Directions

Pie Crust Method
1. Start by measuring out 150 grams of all-purpose flour, and whisk together with 1 teaspoon of kosher salt and 1 stick (113 grams) of refrigerator cold butter. Using 2 knives or a pastry cutter, mash the butter into pea-size pieces.
2. Measure out 50 grams of ice-cold water, adding 1-2 tablespoons to the flour at a time as necessary.
3. Using a rubber spatula, begin bringing everything together and eventually use your hands to massage everything into one cohesive ball of dough. Make sure not to over-knead leading to a tough pie crust. Once it holds its shape, wrap in plastic wrap tightly pressing into a disc and refrigerating for at least 1 hour.
4. If using a food processor, combine 150 grams of all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon of kosher salt, fix the shredder disc, and feed a frozen stick of butter through the feeding tube. Repeat steps 2-3.
5. Remove the dough from the fridge and place onto a generously floured work surface along with flouring the dough and beginning to bang out the dough with a rolling pin repeatedly until the dough is double its size.
6. Begin rolling the dough out until it is about ⅛ of an inch thick. Using a plate, cut the dough into the desired shape, and optionally cut heart shape pieces out.
7. Place onto a parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
8. Brush the crust down with a beaten egg, place the heart cut-outs back on top, and sprinkle with flaky salt.
9. Bake at 375°F for 10-15 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Let cool completely on a wire rack.
Chicken Pot Pie Method
1. Start by melting 2 tablespoons of butter in a 10” cast iron skillet. Once sizzling and foamy, add in the chicken breast (white meat) and sautée for 2-3 minutes. Remove and set aside.
2. Add in another 2 tablespoons of butter, once melted add in ½ a chopped onion and sautée for 2-3 minutes before adding chopped aromatic vegetables like celery, carrots, and parsnips. Sautée over medium heat for 5 minutes.
3. Once is has softened and the color has developed, add in 1 tablespoon of chopped thyme and sautée for 30 seconds.
4. To thicken, add 4 tablespoons of all-purpose flour and sautée together for 1-2 minutes before optionally deglazing with ¼ cup of white wine or dry sherry. Cook for 1 minute or until the alcohol smell is gone.
5. Slowly add in 2 cups of chicken stock by pouring small splashes at a time mixing until a thick paste is formed before adding more stock.
6. Add the chicken back to the skillet and bring to a simmer for 5 minutes before adding a few pinches of kosher salt and a few twists of freshly ground black pepper.
7. Kill the heat and add in a few tablespoons of freshly chopped parsley, ½ cup of frozen peas, and ¼ cup of heavy cream. Mix until thoroughly combined. Taste for seasoning then set aside covered while making the pie crust.
8. Gently shuffle the cooled pie crust onto the top of the filling and bake at 400°F for 10 minutes.
9. Let cool before slicing and serving.
10. Frozen Dark Meat Chicken Pot Pie Method:
11. Start by cutting the dark meat into bite-size pieces.
12. Place into a pan and sautée in a little oil until the chicken has developed a little color.
13. Add in the aromatics and then the stock and let everything simmer for about 20 minutes.
14. To thicken, mix together 2-3 tablespoons of cornstarch and ½ cup of cold chicken stock until completely homogenous.
15. Slowly stream in the cornstarch and chicken stock while mixing the filling and cook for 3 minutes. Season to taste and add in chopped parsley then set aside to cool.
16. For the frozen pies, use the scrapes of the dough from earlier or double up the pie crust recipe and cut little rounds out of the dough. Make sure the rounds are a little larger than the intended serving vessels. Use ramekins for this method.
17. Fill each ramekin with an even amount of filling before topping off with the crust.
18. Wrap in plastic wrap and freeze up to 3 months.
19. When ready to bake, unwrap and bake 400°F for about 30 minutes, wrap in plastic wrap then unwrap, make 3 small cuts into the crust, and brush with a beaten egg before baking for additional 20 minutes until golden brown.
