Chicken Pot Pie w/ Cream Cheese Crust

I absolutely loved this dish! I am a big fan of down home cooking. Maybe I should call this blog Sassy Southern Cooking? I'll thinking about it. Anywho, the filling was very easy to make and delicious!  I found the recipe at Mommy's Kitchen, I just love her blog, she's from Mesquite, Texas which is around where my dad lived when I was growing up so it gives me good memories or my step mom and him cooking my favorite southern foods.




After making this fabulous pot pie I have decided making pie crust of any sort is just not necessary in my life unless it's for an important event. This was my first time making a crust from scratch, it was a lot of work! I had read you didn't really need a pastry cutter, and that a long fork would suffice, but I'm calling BS on that one, I'm thinking that is what made this so taxing, or maybe not? I am going to take the same recipe for the filling and try putting biscuits on top, stay tuned.

When making the crust combine flour, butter, and cream cheese,
cut mixture until it is crumbly...


like this.


This is where my stroke of genius came in,
I remembered we had a roasted chicken from H.E.B. just waiting to be eaten,
and what a time saver! But if you don't just grill up some chicken on a grill pan.



Sandra Lee would be so proud

 

I put my boyfriend to work and had him dice up some potatoes and boil them,
we over cooked them a bit, and they just kind of fell apart in the pie.
I think next time I will just serve it over mashed potatoes.


Roll out your pie crust, and cut out 6 overlapping circles.
You can also make one big one, but I like individual servings.
I should have rolled it out into a square learn from my rookie mistakes.




I couldn't find a smaller sauce pot so I had to use a  large pot,
anyway melt the butter and stir in the flour, garlic and spices.
Slowly stir in warm water, and milk then slightly crush the bouillon cubes and add.
Bring to a soft boil, and stir constantly for about 2 minutes.




Add the frozen veggies and chunk/ or shredded chicken.
oh my goodness just looking at that makes me ravenous!
That filling is so good you could just eat it all by it's self
Then add mixture to individual pie pans.




 I don't know how to cook without making a mess, as you can see.
Place the top crusts on the pic pans and flute the edges with a fork.
This will make your house smell soo delicious

Bake at 425 for 20 minutes my color didn't come out golden brown like Tina's
so i think i went wrong somewhere? Probably didn't leave it in long enough,
oh well they were still fabulous.




 



Ingredients
Shell crust
1-2/3 c. flour
2 t. celery seed (optional)
1- 8 oz. cream cheese, cold
1/3 c. butter, cold
1/4 t. salt

Filling
1 whole chicken, pulled from bone and cut into chunks
1/3 cup - real butter
1/3 cup - flour
2 t. minced garlic
1/2 t. salt
dash of pepper
1-1/2 cup - warm water
2/3 cup- milk
3 chicken bouillon cubes
1 cup- frozen mixed veggies
3 - individual sized tin pie bowls


For the crust combine the flour, cream cheese, and butter in a bowl. Cut in the cold cream cheese and butter until you have a crumbly mixture. Then starting working it with your hands, kneading until you have a ball of dough: On a floured surface, roll out the dough in to a flat square. Take one of your tin bowls and trace and cut an overlapped piece of dough. Place it into the bowl and softly press it into the corners: You will get three servings out of this recipe. roll out a total of 6 squares for 3 bottom crust and 3 top crusts. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, melt the butter. Stir in the flour, garlic, and spices till blended. Slowly stir in the warm water, bouillon cubes, and milk. Slowly bring a soft boil, stir constantly for about 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat and add the frozen vegetables and chicken. Fill the shells: Put the tops of the crusts over this and seal the edges. You can use a fork to make a fluted edge. Make a criss cross slit in the center: Bake at 425 degrees for about 20 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown. Serve over mashed potatoes or right out of the bowl. If making one large pot pie bake about 30-40 minutes. Watch it carefully so it doesn't get to brown on top.


Note: This was too salty for me, next time I made it with low
sodium chicken broth instead of warm water and bouillon cubes.

  7. I'm learning Chinese language because I believe it's the only way to really learn about China.When I was searching for a place to learn to speak Chinese, I called several schools. Hanbridge was the best because they had excellent teachers and a very friendly and welcoming spirit. ?I really appreciate the opportunity to learn here and would recommend Hanbridge to others.
