FABBY: Lattice Chicken Pot Pie

Hello sweet friends!

           Yesterday, while I was grocery shopping, I saw in one of the shelves of my local supermarket a Lattice Roller. I said, just perfect for all my pies, so they can look pretty and dressed up! Anyway, I made a chicken pot pie today for dinner from a very old recipe from an English friend of mine and of course, I tried my new Lattice Roller.

Here are some pics and the recipe of the pie dough, which is fabulous, because I know you all have the chicken filling recipe, and of course, you can use the store bought dough, or puff pastry as well and work with this fun gadget, which also makes you look like you've been 'slaving' with the net-like pattern, all day!

Here I have the pie ready to go on the oven, but needing to place the 'latticed dough' on top.

First: knead dough in a circle, not to thin and not to thick either, and what you
  do is simply press cutter and roll over dough and pull apart for quick, easy effect.

The brand on the box of the cutter said: Lattice Roller-KitchenPro. (made in China for $2.50)

Than you pull apart the dough with your hands to open and the lattice is formed, criss-cross fashion...using both your hands. (I had no one to help me so there's no pics of this part). Place the dough on top of pie, like here. Trim excess dough hanging around the pie edge with a kitchen scissors, as it comes out neatly this way.

Here is all baked and looking pretty, my hubby's favorite comfort food, but I love it too!

Cover the edges with aluminum foil, half way through baking so it doesn't burn.

This is my first, net-like try at this lattice dough, but I know I will do a prettier job next time.

I also just found 6 blue and white Wedgwood salad plates, 6 soup plates and six dinner plates...all Wedgwood English transfer ware. I'm so happy to add more to my collection!

Blue and White transfer ware is so pretty, I just love it! I'm thinking of making a dinner party with some friends and use them again, as now I have 14 dinner plates.

Ready for dinner with chicken soup I made from cooking the chicken breast for the pie filling.

Let me tell you, it was great and it's hubby's favorite, ever! I love this 'home made dough for pies,' which I am sharing it bellow. You could use the cutter with puff pastry too, or store bought pie dough.

Thank you so much for visiting me, as you always make my day and posting sooo very worth it!

Thank you gracious hostesses for having me at your great parties.


Pate Brisee Pie Dough

1 1/4 Cup flour  (all purpose)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. sugar
1/2 Cup cold butter
5 Tablespoons cold water

Place all the ingredients in the Cuisinart, butter and cold water last, a tablespoon at a time.

To make the bottom and top crusts, you must double the recipe quantity.

Take half of your dough to a slightly floured table and roll it into a circle. Place it in a pie dish, with some raw beans. Take it to the oven for 15 minutes at 325F. Take it out and prepare the second disk of dough, where you press the Lattice Roller and roll up and down. It should look like the first pic.

Cover the pie dish with the chicken filling and top with the prepared lattice dough top and take it to the oven for 45 minutes at 325F. Half way through cooking, take out pie and cover the edges with aluminum foil. Place in oven again and finish baking.

Use the filling of your choice, say chicken, meat or fruit.

Enjoy it!

  1. Oh wow, Fabby, this looks amazing and your lattice is so beautiful. I would so love this. Hugs, Marty

  2. Not only does it look good, just by looking at the ingredients, i bet it tastes delicious!!!!! Thanks Fabby!

  3. Oh how I love chicken pot pie. Your's looks like a true work of art! Mine tend to look slapped together, which is what they are. LOL.

  4. Fabby, I can only imagine how tasty this is! Looks wonderful and oh so pretty a lattice chicken pot pie.

    Sweet Autumn Blessings,

  5. Fabby-I love the way that pie crust looks. I can remember cutting strips by hand to make lattice topping. What a neat little tool.

    I love those Wedgewood transfer ware pieces you picked up, Fabby. They are gorgeous.

    I have never baked a crust with raw beans in it! I suppose it acts as a weight to keep the crust from bubbling up? I usually just prick it all over with a fork.

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend- xo Diana

  6. I wish I had some of this beautiful pot pie! It looks so good. xo

  7. Love your dishes! Your pie lattice is so pretty. Maybe I will finally learn how to make a proper pie crust. I have always struggled with it.

  8. Sorry bout that, thought I'd already hit the Follow/Friend button.
    I just realized you're in Ecuador...
    Well...if ya win it'll get there some how 8) In the real world I am a Master Floral Designer, we get a lot of flowers and foliages from your country..Ecuadorian Roses are the best!

  9. Dearest Fabby,
    This post is hilarious; you made me laugh really hard! The taste of your pie, no doubt has been yummy. My laughing started when you said to cut the excess dough with some scissors. Well said but somewhere in-between the time of baking it in the oven, a kitchen-monster must have taken a good bite out of one side.
    But for a first try you did really well and you are daring enough for posting it as is. Kudos to you sweet lady.
    Hugs and happy weekend and I go to bed. Just baked Italian Amaretti cookies and made some chocolates with dried apricots... messy job!

  10. Beautiful chicken pie! and even more special when served on a blue plate!

  11. The lattice looks so pretty Fabby! Yes preparing something like this, and managing to take pictures is quite a challenge :), but you've done a great job :) I too love taking pictures of cooked food especially those which are colourful!

  12. Hi Fabby, wow the roller makes the pot pie look so beautiful and too pretty to eat. I bet it tasted so yummy. Wishing you a wonderful weekend and thanks for sharing this recipe.

  29. Oh, Fabby, your making my mouth water with the looks of your pot pie. Blessings!

  30. We are not very pieish in my country... I don't know why but it's very rare to cook pies or see pies for sale in store for example.
    A few years ago I'd never seen a cupcake up close.
    I guess it depends on the peoples that conquered and left their culture richness behind... no pies from the Moorish people I guess ahahahah
    And I've seen that object and wondered what did it serve to?! Now I know and now I want to be home, cooking a pie and using the cutter I'll be buying first opportunity.
    Hope you have a wonderful Sunday enjoying your lovely Pie.

  31. This looks divine and so pretty too! Thanks for sharing at Mix it up Monday :)
