? about making homemade pot pies

Im planning on making a chicken pot pie for dinner tomorrow night but Im going to cheat and use store bought pie crust. Since it will have a bottom crust and a top crust, do I have to pre-bake the bottom crust at all or bake the whole thing at one time?

I bought the store brand of pie crust so it doesnt come with any recipes or suggestions.

Any ideas?

Tami

I make a large chicken potpie occasionally with the store bought crusts. You don't have to precook the bottom crust. Cook your chicken and other ingredients (sometimes I make a chicken stew from scatch; then other times canned or leftover chicken, veg-all and cream of chicken soup). I also like to use a deep dish glass pie plate. I assemble it and bake at 350 degrees on a cookie sheet until crust nice and browned (usually 30-45 min). You can experiment will other filling also.

Thanks for the help. I do have a deep dish pie plate that Im going to use too. Im going to grill the chicken ahead of time so that basically everything will just need "warmed up" while the crust bakes.

Keep your fingers crossed for me.

Lightbulb Just wanted to mention:

Something I do that makes homemade chicken pot pies so easy to make is to cook my chicken the day before in the crock pot, then the meat just falls right off the bones so easily.

If you're in a real hurry .....take the whole chicken, rinse, put in a microwave safe bowl, cover with Saran, and cook on High 8 minutes a pound. Check for doness. If needed, cook on high another 8 minutes.

I have done this numerous times.. great for chicken salad...or pot pies or anytime you need cooked chicken..

When I make a pot pie with a biscuit crust, I like to add a little extra milk or water to the biscuit dough so it spreads easier, it's kind of gloppy, but you can spread it and it always turns out nice.

We had it for dinner tonight and it turned out delicious! I asked Dh if it was something he would like to have again and he said yes so Ill add it to my list for "once in a while".

Ill ask about the biscuits for next time too for something different.


Thanks for all of the tips!!

Tami

I follow the directions on the Bisquick box. It's easy and very tasty. My grandmother use to make baking powder biscuits. If you want the recipe for biscuits, let me know and I'll find it.

Chicken Pot Pie

Here's and easy and good recipe for pot pie. It makes a little deeper pot pie than a regular pie crust.......... Quickie Chicken Pot Pie
Boiled and de-boned chicken
1 large can Veg-All
1 can cream of potato soup
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can cream of mushroom soup
Chicken broth
1 box of Pillsbury All-Ready pie crust (2)
Mix chicken, Veg-All, soups and chicken broth to desired density. Place one crust in a round casserole dish. Pour in chicken mixture. Top with second pie crust. Cook until crust is golden brown in a 350 degree oven. Nice and flaky.
