Cape Cod Chicken Pie Recipe Cooking Tips

Place chicken in a large pot. Add water, 2 teaspoons salt, onion, carrot and celery.
Simmer, covered, 45 minutes to 1 hour or until chicken is tender. Remove from broth;
strain and reserve broth. Place chicken on a rack in a bowl; cool enough to handle.
Prepare dough and refrigerate 30 minutes before rolling out. Remove and discard skin
and bones from chicken. Cut meat into small pieces; refrigerate. In a cup, blend flour,
onion salt, celery salt, salt, pepper and 1/2 cup reserved chicken broth until smooth. In a
large heavy saucepan, bring 3 cups chicken broth to a boil. Add flour mixture, beating
with a whisk to prevent lumping. Cook, stirring, over medium heat, until mixture is
thickened and smooth. Add chicken. Preheat oven to 400F (205C). On a lightly floured
board, roll out half of dough to fit a 9-inch, deep-dish, pie pan. Line pan with dough. Fill
with chicken mixture. Roll out remaining dough for top crust. Cover chicken mixture
with top crust. Seal and flute edges. Make several slits for steam to escape around edge
of top crust. Bake 45 minutes or until browned. Makes 6 to 8 servings.

Note: Remaining broth may be frozen or used to make a gravy to serve with the pie Cape Cod Chicken Pie Recipe.
