Crust

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2/3 cups shortening
  • 4 to 5 Tbsp ice water

  1. Mix flour and salt in a bowl.
  2. Cut in shortening until mixutre resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Sprinkle ice water over, mixing until dough cleans sides of bowl.
  4. Gather into ball.

Filling

  • 1/4 cup margarine or butter
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • Dash or three of pepper
  • 1 (10 1/2-oz) can condensed chicken broth
  • 3/4 cup milk (I use soy)
  • 2 cups cubed cooked chicken
  • 1 cup frozen sweet peas
  • 1 cup baby carrots
  • 1 cup potato

  1. Cube and cook the chicken.
  2. Coarsely chop carrot and potato. Boil until soft. Set aside.
  3. In a big pot, melt butter/margarine, blend in flour. Sitr until smooth.
  4. Gradually stir in broth and milk, cook unitl mixture thickens. Add chicken peas, carrots and potatoes.
  5. Roll out 2/3 of the pastry to a 13 inch circle. Put in an oven safe casserole dish.
  6. Pour filling into pastry-lined dish.
  7. Roll out remaining pastry, place over filling, seal edges and pierce with a fork.
  8. Bake at 400F for 20 to 25 minutes or until crust is golden brown.

This recipe isn't all that easy. There is a lot of chopping and cooking in many pots (so a lot of clean up), but I always double or triple the recipe and freeze the extra which makes two super easy meals later. The frozen ones need to cook for an hour.
