      I would divide this recipe in two. The first part the chicken stew which was very good. The second part is the crust that did not come out as good. I followed the recipe but it did not hold very good and I had to put it in pieces on top of the pie. In general is a good recipe but it took forever to prepare. My family liked it but it I am very tired!!!
