    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.

      Oh Yes!!! We all thought this dish was just divine. To get the cooked chicken required, I used chicken breasts (on the bone and with skin on), boiled them in a little water to which I added about 1/2 cup of white wine and 1/2 cup of apple juice, and this formed the basis of the stock used later to make the sauce - VERY TASTY. I aso added my diced onions and carrots to the chicken & stock towards the end of the cooking so that they also absorbed this flavour. The sweet potato pastry is tasty and filling - real "stick to the ribs" fare. This is definitely going into my Tried and Tested Hits!! Thank you for a "flavour-full" recipe.
