Due to the waste of chicken in the restaurants, the Colonel created a recipe to help use the chicken that was unable to be sold...so he devised the potpie recipe. You see, the chicken could only sit and be sold for 2 hrs after it is fried. This was sent to a recipe group, AARestaurant_Recipes, by tabbitha
- 2 potatoes, peeled and cooked
- 2⁄3 cup frozen peas
- 2 cans cream of chicken soup
- 2 carrots, peeled and cooked
- 2 tablespoons frozen onions
- 2 cups cooked chicken
- 1 dash salt and pepper
- 1 dash msg
- In a bowl, combine all cooked vegetables and chicken; add the cream of chicken soup and seasoning.
- The mixture should be thick, but not too thick; if the mixture is too thick add some milk to the mixture.
- Scoop the mixture into individual pie pans.
- Use the KFC biscuit recipe, which I have added to my collection, to make the crust.
- Roll out the dough thin, and place on top; then brush with butter.
- Bake in a 375 F oven for 15 to 25 minutes or until it is heated throughout and the crust is golden brown.
This recipe was pretty much spot on!!! I did tweak it just a bit to suit our tastes. I used fresh potatoes and carrots, diced and boiled them together in chicken broth. I cooked them until semi tender. I used fresh chicken tenders, cut into small chunks. I put about 2-3 tablespoons olive oil in my skillet, added chicken, onion, 1/2 stalk celery diced, garlic salt & seasoned salt. Cooked on medium heat until chicken was throughly cooked. I used 2 tubes of crescent rolls as my crust. One for the top and one for the bottom. While my bottom crust was browning, I mixed all ingredients together in the skillet, I added some frozen peas the soup and water. I then added the final touch, about 3 tablespoons butter!!! That was the final touch that sealed the deal!!! It was KFC only made at home!!! After my bottom crust cooled for a while, I poured the mix on, put the remaining roll of crescent rolls on top of the mixture. I then cup up small chunks of butter and laid on top. Moved my oven rack up one level so the bottom crust wouldn't over brown. It turned out perfect!!! My husband ate 2 bowls!!! Nuff said!!! Rounded out the meal with homemade mashed potatoes and hot buttery biscuits!!!
I made this last Sunday. Don't use the biscuit recipe though, use Pillsbury pie crusts. You can buy them in a box of two from your local grocery store. I didn't know if it would taste okay at first, but once it was baked it tasted EXACTLY the same as the crusts at KFC. It's truly delicious.
Quite pleased with the Pot Pie, good taste, creamy sauce, veggies were just rigtht, chicken plentiful but they should be careful so as to remove any small bones, this can be a turnoff, it wasn't for me because I was pleased with the taste and the size of the single bone did make it standout before I put the piece of chicken in my mouth. Crust was out of this world, 5 star.
