Homemade Chicken Pot Pie


Chicken pot pie – before going into the oven and after.

No, the baby chicks are not in the chicken pot pie!

Last week I made my first homemade chicken pot pie. It was delicious! The only problem was I wish I had made just another cup or so of the delicious filling as it wasn’t the nice, round dome look that a pie should be. We loved it so much though, I think I will make another one next month. I can’t wait now to make a good, apple pie with the crust. I made Matthew a pie like dish with phyllo dough layered on top. He loved it. It had apples, currants, raisins and cranberries. Added was sugar, cinnamon, cardoman, cloves and some other spices I believe, mixed with a little butter. It was delicious. He’s been asking me for it again. I think I will try my hand at making my own pastry type phyllo dough since the regular pie dough turned out so beautifully. Our camera doesn’t do justice to the pictures though as it’s an old camera (10 years or so for digital). Hopefully sometime this year we’ll get a new one and we can take some really beautiful pictures of our kids, food and farming!
