Pennsylvania style chicken pot pie
What Makes Pennsylvania-Style Chicken Pot Pie Totally Unique
Pennsylvania-style pot pies, also known as Pennsylvania Dutch or Amish chicken pot pies, are made with homemade noodles instead of crust, closely resembling chicken noodle soup.
The noodles, made from flour, shortening, salt, and sometimes eggs and milk, absorb the chicken fat as they cook, becoming tender dumplings.
The base of the dish is like a chicken soup, made with chicken, onions, carrots, and other aromatics, but it’s left brothy instead of thickened with flour.
Though this dish lacks a crust, it still captures the essence of traditional pies as it’s a mixture of toppings and remains a comforting and warm dish.
