Skillet Chicken Pot Pie

Skillet Chicken Pot Pie is full of chicken and vegetables that are cooked in one skillet then covered with pie dough and baked in the oven. Use a cast iron skillet (or an oven safe skillet) and everything can be done in one pan.

This is another post from a cooking class that I attended. The pictures were taken in a hurry and at a different location than my home. The recipe was given to us by the chef and the Skillet Chicken Pot Pie tasted excellent. Your pot pie will be a little wetter than the picture when it comes out of the oven. We made and baked the pot pie at the class, took it home and I reheated it the next day for this picture so most of the liquid was absorbed and it was still delicious!

Push everything toward the edge of the

skillet making the center clear of food.

Place the butter into the center trying to

keep it from melting into the vegetables.

Once the butter is melted, quickly

whisk the flour into the butter

trying not to leave any lumps.

Place the pie crust on top of the vegetables.

Be careful of the hot pan. Make sure

the dough doesn’t go over the edge

of the pan. Tuck the dough inside the

pan instead and touching the edge.

Poke small slits all over the dough.

****************************

Remember I made this in class and we had

to split the recipe so we used aluminum

pans so we could take them home.

Cover the top of the dough with a light

coating of the egg and bake in a preheated

375 degree oven for 45 – 60 minutes or

until the top is a golden brown.

Let the pot pie rest for 10 minutes then serve.

  1. Looks amazing! I was on the reader then went to your site. It says “follow”… I tried logging in several times and it didn’t work. Some on a comment (on my blog) said they had the problem then clicked on “about” then it said “following”. I did this before on another site and it didn’t work. BUT, it did with yours just now. BUT, when I try to “like” from your site a white box appears and nothing happens. But, I can like from the reader. Weird…
