Don’t you just love warm meals on a chilly Autumn day? Whether it’s soup, chili, or mom’s famous casserole, fall is definitely all about delicious, hearty, heart warming meals.
For me, nothing goes better with fall than a scrumptious chicken pot pie. That creamy filling. That buttery, flaky crust. My mouth started watering just typing out that last sentence! Yes, there’s nothing better than pot pie! But what if you could change just a few flavors? What if you could transform the traditional chicken pot pie into a blend of unique taste, texture, and aroma?
We did just that! Taking everything we love about the traditional summer-time chicken salad, and baking it up in a delicious pie crust, we’ve created a twist on a classic tradition that we know your family will simply love. Grab some flour and Freeze Dried Chicken, it’s time to bake up some Chicken Salad Pot Pie!
2 cups Honeyville Freeze Dried Chicken
1/2 cup Slivered Almonds
1/2 cup Honeyville Freeze Dried Onion
1/2 cup Honeyville Dehydrated Celery
2 Tbsp Lemon Juice
1/2 cup Mayonnaise
1/2 cup Sour Cream
1 can Cream of Chicken Soup
1/2 tsp Ground Black Pepper
1/2 tsp Chef Tess Greek Olympian Spice
3/4 cup Honeyville Freeze Dried Cheddar Cheese
Yields: 4 Individual Pies
First, make your pie crust. In your BOSCH Food Processor attachment, add water, flour, butter, shortening, and sugar, and blend until a sticky dough forms.
Remove dough from processor, wrap in plastic wrap, and chill in refrigerator for 3-4 hours.
When dough is ready, preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a medium bowl re-hydrate your chicken by soaking it in water until soft, then draining excess liquid.
In a large mixing bowl, combined chicken, almonds, onion, celery, lemon juice, mayonnaise, sour cream, cream of chicken soup, black pepper, and chef tess spice, and mix together.
Once mixture is created, add cheddar cheese and mix until just combined.
On a hard, floured surface, roll out your dough.
Using a ramekin, punch out dough.
If you’re going to top your pie with a dough circle make sure to punch out two dough circles for each ramekin.
Prepare ramekin by spraying the inside with cooking spray, then placing dough circle in the bottom.
Scoop in pie filling.
Top with dough circle, pinching down the sides.
If you prefer to lattice your pie, you may do that also.
Brush tops with egg wash (1 egg + 1/4 cup water, whisked) and bake in oven at 375 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove and allow to cool for 15 minutes before serving. Remember, ramekins will be hot!
This is the pie your fall memories have been waiting for! The aroma that will fill your kitchen as these are baking is simply out of this world! The delicious blend of tastes, textures, and spices give this pie on over-the-top taste, while filling your stomach with heart-warming goodness. The best part is the crust! This pie crust recipe gives you a light, flaky, buttery crust every time!
Autumn is all about warm meals, and nothing beats a pot pie like this on a cool fall day!
