When I make my pot pies for the biggest awards shows, all the stars ask me for more. Now—with the help of this video, recipe, and shopping list—you can make them easily in your own kitchen. In this recipe, I include complete instructions for poaching the chicken from scratch, which also makes stock to use in the sauce. But you could also start with leftover cooked chicken, turkey, ham, beef, or other protein, and store-bought canned broth or stock. Yes, there are many ingredients; but everything is widely available, and you probably already have many in your pantry or refrigerator. The pies can be assembled up to a day ahead and refrigerated, ready to pop into the oven about half an hour before serving.
