Although it’s challenging to improve upon our favorite classic comfort foods, like chicken pot pie, we believe we deserve to give ourselves a little pat on the back for making this dish even better by adding our cheddar cheese and baking it right into the crust. We think it’s pretty genius and you just might too. Don’t be surprised if this cheesy chicken pot pie quickly becomes a new family favorite. Try it out and share the recipe with friends and family on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, and Twitter.
Chicken pot pie is definitely a labor of love, as it’s pretty time-consuming to make - but so well worth all of the effort. Do yourself a huge favor and plan ahead to have all of the ingredients that are listed below (for both the cheddar crust and the filling) prepped and ready to use.
Begin by making the crust per instructions below, using Cabot Unsalted Butter and either shredded Cabot Farmhouse Reserve White Cheddar or Cabot New York Extra Sharp Cheddar. Once dough is made, flatten it into a disk, wrap with plastic, and refrigerate for at least 45 minutes, or overnight. Then cook the chicken as instructed in step 2 below and cut into cubes once it has cooled.
Next, preheat your oven to 400°F, coat a deep dish pie pan with cooking spray, and set it on a foil-lined rimmed baking sheet. Cook the vegetables as directed below, adding the chicken, peas, and herbs toward the end. Once completed, transfer the chicken mixture to the prepared pie pan.
Remove the crust dough from the refrigerator, roll out, and drape over the chicken mixture, as detailed in recipe. Bake the pot pie in the center of the oven for about 30-35 minutes, until the top is golden brown. Sprinkle on the remaining 2 ounces of cheese and return to the oven until cheese melts. Let cool before serving.
