, mix cornstarch and water, then slowly stir it in to thicken the water and make homemade gravy to go in the pot pie.  After 2 minutes of boiling, poor all of it into the 9x12 over the first 2 piecrusts, add the frozen peas and carrots and mix gently.  Then put the other 2 pie crusts on top.  Cut a couple of slits into the top for steam to vent, then bake for 20-30 minutes or until the top crust is a lovely brown and the house smells delicious (;
