Log Cabin Chicken Pie

I first sampled this recipe years ago at Lazarus Department Store, in Columbus, Ohio.  I then discovered this recipe in a very old cookbook I have, "Pillsbury's Best 1000 Recipes Best of the Bake-Off Collection".  The winner of this recipe stated that Abraham Lincoln stopped at her great, great grandparents' log cabin where this pie was served.  It really is tasty.  May you enjoy this slightly adapted recipe!

1 pie shell, partially baked at 425 degrees for 10 minutes

1/2 cup chopped celery
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
2 Tablespoons chopped onion
3 Tablespoons butter
3 Tablespoons flour
1 1/2 cups chicken stock
1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
3 cups cubed cooked chicken

1 cup bread crumbs (2-3 slices)
1/4 cup melted butter
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon poultry seasoning

Saute the celery, green pepper, & onion in the 3 tablespoons of butter in a large skillet about 5 minutes.  Blend in the flour & then add the chicken stock, poultry seasoning & salt to taste.  Cook, stirring constantly, until thickened.  Stir in the chicken & simmer.

Combine the bread crumbs, melted butter & the salt, pepper & poultry seasoning.

Pour the hot chicken mixture into the partially baked pie crust.  Top with the crumb mixture.  Bake at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes.

    And just think President Lincoln sampled it.
    I will certainly make this pie.

  3. This looks and sounds amazing, Kitty. We LOVE Chicken Pot Pie and this sounds like something a tad different.
    Thanks so much for the recipe.

  4. I love Chicken Pot Pie. This looks delicious.

  5. The fundamental elements of a kitchen are to store, plan and cook food and to wrap up related jobs like dishwasher heavy light blinking and draining
