Mini Chicken Pot Pies

This is (in my opinion) the best chicken pot pie recipe ever. So what makes this pot pie recipe so special? Love, butter and a homemade pastry dough recipe!

One of the joys of cooking is being able to share a meal with someone in need.

Whether we’re delivering dinner to a sick friend or new parents, or simply inviting guests into our home, there’s something therapeutic for both the cook and the recipient when made-from-scratch food exchanges hands.

MY OTHER RECIPES


I get emotional benefits (and even spiritual benefits) from offering an act of love to another human being, and they receive the warm soothing message loud and clear.

You are cherished.

You are worth my time.

You are not forgotten.

That is what cooking can do. We often underestimate the power of a home-cooked meal. Yet feeding people well can bring a certain healing and internal peace that resonates deep within.

I love that.

Making - The BEST Chicken Pot Pie Recipe Ever! #chicken #potpie #recipe #giveameal

Chicken pot pie is one of those dishes that is especially comforting and always well received.

I’ve made many pot pie recipe variations over the years, with pie crust and store-bought puff pastry. But I have found that what really makes a pot pie recipe stand out, is a killer, made-from-scratch pastry dough.

How To - The BEST Chicken Pot Pie Recipe Ever! #chicken #potpie #recipe #giveameal

My very best chicken pot pie recipe starts with a pastry dough recipe that is somewhere between a puff pastry and a blitz pastry.

It’s light and airy, with crisp, buttery layers that bake to golden perfection.

The flaky texture of the baked pastry complements the rich goodness of white-meat chicken, veggies and a silken-cream chicken base.

I also like to add a dash (or two) of cayenne to provide an unexpected kick of flavor.

    These little pot pies are too darn cute, Sommer! I need to give these a try – with the homemade crust. I usually opt for the store bougt crusts because I seem to lack in the crust making skills. But I gotta keep trying until I get it perfect, right? :)

    These little pies look really lovely. Can you tell me, please, how much a stick of butter weighs as our butter doesn’t come in “sticks” in the UK but in 8oz blocks?

    • Sommerposted April 11, 2014 at 5:54 am Reply

      Hi Christine! Each “stick” is 4 oz butter.

    These are SO. INCREDIBLY. CUTE. I love the idea of mini pot pies, since I never seem able to finish a regular personal-sized one by myself. I bet these smell amazing while they’re baking! Pinned :)

    Can these be made early in the day, refrigerated and then baked later in the afternoon?

    Can I freeze these before baking them? If so, I’m wondering what temperature to bake them at and for how long if they’re frozen? Any advice is much appreciated! I’m really looking forward to trying out this recipe!

    • Sommerposted September 21, 2014 at 7:42 am Reply

      Yes! You may have to double the bake time and cover with foil half way through baking, but they turn out great!

      • Julie Heltsleyposted September 23, 2014 at 2:11 pm

        Thanks, Sommer! I tried the recipe and I love it! The crust is so delicious and the filling is very flavorful. I actually used 2 small pie pans. I baked one and froze the other. I’m planning on baking the frozen pie later on this week. I’ll let you know how it goes! Thanks for the recipe!
