Do You Like Chicken Pie?

I am a huge fan of chicken pie. We always had delicious ones when I was a kid. They came from a little shop that made them fresh. You paid so much for the pie and a deposit for the dish and when you returned the dish you got your deposit back. Or like we always did, just got another pie. There is still a dish around here from that place. Oh look, I made a homemade chicken pie in that dish. This is the recipe I used. I didn’t follow it exactly: I used butter instead of margarine and all shortening for the crust, I skipped the broccoli and mushrooms entirely. It was good but I feel like there was something missing, some small flavor absent. I’ll figure it out eventually but this recipe is a great jumping off point for making your own chicken pie. I particularly like the gravy. It’s good, tasty enough to drink from a glass kind of good. I’ll be making this one again!

  1. Looks yummy 🙂 Our usual chicken pie recipe is filled with chicken, bacon, mushrooms, peas and a white sauce. Served with mashed potato and veggies on the first night and then oven chips the next day 🙂

  3. When you figure out what’s missing let us know.


  4. This is very similar to what I make but I like yours better, you have more goodies, i.e., mushrooms, celery, etc. And, I cheat on the crust, I use Pillsbury’s Pie Crust!
