Skillet Chicken Pot Pie
Why This Recipe Works
To make sure that our skillet chicken pot pie delivered real chicken and vegetable flavor, we built flavor, layer by layer, all in the same skillet. We seared the chicken, developing a deep brown fond (brown bits in the pan bottom), before moving the skillet to the oven, where we roasted the chicken and vegetables. Before topping the pie with our homemade all-butter pie dough, we deglazed the fond to gather up all of its flavor and use it as a building block for the gravy.
