Use a little extra seasoning while preparing this potpie; the flavors mellow as it cooks.

Cook's Notes

Be sure to chill the dough before and after rolling it out, then curl it around the pin, and unfurl to cover the pie. Tuck the overlapping edges of pastry inside the dish to create a thick, rustic rim of crust.

    This is my go to recipe for chicken pot pie. Just a few tweaks. I usually omit the lemon and the leeks. I increase the pearl onions. I usually buy the frozen pearl onions and use 1/2 a bag of those. Otherwise, this is THE recipe for Chicken Pot Pie.

    Just plain excellent! A huge hit. My husband has always claimed he doesn't like chicken potpie, so I had never made it. Then, the perfect opportunity arose, and I took it as a personal challenge to serve him a version that would change his mind. This did the trick! The =only= adjustment I made was to stir in about 3/4-cup frozen peas right before the crust went on top, because I think they are mandatory for pot pie.

    I love this recipe. It makes converts out of people that think they dont like chicken pot pie. I usually omit the mushrooms. The thyme and lemon zest makes its so flavorful and not too heavy.

    This recipe is reliable and delicious. I've made it many times--both for regular dinners and for guests. Typically, I use a small roasting chicken for even richer flavor.

    You can not go wrong with this one! A family favorite and has become one of my signature dishes, thanks to Martha and the Comfort Food Cookbook. I actually boil the chicken for a but longer then it calls for, it will thenfall off of the bones and make that part a bit easier and faster
