Miss Hulling's Chicken Pot Pie

Ingredients & Directions


1 5 pound stewing hen, cut up
5 c Water
1 sm Onion
1/2 ts Salt
1 Recipe pastry
2 md Potatoes, cooked and cubed
2 Ribs celery
2 Carrots

Simmer chicken in water with onion, celery, carrots and salt until
tender (about 3 hours). Remove chicken from bones and cut in cubes,
discarding the skin. Strain broth and measure, adding water to make 3
cups. Thicken broth with 4 Tablespoons flour mixed with 1/4 cup
water. Adjust seasonings with a dash of white pepper and more salt if
necessary. Add chicken, carrots (cubed) and cubed potatoes. Spoon
into 6 individual casserole dishes or a 2-quart casserole. Roll
pastry about 1/4-inch thick and top the casserole, sealing the edges.
Make several slashes in the pastry to allow the steam to escape. Bake
in a hot oven (400 degrees F.) for about 30 minutes or until golden
brown. Helpful Hints: Biscuit dough (rolled thin) or individual
biscuits may be used for the topping. I also add defrosted frozen
peas, to add more color.
