How to Make a Pheasant Pot Pie

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat, adding in the fresh thyme and sage. Add the pheasant breasts to the skillet and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until cooked through. Remove from skillet, shred, and set aside—drain skillet of excess oil.
  3. Place the skillet back over medium heat and add the unsalted butter and diced onions and brown for about 3 minutes. Stir in the flour and brown for another 1-2 minutes.
  4. Whisk in the broth and milk, working to eliminate any large lumps. Bring to a rolling boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and let simmer. Add in the chopped carrots, celery, broccoli, dried sage, and dried thyme. Simmer for 10-15 minutes or until thickened, and the vegetables start to soften.
