Inspired by Paula Deen & Rodney Henry

Paula had Rodney on her show recently and this is what the made (sort of...I made it MY way.) I had enough filling for 2 pies. I froze the other half of the filling. I also froze slices of the pie for my lunches.
Here is the link to their original recipe. pauladeen.com/...savory_chicken_pie

This is very time consuming, but if you make a double batch, you have 4 pies. The filling freezes nicely.

How to Make Savory Chicken Pot Pie

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • 2Chicken:

    Place rosemary sprigs, onion slices, garlic slices, and sage under the skin and place into a roasting pan. Salt and pepper the skin. Bake 45 minutes (or longer if using a whole chicken) or until the chicken is done.

    Remove the chicken from the oven and cool.
  • 3Roast carrots, onion wedges & potatoes drizzled with olive oil. (I put them on a sheet pan and put an oven rack above my chicken and cooked them both at the same time.) Roast until tender- 30 minutes or so.
  • 4When chicken has cooled, pour the 'juices ' from the pan into your bowl. Pull the meat from the bones and chop into bite sized pieces. Discard the herbs. Add potatoes, carrots, peas, corn, heavy cream and flour. *** OR you can make a white cream gravy instead of the heavy cream and flour mixture.*** Mix together well. Salt and pepper to taste.
  • 5Pour into the pie crust and top with the other piece of dough. Crimp the edges together with a fork. Brush the top crust with melted butter. Cut a small vent in the top. Bake in the preheated oven (350)for 50 minutes.
  • 6NOTE*** You could easily do this with left over chicken, rotisserie chicken or left over turkey meat from the holidays.

Chicken is my go-to when I just can't figure out what to make for dinner. Whenever I find myself wondering what to make, I grab a package at the market...
