This was an okay recipe for a chicken pie. I biscuit crust was great. All of the ingredients make this seem like a long, or difficult recipe to make... but ti really isn't. I also thought the seasoning was a bit strong to my taste, also the apples and rasins really didnt fit well I feel in this dish. Over all an decent recipe.

I really wanted to like this as it smelled so good while cooking and had a lovely presentation, but the poultry seasoning was overpowering. I double-checked and I did use the right amount. On the plus side, this was my first attempt at a pastry crust using butter, and the crust turned out beautifully. Made for RSC No. 10
