    Default Chicken pot pie question...

    I love chicken pot pie with that puff pastry (this stuff: Puff Pastry - Home) but my question is can I put it on the bottom and the top of the pot pie or just the top? If that makes sense...

    Hmm...I'm sure you *could* put it on the bottom, but it might be really mushy because that stuff is so delicate. When you make a Wellington recipe (ex. Shrimp Wellington Recipe - Allrecipes.com) the mixture is typically not "soupy" like pot pie can be, so it works having it in a pouch (turnover?) like that. For pot pie, though, I'd just put it on the top if I were you. JMHO of course Maybe someone else here has tried it. I'm curious now, too lol.

    Next time try pricking the bottom crust numerous times with the tines of a fork.
    Then weight down the crust and bake.
    Add your filling and top crust and bake.

    Hope this helps!

    We have homemade chicken pot pie at least 2X a month. I've never had any trouble with putting a crust on the bottom. I make the crust myself (oil pastry -flaky).

    Oh, no, I agree. Regular crusts work fine. I've always poked mine with a fork (just the way my mom taught me to make all pies I guess lol) and they're just fine. AnW1819 was using puff pastry, though. It's got a different texture, and bakes differently. They're super yummy, just a bit delicate. If I had to place the texture/consistency, I'd say it's between regular pie crusts and phyllo dough.

    BF loves pot pies. I usually have about 2 pieces of it (one for dinner on two different nights) and he demolishes the rest of it lol. I haven't made it in awhile though because it's been too hot to do it. He wanted one for labor day LOL! Um....no. Let's do something on the grill
