We love cast iron in this house. It lasts forever, and it doesn’t leave any gross coatings on your food.
I’ve been wanting to try a pot pie for awhile now, so when I stumbled upon the idea at The Rising Spoon, I knew I had to try it!
Cast Iron Chicken Pot Pie
Adapted from Real Simple, inspired by The Rising Spoon
Chop your vegetables!
Sautee the veggies in olive oil, and then add flour, wine, and milk. After the sauce thickens a bit, add cooked chicken and peas.
Cover with pie crust. I recommend using this recipe from Simply Recipes. If you have a 9 or 10 inch cast iron skillet, half the recipe. If you have a 12 inch skillet, use 3/4 of the recipe. Whip out those math skills, friends! Poke some holes in the top of the crust to serve as vents.
Bake at 400 degrees for 35-40 minutes. Delish!
The bottom line:
Use a cast iron pan. It’ll be great. Follow all of the steps in this Real Simple Recipe, just leave it in the cast iron pan, don’t transfer it to another baking dish. Cover with a pie crust–homemade or store bought will do!
