  • 4 chicken breast halves, or 2 cups leftover cooked chicken
  • Paula Deen Seasoned Salt
  • pepper
  • 2 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 1/3 cup melted butter

Directions

  • Crust:

Beat egg and brush onto each lattice square. Bake at 350 degrees for 5 minutes. Dough will rise and turn light golden brown. Set aside until ready to assemble pies.
  • Filling:
  • Season chicken breasts with seasoned salt and pepper. In about 2 tablespoons oil, Sautee chicken breasts until cooked, cut into chunks and set aside (you may use precooked chicken breasts). In a large saucepan melt butter and slowly add flour stirring until consistency of peanut butter, but not brown like a roux. Slowly add cream and keep stirring. Add chicken base, garlic and onion and stir until thickened. Add peas, carrots and chicken. Remove from heat. In 4 oven- proof bowls, fill with sauce and top each with one of your pre-cooked lattice squares. Bake at 350 degrees for 5 minutes until bubbly. Any remaining pie filling may be frozen.
