- This is a flavor of my childhood the warm smells of pie cooking in the kitchen. Makes my mouth water and heart warm to the memories. This is a simple version to my moms pressure cooker chicken and garden grown ingredients. Not to mention from scratch crust. But its still a crowd pleaser in the kitchen.
- 1 whole rotisserie chicken skinned and deboned – chopped
- 1 red pepper chopped
- 1 small onion chopped
- 2 stalks celery chopped
- 2 carrots chopped
- I cup frozen peas.
- 1 clove garlic finely chopped
- Tbs olive oil
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
- 2 cup chicken broth
- 1/2 cup flour
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Two boxed pie crust for time or scratch recipe
I large pan sauté veggies w oil until past wilt and starting to caramelize. Add chopped chicken and combine with spices and pepper.
Once hot cover with flour and combine all.
Add broth slowly creating a gravy/rue. Salt to taste.add frozen peas to cool a bit and not over cook peas.
Makes two standard pies or one deep dish.
Cover pie dish with 1 crust add hot filling then cover with top crust. Try to roll under crust. Filling will expand a bit in cooking and bubble over sides. Slice vents on pie top. Bake 375 for 45 min on a cookie sheet to catch drippings.
Enjoy hot and watch them lick the plates!
