Chicken Pie With Sweet Potato Crust

Recipe by mollypaul

Peas other vegetables would also be very nice in this savory pie. Substitute turkey for the chicken, if you wish. From the Southern chapter of the United States Regional Cookbook, Culinary Arts Institute of Chicago, 1947.

This is a very good recipe, the only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars was that I haven't been able to get the crust to come out right. I have tried it twice, and both times had to add a bunch of extra flour to be able to roll it out at all. And both times ,when i tried to put it on top it folded over on itself. It is still very tasty, but seems to need quite a bit more than the reccommended flour in the crust.
