Chicken Pot Pie

Pot Pie Squares (the noodles)
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 T. vegetable shortening (such as Crisco)
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup water
    Preparation -
    Combine the flour, egg, and shortening. Alternately knead & add small amounts of water until the dough holds together. Divide the dough into two or three pieces. Roll each piece to about 1/8" thickness on a floured board. Cut the rolled out dough into squares about 2" to 2-1/2" each. Allow the freshly made pot pie noodles to dry for about 30 minutes or more before cooking.

    the stew
    You can also use about 3 or 4 cups of shredded chicken or turkey leftovers for this recipe. (If you do, use prepared chicken stock instead of the 2 quarts water. I use about 4 cans of chicken broth, such as College InnŽ Broth, with leftover chicken or turkey.)

  • 1 - 3 lb. stewing chicken
  • 2 quarts of water
  • 5 medium potatoes - peeled and cut into bite size chunks
  • 2 cups chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup very finely diced carrots
  • 1 small onion - chopped
  • 1 T. dried parsley
  • 1 tsp.salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
    Preparation -
    Cook theh chicken in water until tender. Remove the chicken from the broth; remove the bones and skin; cut or shred the chicken meat into bite size pieces. Meanwhile, add the vegetables and seasonings to the simmering broth, cook for about 15 to 20 minutes, then start to the add the pot pie squares to the broth mixture, a few at a time, stirring frequently so they don't stick together. After all the noodles have been added, cook gently for about 6 to 8 minutes or until the noodles are tender. Add the cut-up chicken. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally for about 20 minutes longer. Remove from heat. Let stand for about 5 minutes before serving. Pot pie is usually served on dinner plates or in shallow bowls. Serve with a salad such as coleslaw, pepper cabbage or lettuce with hot bacon dressing for a complete meal. Leftovers taste even better than the first time around.
