This Pennsylvania Dutch Style Chicken Pot Pie is my family favorite recipe! I was born and raised in central PA. So PA dutch food is my absolute favorite. This recipe is partly my Mom’s. I just do it a bit different than her.
Since I am married to a man who was born and raised in the South. He is always making comments about this not being real Pot Pie! He cracks me up.
However, it’s PA dutch style and it’s amazing!
If you like noodles, potatoes and chicken. This is for you! It does take time however it’s so worth it! I usually get two meals out of a whole chicken. So use some of the chicken for a regular meal and then do the instructions below for another meal. Talk about being frugal!
A tip for you: To thicken the broth of anything you are making.
- Place 2 Tbsp in about 8 ounces of water.
- Shake or stir well then add to the boiling water slowly.
I use this, it’s perfect for it!
Take time to make this. You won’t regret it!
This is a PA dutch style chicken pot pie. This does not include a crust!
- 4 cups boneless, skinless chicken from a whole chicken
- broth from cooking the chicken
- 2 cups water
- 2 chicken bouillon cubes
- 1 onion - chopped
- 4 cups diced potatoes (usually 2-3 potatoes)
- 1 bag/box bowtie noodles (you can use any style noodle)
Place broth, water, and bouillon cubes in large pot. You don't have to boil here but it seems to taste better when I boil this for about 30 minutes before I add the next step.
Add chopped onion and diced potatoes* to pot and boil until tender, about 20 minutes.
Add the bag of noodles and the cooked chicken to pot and boil until the noodles are tender.
This is where you can thicken the broth if you'd like I shared in the post above.
Cover pot and take off the burner. Let sit until thickened.
*you can use the frozen diced potatoes here, you just don't need to cook as long!
