Old Fashioned Chicken Pie: April 21, 2011

This is a great recipe: simple, to the point, and delicious. It can be made all at once or in stages. It starts by boiling a chicken until the meat is tender and falling off the bones. This part that can be done a day in advance.

Then, all you have to do is pick the meat off the bones and put it into a pie shell. Next, turn the liquid that you boiled the chicken in into a gravy to pour over the meat in the pie shell, cover the whole thing with a top crust, and bake it in the oven. Any chicken pie I've ever made or eaten has had vegetables in it along with the gravy. I suppose that's the difference between a Chicken Pot Pie and an Old Fashioned Chicken Pie. It was very yummy and very popular. We served the pie with a side of greens and a choice of dressing.

Since the pie was so tasty and easy to make, I'm sure it will appear on our menu again very soon!
