Chicken Pot Pie | Basics with Babish
The autumnal equinox has long since passed, the fall is upon us, and we must pay tribute. And how better than with a bubbling-hot, veggie-packed, rib-sticking chicken pot pie? Pumpkins are passé, apple-picking is pointless: let's prevent a prosaic pie and properly celebrate the...period in time that it is. Which is fall.

    Does anyone know if I could use store bought puff pastry for the crust? I hate making pastry crust but I don't know if puff pastry is right for this.

    So I've low-key wondered why you keep using and specifying kosher salt for a while now. I thought maybe you were Jewish yourself. But this chicken + cream business puts an end to that, I think. So... why? Why won't any other type of salt do?

    For anyone unhappy with the top-crust-only version that was done here, at least there were no noodles. Apparently, the inclusion of noodles vs crust is a hotly debated thing in Pennsylvania.

    I'm eating to live right now not living to eat, although i LOVE food. I'm so anemic right now that I've lost 50 lbs and can't eat because it makes me so sick (literally). I weigh 85 lbs and fell a week ago smashing my shoulder so now im bionic mum. But your videos give me a light that, once i can use my arm again i can try new, yummy recipes. So thank you! It means more than you know! I live vicariously through your taste buds lol. 💙💙💙

    Honestly, what even is the point if you're going to do that America's Test Kitchen workaround? You might as well just make chicken and biscuits at that point.
