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.
How do you know when chicken pot pie is done?
Chicken pot pie should generally be baked, uncovered, in the center of a 350 degree oven for 30 – 40 minutes. The internal temperature should be bubbly, reaching 160 degrees, and the top should be golden brown.
Why is my chicken pot pie runny?
While the pie is baking, prepare your rice. When the pie is ready, remove it from the oven and allow it to cool for about 15 minutes. The filling will be too runny while it is very hot. It needs to cool for a bit and re-thicken.
What would you serve with chicken pot pie?
What to Serve With Chicken Pot Pie
- Roasted Veggies.
- Mashed Sweet Potatoes.
- German Potato Salad.
- Glazed Carrots and Parsnips.
- Corn on the Cob.
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.
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.
What temperature should a chicken pot pie be?
3. Check that the pot pie is cooked thoroughly when an internal temp of 165°F is reached via food thermometer.
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.
What temperature do you reheat a chicken pot pie?
Use an Oven to Heat Up Chicken Pot Pie
- Preheat the oven to 300°F.
- Use aluminum foil to cover the pie, especially the thin crust on the corners.
- Place it in the oven.
- Keep a close eye on the pot to make sure it is not overheated.
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.
How do you fix a bland chicken pot pie?
If you put bland chicken in, bland chicken comes out. Add a little bit of salt to your vegetables while they’re cooking and you’re making the filling. Just a bit at a time though, you don’t want to over salt.
Why is my pie soupy?
Pay attention to bake times: one reason you’ll often end up with a runny fruit pie is simply that it hasn’t been baked long enough. Any thickener you use needs a little time to set up, and people often see their crust turning light brown and think the pie is done when it’s really not.
