CHICKEN POT PIE


Tonight I made a Chicken Pot Pie and used my "pie bird" for the first time.  I bought it last year at a craft fair, and put it up in the cupboard and forgot all about it.


When I was looking for my Wondra Flour, I saw it and it worked perfect.  No leaking on the sides of the pie plate.  The steam came out his beak, and bubbled up around him.

Twelve and twenty black birds baked in a pie??...... NO just one!  HaHaHa.

  1. Dear Wanda, What an adorable idea. It keeps the drippings from spilling and looks so cute.
    I bet this was delicious. xoxo Catherine

    1. It was a quick meal, as I spent the afternoon at the movies. The chicken was Costco's canned chicken breast, canned corn, carrots, frozen peas and some saute onion. Thicken the juice from the canned chicken and whipped up a quick pie crust.
      I love reading and trying your recipes. Hugs.

  4. Your chicken pot pie looks delicious, Wanda! Chicken pot pie is one of my favorite dishes and wow you bake a great looking one. I'll be there for left overs tomorrow. :-)
    I have one of those birds but sadly he's never been used. I hated to create a hole in the center of my pies, but yours looks just fine.
    I will have to take mine off of display and put him to use.
    Have a beautiful rest of the week.
    Joy to you!

    1. Thanks Debbie ~ I was concerned about making a hole in my crust too. But I cut a small slit in the middle of the top crust and carefully put it over his head and gently scooted it down...it worked perfectly. I didn't make any other slits like I usually do.

  7. We nearly bought one of these the other day. Funnily enough we also had a chicken pie, but it was chicken, leek and mushroom in a white sauce. Always a favourite.
