Grandma's Chicken Pot Pie

This is a great recipe that I inherited from my grandmother. It is a yummy comfort food for a cold wintry day - like today!

Chicken Pot Pie
(Thanks to Grandma Krick)

1 c. flour
1 t. baking powder
1 egg
pinch of salt
butter the size of a walnut (don't you love these old-time measurements!)
water to moisten the dough so you can roll it
1 small onion, chopped
pinch of parsley
3 large potatoes, peeled and cut in cubes
1 lb. chicken, cooked and cubed

Mix flour, baking powder, egg, salt, butter, and water. Roll out dough and cut into squares. Fill a large soup pot halfway with water. Bring to a boil and keep boiling. Begin adding ingredients in layers - chicken, pot pie dough, potatoes, onions. Repeat as often as needed until all ingredients are added. Finish by adding in parsley.

Cook with lid on for 1/2 hour or until water is absorbed.

Double or triple the dough ingredients dependent
upon the number of people you want to serve.
We found we needed to let it simmer for about 2 hours
for it to reach the correct consistency.
After we finished, we agreed it would have tasted great
with some fresh corn added!
