Chicken Pot Pie help

Jeserf | Oct 9, 2007 07:02 AM

We have half of a leftover chicken from Wegmans, so I wanted to attempt chicken pot pie tonight. And yes, I've got a few basic recipes...

I know I can use frozen puffed pastry and all that, but can someone help with a few questions?

1. Do I have to thaw out the pastry? Do I need an egg wash for it?

2. If I want to add a few potatoes (red bliss), do I have to parboil them, or can i just dice them an add them?

3. Some recipes say add frozen veggies, some recipes say fresh and raw, some say fresh and blanch...which should i use? It seems weird to me to "cook" something like frozen peas before I put them in when they cook in no time.

4. Any other tips appreciated! This includes if you have a special recipe :)
