No this isn’t chicken pot pie. This is a traditional southern chicken pie. Once you try this you’ll not want to settle for chicken pot pie again. I remember, as a child, going to the country church for dinner on the grounds. it was usually a singing or “Decoration Day”. All the families came together, each bringing something special. My grandmother always made a chicken pie. Most of the time it was in a big dishpan. I decided to try to re-create her specialty.
I use the this Perfect Pie Crust for the pastry shell. It makes 2 10 inch shells. Because I use a small dish pan I use 2/3 of the recipe for the bottom and the remaining for the top.
This recipe can also be made in smaller individual ramekins.
