In 2005 I moved to a little town called Advance, NC. While living there many of the churches would sell something called "Chicken Pies". I had heard of Chicken Pot Pies, but Chicken Pies? They are delicious and are just what the title says. Chicken Pie - that's it. I found this recipe on about.com.
- 1 premade pie crusts or 1 homemade pie crust
- 6 tablespoons butter
- 6 tablespoons flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄8 teaspoon pepper
- 1 3⁄4 cups chicken broth
- 2⁄3 cup half-and-half
- 3 cups chopped cooked chicken
- Prepare pastry; divide in two portions, about two-thirds in one portion and one-third in other. Roll out the larger portion and line a shallow 1 1/2-quart baking dish (about 10x6). Melt butter in a medium saucepan; add flour and seasonings and stir until smooth and bubbly.
- Add liquids and cook slowly until thickened; add chicken. Pour into pastry-lined pan. Roll out remaining pastry; cover chicken mixture; pinch edges together. Bake at 425° for 35 minutes, or until pastry is nicely browned.
- Chicken pie serves 6.
