I've been up for 35 hours...got home but had to cook. Of course I didnt pick something easy. Chicken pot pie. 

imageWent with a beer butt ...i don't know how to spathcock a chicken

imageNot very pretty...

imageEnjoyed a stick while cooking.

imageWhat I learned...
Don't thicken the filling too much...it will cook more when crusted.
I had to brown the top with the broiler...even draped with hdaf it wouldn't brown to where i thought it should
Homemade crust is awesome... I'll never buy store bought again. Quick and easy.
Going from scratch this is not a quick cook
Tired as hell cooking on the egg is worth it. A little Cholula hot sauce and this was a great meal. Will do again.
I'll experiment with other ingredients...mushrooms for sure.

Thanks to @Griffin...his site recommended "pioneer woman" website. Just hit it and search ccp and pie crust.

    I said "just about anything". Excludes mountain oysters and balut. I would eat the pie crust though :)

    I was out of carrots so I added in some canned before the top crust.

    And the easiest way to spatchcock a chicken is take kitchen or chicken shears and make a cut on either side of the spine. I just make one cut and cook with the spine on the bird. You could cut the spine out and save it for stock or something later, but  my freezer is full of little animal scrap parts that I forget about. I find it even easier to just cut the chicken in half - one cut along the back and one cut along the length of the breast/keel bone. The 2 halves are easier to handle than a spatchcocked bird which flops around a bit.

     I kinda thought that sounded odd for a minute... how could you hang with Mickey and not know how to spatchcock? Shoulda known better. Just trying to be (overly) helpful :)

    Chronic spatchcocking has it's own issues and associated stigma. I don't think henapple wants to add any more weight to those tired shoulders. Just something 12 oz PBR curls can't solve, ironic scarf or not. He'd need to carry an antique straight razor for his hairy palms just to fit in.

    Not bad at all for a guy operating about 24 time zones out of normal, congrats on not burning the food or your house down!

    When I first saw the title I was thinking Canadian Pension Plan - CPP.......

  • From your title, I thought this was going to be a thread about the Canada Pension Plan.

    That's some good looking pot pie!

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    I'm not fooling about the crust... Super easy. Gave my neighbor some... First thing he texted, you made the crust... Didn't you?

    Nice. I've never made a crust like that, but enjoy making dough for pizza/bread/pretzels. This is going on the todo list for next week.

  • Great looking cook.  I don't thicken the filling at all, just use gravy.  I usually use sausage gravy.
