How to Make Chicken Pot Pie Crust
There is nothing special about the crust for a pot pie. It is just your standard pie crust that you would use for an apple or cherry pie but filled with your savory chicken, vegetables, and gravy. Now, if the idea of making your own homemade pie dough scares the bejeezus out of you, then please don’t put yourself through that. Just go grab one out of the refrigerator section of your grocery store. Who the heck cares???
Can You Freeze Chicken Pot Pie
You can absolutely freeze an unbaked chicken pot pie. Simply prepare your filling and allow it to cool completely before assembling your pie, then cover it with plastic wrap and freeze it. When it comes time to bake your frozen pot pie, just brush it with some beaten egg wash, lower your oven temperature to 375 degrees and increase your baking time to 80-90 minutes.
Can You Refrigerate Chicken Pot Pie Before Baking
If you need to make your pot pie a day or two ahead of time, go for it. Just be sure to allow your filling to cool completely before topping it with your pie crust. Once your pie is fully assembled, cover the top with plastic wrap and keep it in the fridge until you are ready to bake it, then brush it with egg wash and bake as normal, but add about 5 more minutes to your bake time.
If you want to make these adorable, individual pot pies, all you need is are these adorable white ramekins in your kitchen arsenal!Print
You can freeze your pot pie after assembling and before baking. When you do, just bake it at 375 degrees for 90 minutes.
If you want to make individual pot pies, just use 6 ramekins instead and divide the filling evenly into them. You will need two pie crusts for this instead of one so plan accordingly! Bake them for about 20-25 minutes.
