Chicken Pot Pie

Jen Geelen Recipe

By Jen Geelen jenji79


In 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.

pinch tips: How to Core and Slice a Pineapple


chicken thighs (bone-in)
5-6 tsp
chicken bouillon granules
3/4 lb
pot pie noodles (cooked)
3-4 medium
potatoes (cooked and chopped into small chunks)
1 can(s)
corn (optional)
1 medium
onion chopped (optional)

Directions Step-By-Step

In 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.
Remove 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)

Thank you, Jen, for posting this easy recipe. My sister-in-law made chicken and "dumplings" like this, and I loved it! I could never make the dumpling noodles like hers so I quit trying to do it. Can you tell me where you find the noodles ready made? And thank you, Nancy, for giving the recipe. It sounds like the one Wanda used, so I'm going to try it again. For Thanksgiving or Christmas, she always boiled up a big fat chicken to make this also, and it was always so good. We ate good when Wanda was cooking! :) Miss her a lot. Thanks for posting this, Jen.

I purchased my pot pie noodles at a store in Lancaster, PA called Shady Maple Farm Market. I've also seen them in Giant and Weis grocery stores in Lancaster but now that I live in TN I don't see them in the grocery stores where I live. If there is an Amish community nearby where you live, you might find some there or maybe online.

Thanks, Jen. I live in Arizona, so I doubt I can find them here, but I will try Nancy's recipe and see what happens. Maybe if I "practice" a few more times, I can get it right! Barb

Is this a soupy kind or is it a brothy gravy type? We like ours thickened. Not soupy that you need a soup spoon. Please let me know. Maybe if I try it before I hear from you, I can thicken with cornstarch.

The broth is thin like a soup but you could make it thicker like you said with cornstarch

My parents - both from PA - both gone now, but I remember them making HAM POT PIE. Basically your same as chicken pot pie but with ham. I've attempted it many times - each time coming out slightly different, but okay -- nothing compared to mom and dad's though. My homemade "dough" noodles always come out a little too thick but still okay. When visiting in PA I'd go to the Amish stores and buy the pot pie noodles - no where close to what mom & dad made, and not even like mine....... keep trying the old-fashioned homemade dough 'noodle' pot pie..... it's great on a cold day for supper. I will try it with chicken next time I make it. Thanks for the memory!
