Spatchcocked chicken for a Pot pie, lots of qview

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

Nothing better than a good chicken pot pie with a crispy crust. Picked up a 6 lb chicken. Should be good for 3 or 4 meals.

 

Started out with Carrots, celery, onions, & garlic.

 

 

 

 

Added some chicken broth.

 

 

 

 

Then put a bunch of garlic & butter underneath the skin.

 

 

 

 

Dusted the bird with Montreal chicken seasoning.

 

 

 

 

Into the smoker with red oak, running about 225.

 

 

 

 

Took about 3 hours to get to 160 IT. Let it rest for 1/2 hour.

 

 

 

 

Onto the board for some surgery.

 

 

 

 

Save the pan juice for stock.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Took the skin off and added it to the stock pan.

 

 

 

 

Had a couple of Judy's buns we toasted with some garlic & parm.

 

 

 

 

We ate the thighs & legs for dinner with rice & veggies and the toasted buns.

I like BBQ sauce on mine.

 

 

 

 

Judy likes it plain.

 

 

 

 

 

Next put the bones & carcass in the stock & boiled it down.

 

 

 

 

 

Strained it.

 

 

 

 

Ended up with about 4 cups of smokey chicken stock.

 

 

 

 

Put it in the fridge to cool, then skimmed the fat off.

Froze 2 cups & kept 2 cups for the gravy for the pot pie.

 

 

 

 

Steamed some mixed veggies. Chopped some celery, onions, & red potatoes.

Two cups of broth for the gravy.

 

 

 

Mixed about 1 cup 1/2 & 1/2, a little flour, & cornstarch with the broth. 

 

Got the filling ready to go & filled up the pie.

 

 

 

 

Baked the bottom half of the crust in the oven. We cheated, we bought a Marie Callander pie crust instead of making one from scratch.

 

 

 

Had too much filling so we saved it for pouring over some toasted rolls later.

 

 

 

 

Put the top crust on & brushed it with egg. Also put 3 slices in the top. Baked at 375 for about 50 minutes.

 

 

 

 

Out of the oven.

 

 

 

 

Rested it for 15 minutes, then the first slice.

 

 

 

 

This was a good one, great flavor, with just enough smoke flavor. Not overpowering.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I will definitely be doing this again. 

 

Thanks for looking,

 

Al

Ya know for a week I have been thinking about a pot pie. That sure looks good!

 

I know it is a difference in times but who would ever consider a 6 lb bird a fryer? LOL  I get 'em every week, its about all you can get here. So with chicken prices, oxtail prices, liver prices, belly prices, I can see a lot more prime ribs.in the future! LOL

Sorry I'm a little late thanking you guys, but with Judy's knee and all I've been a little busy.

 

Thanks Justin & Kevin!!
