How to make it

  • Allow pie crusts to come to room temperature just enough to make them easy to work with. Line 2 pie plates, each with a bottom crust.
  • In a soup pot over medium heat, cook the chicken in 4 tbsps of heated oil until done. Scoop the chicken out of the pan with a slotted spoon, and set aside in a large mixing bowl; chill until needed.
  • In the same pot, add a bit more cooking oil if needed, and saute the onions and celery until crisp tender. Add the chicken broth and bring to a boil; then add the frozen mixed veggies. Bring to a boil again and cook for 10 or 15 minutes. Drain this mixture in a large colander, reserving the broth. Mix veggies with cooked chicken.
  • Measure the broth and augment if necessary to make 4 cups. Pour the broth back into the soup pot, add seasonings (except for celery salt) and bring to a boil. Thicken the broth with a slurry made from the cold water and cornstarch. Season with celery salt, to taste.
  • Scoot pot off the burner and combine the chicken/veggie mixture with the gravy. With a slotted spoon, fill each of the pie plates with chicken and veggies. When filled, ladle gravy over, but do not overfill. Top each with a vented crust and crimp edges. Make egg wash with egg yolks and water and brush onto crust surfaces.
  • Bake in a preheated 425F deg oven for 15 minutes. Cover each of the crust rims with a strip of foil – shiny side out – to prevent burning. Reduce oven temperature to 375F deg and continue baking pies for another 30 minutes, or until crusts are a nice golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to rest for about 20 minutes, for ease in handling.
  • Serve with mashed potatoes and biscuits.

    I like the ease and sound of this, although I would probably just dice some potatoes and put them into the pie and forgo biscuits with the crust and all...but sounds tasty for sure.

    Cheers - Lindy
