How do you know when pot pie crust is done?
Since everything is essentially cooked in this recipe it’s a matter of getting that crust cooked, so once the crust is golden then you know that the pie is finished.
PIE RECIPE HELP I solved the problem with most soggy chicken pot pies – I have you to prebake the bottom crust before filling it with my rich and flavorful chicken and veggie packed filling so the bottom crust won’t get soggy, and then have you bake it again with a top crust until golden brown!
Prevent a Soggy Bottom Pie Crust
- Bake it Blind.
- Choose a Rack.
- Brush the Bottom.
- Use a Cookie Sheet.
- Make a Thicker Crust.
- Add a Layer.
- Fill It While It’s Hot.
Can you overcook pot pie?
Be sure to overcook your pot pie (4 –6 minutes in the microwave) or we cannot guarantee that it will actually be cooked well enough to be safe for you to eat without what some call “food poisoning” but what is known in the business as “edible ouchies.” You may eat your pot pie with a fork or a spoon.
Are chicken pot pies raw?
I choose to use the “healthy” version, as it leaves out some of the yucky ingredients like MSG. It’s a shortcut I don’t want to do without as a busy mom. I used uncooked chicken for this pot pie recipe, but you can also use cooked chicken.
How do you cook a frozen chicken pot pie in a convection oven?
To bake from frozen, preheat oven to 400°F. Place pot pie on a baking sheet, place in middle rack of oven and bake, covered for 30 minutes. Remove the foil from the pie, then continue baking for 35-40 minutes or until top of pie is golden and inside is bubbling.
What would you serve with chicken pot pie?

Can you blind bake Pillsbury crust?
For the instructions below, we’ve used a prepared, refrigerated Pillsbury pie crust from the grocery store, but this blind baking method will also work for a pie crust made from scratch. For a fully-baked crust, bake for 10-12 minutes. Note: Cooking times may vary based on the pie crust recipe you use.
Can you freeze chicken pot pie?
To freeze an unbaked pot pie, assemble it in a pie plate or dish. Place it in the freezer, dish and all. Once frozen, pop it out of the pie plate, wrap in foil and then in freezer-quality plastic wrap. Freeze up to 3 months.
Some recipes suggest you poke holes in the crust to stop it from puffing up. The danger with this is the liquid from your filling can seep down into these holes, making the base soggy. Opt for blind-baking and press the beans down firmly to stop your crust from puffing up.
Let any fillings cool completely before adding them to the pastry case. To prevent a wet filling from making the pastry base soggy, preheat a baking tray and cook the pie on that – the extra heat will set the pastry faster.
The gluten in the flour gives pastry its texture, while fat offers flavour. If the fat melts before a strong gluten structure has formed, the pastry will end up soggy. Overly moist fillings can also contribute to a soggy bottom as the liquid will drop to the bottom of the pie and ooze into the pastry.
How do you thicken up chicken pot pie?
When the pot pie is done you can thicken further if needed by adding a mixture of 1 tablespoon cornstarch with 2 tablespoons water and bring to a simmer.
