Chicken Pot Pie with Homemade Biscuit Crust


Chicken Pot Pie with Homemade Biscuit Crust

This is my first chicken pot pie and it turns out pretty good. The next challenge is to make a "real" pie with pie dough. :D

Recipe adapted from here.

Ingredients:
(Serves 1 pie in a Pyrex 3-Cup Rectangle Dish)

For the filling:

2 cups cooked chicken breast, cubed
1/3 cup butter
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups water
1 & 1/2 cups full cream milk
1/2 cup yellow onions, chopped
3/4 cup frozen green peas, thawed
3/4 cup frozen sweet corn, thawed
3/4 cup carrots, chopped
3/4 cup potatoes, chopped
Salt and pepper to taste


How to:

For the filling:

1. In a large saucepan, melt butter and slowly stir in flour, salt, and pepper; stir until consistency resembles peanut butter. Add milk slowly and keep stirring.

2. Add in chicken, onions, carrots, potatoes, green peas, and sweet corn. Simmer over medium-low heat until thick. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.

Ingredients:

For the biscuit crust:

1 & 1/3 cup flour
2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar
5 tablespoons cubed cold butter
1/4 cup cold water


How to:

For the biscuit crust:

1. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Mix well.

2. Add cold butter cubes a little at a time and cut into flour mixture until well blended. This mixture will appear chunky in appearance.

3. Stir in cold water, a tablespoon at time, into the dough mixture until well blended.

4. Form dough into a ball and keep it in a sealed zip-lock bag. Place in the fridge to chill for up to an hour.


To assemble:

1. Preheat oven to 200°C.

2. To work the dough, sprinkle workplace with some flour. Roll out the dough until you get the thickness and width that can fit your casserole dish. Set aside.

3. Pour the cooked and cooled chicken pot pie filling into your casserole dish.

4. Top biscuit crust dough over the chicken filling until fully covered. Brush top with milk or eggwash (optional).

4. Bake at 200°C for 20-25 minutes or until top is golden brown.
