Chicken Pot Pie With Vegetables

Recipe for Chicken Pot Pie With Vegetables
Becky Luigart-Stayner

Ingredients

1 3-pound chicken, cut up
1 bay leaf
1 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 cups chopped carrots
5 small onions, quartered
1 cup fresh or frozen peas
1 cup chopped fresh mushrooms
1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
salt and pepper to taste
1/3 cup flour
1/2 cup milk
pastry for a single-crust 9-inch pie
1 egg yolk, beaten with 1 tablespoon water

Instructions

Place chicken, bay leaf, salt, and 2 cups water in a 4-quart Dutch oven. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 1 hour or until chicken is tender. Strain broth, discard bay leaf, and return to Dutch oven. Cool chicken, remove meat, and cut into large chunks; set aside. Add carrots and onions to broth and cook, covered, until tender. Drain broth, add enough water to make 2-½ cups liquid, and return to Dutch oven. Stir in peas, mushrooms, seasonings, and chicken. Combine flour and milk and mix until smooth. Stir flour mixture into broth and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture boils and thickens. Pour hot mixture into 2-quart casserole.

Roll out pastry to fit top of casserole. Cut slits in top. Place crust over chicken mixture and trim edge, leaving enough to form a ridge. Flute edge and brush with egg wash. Bake at 400 degrees F for 30 to 35 minutes, until crust is golden and filling is bubbly.

Chicken Pot Pie

Would it be possible to line the casserole first with a savory French style pastry, prick it all over with a fork, then chill for 30 mins before blind baking it at 375 for 20-30 mins. You could still be working on the filling and then allow the pre-baked bottom crust to cool to room, along with the cooked filling. You could easily then add the same type of pastry for the topping. It would adhere perfectly with a cooked and cooled filling, and would then bake for the suggested time for a golden top pastry and bubbling hot filling. This is how I do it and I think people appreciate a bottom crisp, flaky pastry. Cheers, Mark
