Chicken Pot Pie
For the pie dough put:
6 cups of flour in a big bowl stir in
2 teaspoons of salt
3 cups of CRISCO
Cut the shortening into the flour mixture then stir in
1 ½ cups of water and mix good
Grease a jelly roll size pan, they are cheap and they have them
anywhere like dollar General or
Family dollar. Spray it with Pam and roll out dough on a floured surface. Cut dough to fit pan on sides and bottom, does not have to be fancy, makes no difference.
After bottom and sides covered then pour chicken pie mixture
in and cover the top with strips of dough. I have
about a small pie pan of dough left and you can make a one crust pie with it.
If you want to make a 'big cobbler this is a great crust the only difference is put one third cup of sugar in the dough.
Chicken Pie Filling
Boil a chicken, have 1 quart of home made broth. Take meat off of chicken and set aside.
In a large pan sauté
2 sticks of margarine
1 large onion
1 large bell pepper
1 cup of celery
When this is done put
1 cup of flour in it and stir
2 cups of cooked carrots
1 drained can of Leisure peas (the little bitty peas)
Add to the broth
2 cup size of pet milk (condensed)
2 - 3 oz cans of drained mushrooms
Put chicken meat in if this seems a little too thick add some
more broth can use canned broth at this stage, needs to hold together but
not to be too thick. You know just right!! hahaha
Spray Pam on a jelly roll size pan and put pie dough on bottom and sides.
Add the chicken pie mixture, then, strip it over the top with the dough.
Cook at 300 or 350 until golden brown and yummy!!!
This is not a diet meal but our favorite!!
It makes a lot of pie but freezes great just cut into serving
size pies put on a cookie sheet freeze then put it in freezer bags.
When you get ready to heat it just put on a cookie sheet and cook at 300 degrees, it will be perfect and ready to eat in just a jiffy.
Sure a lot better than Swansons!!!!
