Homemade Chicken Pie – Getting Organized

Recipe and Menu Planning:

Chicken Pie 

 

The Crock Pot meal I put in at lunch was cooking slower than I expected. It was probably because the pork chops were larger. So I had to put Plan B into action to use leftovers from the refrigerator for our evening meal. I had enough chicken left from our rotisserie chicken to grind up and put into a chicken pie. I had the ingredients to make the crust, and I had cream of chicken soup that I could use as a “chicken gravy.”   There are a few quick helps for cooking from scratch that I use on occasion.

 

To make a pie crust:
(recipe makes two 8″ pie crusts)
2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon salt

2/3 cup all-vegetable shortening or butter

7 to 9 teaspoons of cold water (depends on your altitude and humidity)

 

  • Sift the flour into a bowl
  • Cut shortening into the flour with a pastry cutter
  • Add salt and mix lightly
  • Add cold water
  • Mix by hand until a ball forms
  • Refrigerate for 15 minutes
  • Divide dough in half
  • Roll out one half of the dough on a floured surface
  • Fold in half and then fold in half again to make it in fourths
  • Lay over an 8′ pie pan that has been greased and unfold the crust to cover the pan

 

Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven until golden brown

Prepare a filling to put in the pie

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Today I used chopped chicken and cream of chicken soup as the filling for my pie.

 

Then I rolled out the second crust and covered the filling. I trimmed the excess dough with a knife and made some ventilation holes in the top crust. I baked it in the preheated 375 degree oven until gold brown (approximately 45 minutes).
