Chicken Pot Pie

Happy Pi Day! After two years of sharing dessert pies, I decided to share a savory pie today. Why is it called chicken pot pie? Do some people bake it in a pot? I guess you could. I’ve thought about baking it in my Dutch oven before. Instead I usually find random dishes to use. This time, I decided to maximize the crust to pie filling ratio. I used a rectangular baking dish, and it worked really well. I’ve made pot pie a few different ways. Sometimes I’ve used store crusts or puff pastry dough, and sometimes I’ve used rotisserie chicken. I always have peas and carrots. That’s a must. This recipe was great because I was able to make everything at home, and I didn’t need a trip to the store. To me, using rotisserie chicken for a dish isn’t always a time saver. I have to go and buy it near the time I want to use it, and then I have to shred all of the skin after it cools. I decided to try and use my own roasted chicken. Sure enough, it worked, and I could season it however I liked.
