I watched Paula Deen and her guest, Rodney Henry, make this and it looked soooo good! Plus they had such a good time making it. LOL I know there are quite a few good chicken pot pie recipes out there, but when I have the time, I love to roast this chicken and make this home-made pie crust. Otherwise, using a store-bought chicken and pie crust works just fine. From Food Network. Hope you enjoy! UPDATE: I meant to correct the measurements of the crust, I have done so now. Sorry for this mishap.

This was super easy as I made a few changes. I used the pie crust recipe from Thomas Keller's Ad Hoc cookbook, which uses butter instead of shortening. I bought 2 rotisserie chickens and used only the breast meat. I am not sure that I would use the entire 2-1/2 cups of heavy cream next time, maybe just 2 cups. I had to pour some of it off after I cut the first piece. It does need to set-up for about 30 minutes before you cut into's still very warm! Again, this was super easy and amazingly wonderful! Enjoy!
