Preserving Your Savory Chicken Pies

For those who like to plan ahead, these chicken pies freeze beautifully. Simply cool the pies in their ramekins or containers, then cover with foil or place in a freezer-safe bag. They’ll keep well for 2-3 months. When you’re ready to enjoy, bake straight from frozen at 425°F (218°C) for 10-30 minutes, adjusting the time based on quantity.

Ingredients for Delight

  • ¼ cup (57g) unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup (31g) all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups (473ml) chicken stock
  • ½ cup (118ml) whole milk
  • 1 chicken bouillon cube, crushed
  • 2 cups (250g) shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 ½ cups (195g) chopped carrots
  • 1 ½ cups (195g) diced potatoes
  • 1 ½ cups (195g) chopped celery
  • 1 ½ cups (140g) frozen peas
  • 1 can (15 ounces [425g]) corn
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 pie crusts, shaped into smaller circles
  • 1 egg, beaten (for egg wash)

Crafting Your Pies

  1. Begin by preheating your oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. For the Chicken Filling: Melt butter in a sizable skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in flour and cook for a minute.
  3. Gradually add in chicken stock, milk, and bouillon, stirring until the mixture thickens (about 5 minutes). Fold in the chicken, veggies, and spices, and let simmer on low for 15 minutes. Remove from heat.
  4. Assembling the Pies: Grease four ramekins. Use pie crust dough to cut 4 large (6-inch [15cm]) and 4 small (5-inch [13cm]) circles, re-rolling scraps as needed. Line each ramekin with a large dough circle, fill with the chicken mixture, and top with a small dough circle, crimping the edges to seal. Vent each pie with 2-3 slits and brush with egg wash.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes or until the pies turn a beautiful golden hue, signaling they’re ready to delight your palate.
  6. Embrace the warmth and comfort of these Personal-Sized Savory Chicken Pies, a testament to the timeless appeal of home-cooked meals.
