An unforgettable chicken pot pie recipe should be on every home-chef's bucket list. Now you can cross this challenge off your list.
The ultimate chicken pot pie features a buttery aromatic crust and a creamy roasted chicken filling.
Mix together flour, salt, and baking soda in a large mixing bowl. Add fresh thyme and rosemary. Cut cold butter into mixture piece by piece until the mixture separates into smaller crumbs. Slowly mix cold water and vegetable shortening in, until the mixture becomes one cohesive ball. Wrap in plastic and keep chilled.
When filling is ready, roll out the dough and line four ramekins with the pastry dough, reserving some dough for the top of the pie. Fill each ramekin with the filling, and cover with pastry dough.
