Chicken Pie

27 Dec

Hello Everyone,

Here’s a recipe I really like!!!

Chicken Pie:

Crust:

3 cups all-purpose flour

1-1/2 tsp. salt

1 cup butter (2 sticks) 8 oz.

1/4 cup ice water

Filling:

8 chicken breast halves

1/4 cup unsalted butter (1/2 stick) 2 oz.

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

2-1/2 cups chicken broth

1-1/2 tsp. salt

1 tsp. ground thyme

1 tsp. dried marjoram flakes

1 tsp. rubbed sage

1/2 tsp. black pepper

1 lb chicken sausage, browned

5 slices bacon, cooked and broken into 1-inch pieces

1 egg yolk

1 tsp. water

Crust:

Sift flour and salt into a medium bowl. Using a pastry blender, cut butter into flour mixture until mixture resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle water over dough, mixing quickly just until dough forms a ball. Divide in half. Press half of dough into and up sides of lightly greased 2-quart round baking dish. Cover with plastic wrap: refrigerate baking dish and remaining dough.

Filling:

Cook chicken breast in salted boiling water in a large stockpot. Remove from water and cool. Remove meat from bone and tear into bite-size pieces. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in flour. Stirring constantly, cook until mixture thickens and bubbles. Gradually stir in chicken broth. Stir in salt, thyme, marjoram, sage and pepper. Cook stirring constantly, until mixture thickens (3-4 minutes). Preheat oven to 350 degrees. On a lightly floured surface, use a floured rolling-pin to roll out remaining dough. Layer half of chicken in bottom of dough-lined baking dish. Layer sausage and bacon over chicken. Top with remaining chicken. Pour sauce over meat. Top with remaining rolled out dough. Trim dough and crimp edges of pie. Cut slits in top of pie for steam to escape. (If desired, roll out dough scraps and use a cookie cutter to cut out a decoration for top of pie. Apply cutout to pie with a small amount of egg yolk.) Bake pie for 1-1/2 hours. Combine egg yolk with water and brush over top of crust. Bake 5 minutes more.

I didn’t go to the ultrasound today I made the app for Friday, since Ray is off work and can drive me there. My eyes are getting really bad. The swelling from the lymph nodes makes it hard for me to see. I am afraid I am getting another blood clot in my leg, the pain is back.. I was going to go see my dad today, but I didn’t feel safe driving…
