In my family, we call this simple stove top recipe for chicken Chicken Pot Pie. It is not very pie like, but a very classic German/Amish dish. This is one of my very favorites, I learned to make it with my mom when I was little, this will be the first time I wrote it down! I have had it before with carrots, which I do enjoy, but I prefer it best when it is very simple. This is a very inexpensive dish.

Directions

  • Place the chicken into a large pot, and fill with enough water to cover it. Bring to a boil, cover, and cook over high heat until chicken is easily removed from the bone, about 35 minutes. Turn the chicken over once during this time so it will cook evenly. Cutting the chicken into pieces can speed up the cooking process a bit.

  • While the chicken is cooking, cut two of the potatoes into large chunks, and the other potato into very small cubes.

  • When the chicken is cooked, remove it from the water. Pull off the skin, and place all of the chicken meat in a separate dish. Pull the meat apart in long shreds. Reserve the cooking water in a separate container. Discard chicken skin and bones.

  • Pour the chicken broth into the pot, and add potatoes, chicken, salt, and pepper. Pour in 2 to 3 cups of the reserved water. Bring to a boil, and cook for about 15 minutes, until potatoes start to soften. Add 3 more cups of the chicken water, and the noodles. Season with salt-free seasoning blend, salt, and pepper. Cover, and simmer over medium-low heat until the noodles are tender and small potato pieces have dissolved.

This is the same recipe my grandmother has been making for years. I think it is a south central PA staple! I'm partial to it left over when it can thicken up a bit. My M-I-L uses one can of cream of chicken soup instead of the broth and adds it to the chicken broth already in the pot.. This gives it a thick "already left over" texture that I prefer. Read More

I grew up eating this dish. My husband calls it "chicken soup" but we call it chicken pot pie. The pot pie comes from bot boi which is the type of PA Dutch noodles you should use for this recipe. The type of noodles you use can make or break this recipe. The large square eggs noodles are best. They don't gloop up. I've added onion and garlic seasonings to this as well as use a few beef broth cubes. As good as it tastes the first night it's even better the next day because the noodles and potatoes really absorb the juices!! Delicious! Read More

I used all of the ingredients in the recipe I just cooked it a little differently. After the chicken was done I allowed the broth to cool as I wanted to remove the layer of fat. I found that the soup lacked flavour and would benefit from onion parsley and celery. Read More
