Place two tablespoons of butter into a large skillet and when it’s melted, add two tablespoons of flour. Using a wire whisk, stir in a few tablespoons of the broth, making a thick paste. Gradually add the rest of the broth, a bit at a time, whisking all the while. When it’s thickened but still pourable (you don’t want it to be pasty, a smooth liquid gravy is what you are looking for here), pour about half of it over the chicken pieces. Preheat the oven to 425.

Biscuit Crust

This is the recipe I use for all biscuits, biscuits in the morning, biscuits for shortcake, biscuits for ham and cheese sandwiches. But best of all, biscuits for chicken pie. It’s a fairly standard biscuit recipe except for the Kefir which is a cultured milk, sometimes known as the “champagne of milk” because of its tangy zest. It’s a bit like a thin yogurt and helps give the biscuits an extra lift. If I don’t have Kefir on hand, I sometimes mix half yogurt and half milk and the result is fairly similar. Otherwise, buttermilk will do.

2 cups flour

1 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon sugar

    Edie, this sounds delicious. I’ll have to try it soon-hope the biscuit comes out good (not like my pie crusts). Thanks, Doris

    This sounds so good. Nothing better than chicken pot pie. Have never seen Kefir milk in the supermarket, but I’ll look for it. I definitely can get buttermilk–I love to bake with it.

    Edie, I’ve got to get your book. Is it available on your website?

    Happy eating!

    Yes, go to my website, http://www.edieclark.com, and on the home page there is a link that will enable you to order the book. It’s in some bookstores but mostly available through the website.
    As for the kefir, look in the natural foods section at your supermarket. Or ask them about it. There are several brands. Be sure to buy the plain, not sweetened or flavored. Otherwise, buttermilk is fine (I actually find buttermilk harder to find that kefir!).
    Happy cooking!

    Hello,
    Thank you for the recipe. I am writing you this thanks on the way out of the door to buy ingredients that I need to make this pie for lunch today. I love my Yankee newsletters!
    I will let you know how it turns out.

    Have a great day,

    Yvonne

    When I get Yankee Magazine I try to save Mary`s Farm a little while (a tease) but I don`t have much luck-I`am so anxious to get to it-reminds me of when I was a young girl and Edie`s stories so remind me of all the wonderful meals that my Mom and Grandma put on the table – here on Block Island -where I grew up and still live here-There was always Biscuits for Supper no matter what else we had we always had biscuits and often on top of Chicken or Beef Stew-Depression we had a lot of fish here on the Island-I will be making Chicken Pot Pie in the next few days.As Bob Hope would say-”Thanks for the Memories”

    I have never heard of Kefir Milk, I was raised in GA. so will use buttermilk. I never knew how to make a good from scratch biscuit. Thanks so much. I think this will be wonderful. Thanks for the good receipt, Mary.
