Thread: I bought a roasted chicken...

  1. #1
    Wayne Boatwright Guest

    Default I bought a roasted chicken...

    A local Phoenix supermarket chain sells organically grown, additive free
    and very lightly seasoned roasted chickens. I had bought one once before
    and made a wonderful chicken salad from the meat.

    Tonight I bought one to use in a chicken pot pie. I skinned and boned the
    chicken and tore the meat into bite sized pieces. From homemade chicken
    stock I had in the freezer, I made a veloute sauce to use in the filling,
    lightly seasoned with tarragon, salt and pepper to taste, and a good splash
    of heavy cream.

    I precooked sliced carrots, sauteed onion and celery, along with a small
    clove of garlic. I lightly steamed some asparagus tips and thawed some
    frozen green peas. Also cut a pimiento into small slivers.

    I used shortcrust pastry for both the bottom and top crust. Just before
    baking, I combined the chicken, sauce, and vegetables, filled the bottom
    crust and fitted the top crust, brushed with butter and cream. Baked until
    the crust was deep golden brown and the filling was bubbling.

    It was a really delicious pie, albeit very simple. DAvid ate around the
    parts he doesn't like. :-)

    I'll take some to nuke for lunch tomorrow...

    The pot pie sounds wonderful, Wayne.

    Chicken pot pie is one of my favorite comfort foods. Thanks for
    posting your method.

    Sounds like a great meal, Wayne. Hubby buys those a lot because he
    likes to tear into them for lunch. Now you've given me an idea about
    what to do with the rest of it after he snacks.

    Thanks!

    Why does the Duh'Weenie always type "DAvid"? That's gotta be a "guilt
    typo", the real David is now a fourteen year old that the Duh'Weenie
    has kept imprisoned in a hidden sound proof room since he was a six
    year old milk carton kid.

    <chortle>

    I simply can't imaging slagging the taste of someone who I like in real life
    on a Usenet group, it's very infantile behavior...also a pretty good
    barometer of insecurity, I need say no more as Lil' Wayne's perfervid
    babblings are here for *all* of us to see.

    And I'm continually amused that Lil' Wayne, a 65 year-old "adult", is always
    crying on about "mean" Usenet posters...I mean GOOD GRIEF already..!!!

    It has been a long time since I made a chicken pot pie, but I made one
    when my youngest son was visiting at Christmas, because that is one of
    his favorites. Like someone mentioned, it is comfort food. I really
    enjoyed it. :-)

    It's a comfort food for me, too. Mom used to make both chicken and beef pot
    pies. I always looked forward to them.

    Yes! We're so mean! We constantly pick on him and his questionable
    behavior! What assholes!!

    I just love chicken pot pie, but I have never made one. The last
    time I had pot pie was a turkey pot pie at a local restaurant. It
    was the type that was topped with a square of puff pastry.
    I love the usual pie crust type, but this was really delicious, too.

    If I have it in the freezer, or the time to make "rough puff pastry", I
    will use shortcrust pastry for the bottom and the puff pastry for the top.
    It really is delicious that way.

    I know some folks forego a botttom pastry in pot pies, but to me a pie is
    not a pie without a bottom crust. :-)

    Is rough puff pastry the one that's done in a food processor?

    Like how many people buy a stupidmarket deli chicken and when
    they get it home rather than eating the sorry ass salty thing before
    it gets totally cold hack it all up to begin making something else...
    I mean normal folks buy those things becaue they've been out all day,
    they're hungry, they don't want to get home adn begin prepping
    dindin... I bet none. Obviously while Duh'Weenie was there he stocked
    up on Swanson frozen pot pies... he never bought any deli chicken but
    as is his usual sleazy habit the NAMBLA worm couldn't resist
    concockting yet another fairy tale.

    No, it's a traditional method, but takes less times and there are fewer
    turns, folds, and rollouts than true puff pastry.

    •9 oz (253 g) plain flour
    •Pinch of salt
    •3 oz (84 g) lard or hard vegetable fat
    •3 oz (84 g) butter
    •1 teaspoon lemon juice
    •Water

    1.Sieve the flour and salt into a bowl and add the fat, cut into lumps
    about the size of a walnut. Stir into the flour.

    2.Add the lemon juice and cold water to mix to a stiff dough.

    3.Turn on to a lightly floured board and roll out into an oblong.

    4.Fold one end up, leaving about one-third of the strip to fold down, seal
    the edges with the rolling pin and give the pastry a half turn.

    5.Continue thus until the pastry has been rolled and folded four times.

    6.If possible leave for an hour before using.

    7.Roll out and use for sweet and savoury pastries.
