A flavorful and delicious homemade chicken pot pie with a homemade crust that is flaky and buttery.



For the filling:

2 cooked chicken breasts; diced, sliced, or whatever you like.

1 cup heavy cream

1 cup chicken stock

1 can cream of chicken with herbs

2 cups gold potatoes, diced into bite sized pieces

1 cup carrots, diced into bite sized pieces

½ cup peas

½ cup pearl onions, halved

1 ½ teaspoons parsley

1 teaspoon sage

1 teaspoon celery salt

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon pepper

For the crust:

3 cups flour

1 ¼ teaspoon salt

1 large egg

¾ cup cubed butter, very cold

¾ cup vegetable shortening

1 tablespoon white vinegar

5 tablespoons cold water


For the filling:

1.Chop chicken, carrots, and potatoes into bite sized pieces, halve onions, set aside. In a mixing bowl combine heavy cream, cream of chicken and chicken stock; whisk to combine. Add all spices, chicken, and all vegetables; stir to combine. Transfer mixture to baking dish. See next steps to prepare crust.

For the crust:

1.Add flour and salt to a large mixing bowl. Cube cold butter. Either work the butter and shortening through the flour with a pastry blender/fingers or pulse these ingredients together in a food processor. Do this until mixture resembles coarse wet sand; you should be able to see tiny pieces of butter. Add the egg, vinegar, and cold water; mix (or pulse) to combine.

2. Turn the dough out onto a well floured surface and roll it out into a thin sheet. Add flour to the rolling pin as well. Once the dough meets the size of the pans your will use for baking, place the dough on top of the other prepared ingredients and get ready to bake! Pinch the dough to meet the sides of the baking dish so the liquid doesn't seep out. Use a fork to poke tiny holes on top to let the steam escape. Bake in the oven at 375 degrees for 1 hour.


*Cook chicken while you prepare everything else.

*Use a pastry blender for the crust if you have one. If you use a food processor, be sure to pulse!
