1. Preparing the Dough

To make a yummy chicken stew pot pie, the first step is to make the dough. You’ll need all-purpose flour, butter, salt, and ice water. The cold butter and ice-cold water will make the dough light and flaky. Here’s how you do it:

  • Mix the flour, salt, and butter.
  • Add the ice water and combine.
  • Voila! Delicious dough.

Gather ingredients

Gather key ingredients for the dough of your Chicken Stew Pot Pie! All-purpose flour, sugar (optional), salt, butter and cold water – plus a dash of vinegar for an extra flaky crust.

Mix together flour, sugar, salt and butter until it looks like cornmeal. Add enough cold water to form a one inch ball of dough. This usually takes 2-3 tablespoons of water, but it may vary. Wrap the dough in plastic and refrigerate for at least an hour. Then, roll it out and use it in your Chicken Stew Pot Pie recipe!

Mix and knead dough

Mix one and a half cups of all-purpose flour, one tablespoon of sugar, three-quarter teaspoon salt and five and three quarters tablespoons of cold unsalted butter. Cut butter into cubes and put in food processor or mixer bowl. Mix until it looks like sand with no chunks of butter remaining. Ensure a layer of ice water covers any liquid that forms during mixing. Add just enough ice water to bring everything together. Refrigerate for thirty minutes before kneading. Knead just enough for everything to stick together. Do not overwork, else the pot pie will be tough when baked.

Roll out dough

  • Lightly flour work surface and rolling pin. Place dough in center. Gently roll from center outward, turning several times. Avoid stretching or pulling.

Chicken stew pot pie – yum! This recipe will help you make a delicious pot pie. Get all the ingredients and any extra supplies you need. Ready? Let’s go!

Place dough in pie dish

Roll out the dough for your pie crust like you would for any other pie. Place it in a 9-inch pie dish. Make sure there’s at least an inch of overhang. Trim off any big pieces so there’s only one or two inches left. Press around the edges with your fingers and knuckles until it’s even with all sides. Take your time and press firmly.

Prick the base several times with a fork. This helps prevent air bubbles when cooking.

Add filling

Roll the dough out and fit it into the pie tin. Use a fork to make little holes in the base. Add 1-2 cups of cooked chicken and diced veggies, like potatoes, carrots, celery, green beans, and/or peas.

To make a gravy, mix 1 cup chicken broth and 2 tablespoons of cornstarch until smooth. Heat it and slowly whisk in more broth until desired consistency. Pour the mixture into the crust.

Spoon mashed potatoes on top, but go easy on arrangement. Brush with beaten egg and bake at 375°F (190°C) for 40-45 mins. Remove, let stand 10 mins, and enjoy!

Cover with top crust

Once your filling for the chicken stew pie is ready, roll out the top crust. Carefully lay it over the filling, so it hangs over the sides of the pot. Trim off any extra crust. Use your fingertips and thumbs to crimp the edges.

If you want an extra decorative effect, cut shapes out of any scraps of dough. Decorate the edges of your pie before baking. Put it in the oven!

4. Baking

Baking is an amazing way to create yummy dishes that are easy and pleasing! Chicken stew pot pie is a meal that has all the scrumptious flavors of classic chicken stew. Plus, it is baked in a delectable, flaky pie crust. Let’s examine the components and steps for baking an ideal chicken stew pot pie.

Preheat oven

Before you start making your Chicken Stew Pot Pie, preheat the oven. Check the recipe for the right temperature. You may need to set a burner or a dial control near the front of the control panel. This can take up to 20 minutes. Don’t rush! It affects how well items bake.

After preheating, you can start preparing and baking your Chicken Stew Pot Pie!

Bake for 30-35 minutes

Put your chicken stew pot pie in a preheated oven of 375°F (190°C).

Bake it for 30-35 minutes, or until the edges are golden-brown.

To check if it is cooked through, insert a knife or fork into the center.

Rotate the pie in the middle of baking to ensure even baking.

If needed, cover any exposed areas with parchment paper.

Tent some foil over parts of the Pie shell to prevent excessive browning or burning.

Let cool before serving

Place the top crust on the stew pot pie filling and bake in the oven for around 45 minutes. The crust should be a golden brown and crispy at the edges. To check if it’s finished, stick a knife into one of the vent holes and make sure there is no raw dough. If there is any pinkish dough, bake for an extra 5-10 minutes.

Remove from oven and let cool for at least 10 minutes. This will let the flavors blend together and make it taste amazing! The hardest part comes next – try not to eat the entire pot pie right away!

5. Serving

A yummy chicken stew pot pie is great for any event! The mix of sweet and salty tastes is sure to please. It’s a breeze to make and serve. Plus, it has the perfect blend of flavors and textures for a delicious and full meal.

Let’s explore the top ways to eat and relish a tasty pot of chicken stew pot pie:

Cut into slices

Prior to serving, slice Chicken Stew Pot Pie for even portions. Utilize a large knife for cutting. Slice the pie into single servings – one per person being fed. Depending on the pan and size, 8 servings can be offered.

Refrigerate leftovers as quickly as possible if not eaten; spoilage occurs at room temp.

Serve with sour cream or gravy

Sour cream or gravy add a delightful contrast to Chicken Stew Pot Pie. Pour some over the finished dish before serving, for a tangy flavor that’ll really make it special.

Sour cream should be cold or at room temperature. If you want something milder, use unpasteurized or cultured sour cream. Or try Greek yogurt or low-fat sour cream for a touch of tartness.

Gravy amps up the savory factor. Pour it over the dish while warm, to melt evenly. Or make your own with pan drippings, bones, herbs and unique flavors like truffle oil, Parmesan cheese, and sautéed mushrooms. Transform an ordinary pot pie from mundane to extraordinary!
