This pie is a sure winner with anyone who sees or smells it. This easy, flavorful crust has both cream cheese and butter as the fat which makes it amazing. It can also be used with sweet fruit ingredients, just by using sugar and cinnamon or nutmeg instead of salt and the herbs.
Making your own sauce instead of using a canned condensed soup will make all the difference in the world!

You can do variations of this recipe by using beef making a brown sauce by browning the roux and using beef beef stock instead of milk and beef "Better than boullion".

How to Make Robin's Chicken Pot Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. Make dough ahead of time; work all ingredients until well incorporated and set aside for later.
  2. Dust a little flour on a flat surface to roll out into a round shape, like a pizza dough. Place the glass pie pan face down and carve the shape of the pan. Once you have the desired round shape and size cut small holes for venting. You can cut plain slits or be creative, its up to you
  3. Cover the pie with the crust and brush with egg wash for shine.
  4. Combine all spices, herbs and oil and sautee chicken pieces until half done about 5-8 minutes and set aside.
  5. Like making a roux, heat equal parts of oil & flour stirring not to let get brown. Add milk and stir vigorously avoiding lumps. Once the sauce is smooth add the optional chicken boullion for flavor and color.
  6. Combine the sauce, chicken and veggies to the glass pie pan and top with the crust.
  7. Brush with egg wash and place in oven @ 350° for about 1 hour or until the crust is golden brown.
