This my friends is rustic dining at it's finest! Hearty, with lots of chicken & vegetables, the wondrous flaky crust, moist stuffing, & tasty gravy. Then topped with mashed potatoes, what is not to love? This would be great for the family & yet delicious for guest to sit around your table & rave over! Truly a GREAT MEAL!The Amish make a dish almost like this for their wedding guest! A layer of filling, vegetables turkey or chicken, gravy, & then the mashed potatoes all baked in a 9x13 pan. I took that idea & made it into this scrumptious pie. Therefore the name Amish Wedding Supper Chicken Pie!
Just look at that pie! My oh my, I could not wait to slice into it! Served up in nice wedges too! If you do not have stuffing or filling as we call it, do not dismay this would still be wonderful, just not as wonderful as it was with stuffing!
This is what Blind Baking will do for your bottom crust! See how brown & crispy it gets! Not wet soggy dough but a flaky crispy brown & the entire bottom crust will be just like this!
3 Cups Cooked Leftover Chicken
1 to 1 & 1/2 Cups Leftover Stuffing
1 Cup Leftover Vegetables ( any) I used Peas & Carrots!
1 & 1/2 Cups Leftover Gravy or used bought!
3 Cups Leftover Mashed Potatoes or use Instant!
1 Single Pie Crust ( I had one from my Apple Crumb Pie in the freezer that I thawed. Make a Single Crust Pie or use a bought frozen crust.
1 Beaten Egg
First Blind Bake your crust for 10 minutes at 350 degrees! To do this roll out crust & place in your 9 or 10 inch deep pie pan. Lay foil or parchment gently in the crust to make a liner. Fill with 2 cups raw rice. Bake as I mentioned. Once the 10 minutes are over. Remove from the oven & GENTLY remove foil & rice now PROCEED!
Gently distribute stuffing or as we call it FILLING over the blind baked crust. Now spread out the drained leftover vegetables. Now spread out the chicken meat that you have cut into bite sized pieces. Spread the gravy over the chicken. Stir the cold leftover mashed potatoes to break them up. Add the egg & stir until potatoes are somewhat spreadable. Now dollop the potatoes over the gravy! Bake 350 degrees for about 40 minutes or until the potatoes are lightly browned & the pie filling is bubbling! Let sit for a few minutes before serving! NOW DIG IN!!! This is a lot like the casserole our local Amish serve at Amish Weddings. They would use Turkey or Chicken & so could you. They would not bake this in a pie shell but layers this in a 9x13 pan & bake. You may want to try it that way but I was hungry for a Meat Pie & had these leftovers from Sunday! Consider this a cross between a Meat Pie & a Shepherds Pie but no matter which THIS IS GOOD EATING!
