Chicken Pot Pie Recipe
A rolling pin
A round baking pan
Round baking dish
- Pie crust dough or biscuit-like dough
- Chicken bouillon cubes or chicken seasoning mix to taste
- Green pepper
- Chicken meat for chicken pot pie filling
- Gravy mix to add flavors such as mushroom or chicken
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 Celsius).
Roll out pie crust dough into thin sheets using a rolling pin.
Cut dough into 4 smaller squares of approximately 3 inches x 3 inches in size, each depending on the size of the round baking pan being used.
Press down one square gently onto the bottom of a round baking dish (9 inches in diameter).
Using a fork, prick dough underneath to allow the crust to rise when baked—Bake for 8 minutes in the oven. Remove from the oven and set aside after removing the half-baked bottom crust from the baking dish.
Meanwhile, prepare chicken pot pie filling (option 1) by dissolving chicken bouillon cubes or chicken seasoning mix with chicken broth (refer to preparation section under chicken pot pie recipe - option 1 above.)
Add potatoes and carrots, then boil until tender, then add chicken meat that has been cut into smaller portions before adding vegetables. Add onion, garlic, and green pepper (chopped) while boiling together with chicken meat and seasonings.
Boil until chicken is cooked thoroughly for at least 30 minutes, depending on the size of chicken pieces used. Add gravy mix to chicken pot pie filling (option 2) if desired or chicken bouillon cubes or chicken seasoning mix for chicken broth.
Remove chicken pot pie filling from the stove and let it cool for at least 10 minutes before adding half-baked bottom crust on top.
Use the second square of dough to cover chicken pot pie filling by cutting 3 small round holes on top of the dough so steam can escape when baking in the oven.
Place chicken pot pie dish back inside the oven and bake for 30 minutes until golden brown.
Remove it from the oven and serve it hot. A sumptuous meal for the whole family!
