Jen's StoryIn central PA, pot pie is made with noodles not a crust. Pot pie noodles are small thin squares. Its more of a soup. Not your typical chicken pot pie.
I posted a picture of what a pot pie noodle looks like.
chicken thighs (bone-in)
chicken bouillon granules
pot pie noodles (cooked)
potatoes (cooked and chopped into small chunks)
onion chopped (optional)
1In a large stock pot add chicken. Cover with water. Add bouillon granules. The amount you add will depend on the amount of water you add. The water should look yellow. Cook until chicken is done. Remove chicken from pot. Save the stock you just made.
2Remove chicken from the bone. Discard bones. Add chicken, pot pie noodles, potatoes, corn, and onion to stock. Simmer for 1 hour.

You are soooooo right! Our (south central PA) potpie is made w/noodles, etc. So Gooood! My mom used to make her potpie noodle squares homeade. She'd roll the dough and cut them out. I used to, but its just too much work when you can buy them and they're just as tasty. I use all your ingredients but also add a little saffron and some minced onions. Also a bay leaf in the broth. Also a little parsley at the end. mmmmm. So glad to see someone else knows what potpie is to us PA Dutch ppl! (smile)
