Ingredients for the crust

The ingredients for the crust are as follows:

  • 2 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 cup of unsalted butter, cold and cut into small pieces
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup of ice water

How to prepare the crust

To prepare the crust, mix the flour and salt in a large bowl. Add the butter and use a pastry cutter or your hands to mix until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add the ice water a little at a time and mix until the dough comes together. Divide the dough in half and shape each half into a disk. Wrap the disks in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

Ingredients for the filling

  • 1/2 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 4 cups of chicken broth
  • 2 cups of shredded cooked chicken
  • 1/2 cup of frozen peas
  • Salt and pepper to taste

How to make the filling

Add the flour and stir until the mixture is smooth. Gradually whisk in the chicken broth and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Stir in the chicken and peas and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Assembling the pie

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Roll out one of the dough disks to fit a 9-inch pie dish. Place the dough in the dish and trim the edges. Pour the filling into the crust.
