My friends and I were watching the Barefoot Contessa, and she made a Lobster Pot Pie, I started the argument by saying that it was not true pot pie. Being from Central PA, pot pie to us is a rib sticking concoction of any meat, (but mostly chicken), flat wide "pot pie" noodles and potatos all smothered with gravy. Yes! It is an Amish dish. My Calif friend said that this is only true in PA, and that the rest of the country calls a meat pie, pot pie. Hence my confusion. I keep thinking back to the Swanson's Chicken Pies. They are called just "Chicken Pies". What started this again was the the thread "Best Frozen Chicken Pot Pie. I say it is NOT pot pie if it has a crust.
