Deep-Dish Chicken Pie
  • 1 1/4  cups  all-purpose flour
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/3  cup  shortening
  • 4 - 5  tablespoons  cold water
  • 2  tablespoons  margarine or butter
  • 3  medium leeks or 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1  cup  sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 3/4  cup  sliced celery
  • 1/2  cup  chopped red sweet pepper
  • 1/3  cup  all-purpose flour
  • 1  teaspoon  poultry seasoning
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/4  teaspoon  black pepper
  • 1 1/2  cups  chicken broth
  • 1  cup  half-and-half, light cream, or milk
  • 2 1/2  cups  chopped, cooked chicken
  • 1  cup  frozen peas
  • 1  beaten egg

1. For the pastry topper, in a medium mixing bowl stir together 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in shortening until pieces are the size of small peas. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon cold water over part of the mixture; gently toss with fork. Push moistened dough to side of bowl. Repeat with 3 to 4 tablespoons cold water, using 1 tablespoon at a time, until all dough is moistened. Form into a ball.

2. On a lightly floured surface, roll Pastry Topper into a rectangle 1/8 inch thick. Trim to a rectangle 1 inch larger than a 2-quart rectangular baking dish. Using a sharp knife or small cookie cutter, cut some shapes out of center of pastry. Set aside.

3. In a large saucepan melt margarine or butter over medium heat. Add the leeks or onion, mushrooms, celery, and red sweet pepper; cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until tender. Stir in the 1/3 cup flour, poultry seasoning, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and black pepper. Add the broth and half-and-half, light cream, or milk all at once. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Stir in the cooked chicken and peas. Pour into a baking dish.

4. Place pastry over the hot chicken mixture in dish; turn edges of pastry under and flute on top of pastry. Brush with the egg. Place reserved pastry shapes on top of pastry. Brush again with egg.

5. Bake in a 400 degree F oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until the crust is golden brown. Cool about 20 minutes before serving. Makes 6 servings.
