SERVES: 8-12
YIELD: 1 pie




  • Get a small, whole chicken - a fryer is good.
  • Put the chicken in a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium, cover and cook until the meat falls off the bones.
  • Take the chicken out of the pot and port the broth through a strainer into a big bowl. (You will use this to make your gravy.).
  • If you want potato and veggies in your pie, pre-cook them (except frozen veggies - just thaw them or they will be mushy).
  • Put a pie crust in a pie pan. Lay pieces of chicken on the crust (about 4c of chicken). Put the potatoes and any veggies on top of the chicken.
  • To make the gravy, melt the butter in a saucepan. Add flour and whisk until smooth. Slowly whisk in chicken broth. Cook over medium high heat until thickened, whisking frequently. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Pour gravy on top of the chicken and veggies. Put on the top crust and crimp the edges and cut a few small vents in the top of the crust.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes in a preheated 425 degree oven, until the crust is golden brown.
