Tex-Mex Chicken Pot Pie
Level: Intermediate
Total: 2 hr 5 min (includes chilling and cooling time)
Active: 1 hr 5 min
Yield: 4 to 6 servings


4 tablespoons salted butter
2 jalapeño peppers, stemmed, seeded and diced
2 poblano peppers, stemmed, seeded and diced
2 corncobs, kernels removed
1 large yellow onion, diced
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
2 cups chicken broth
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
2 canned chipotle peppers, chopped
3 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
1/2 recipe Perfect Pie Crust, recipe follows, or your favorite pie crust
All-purpose flour, for dusting
1 large egg, beaten
1/2 cup grated pepper jack cheese

Perfect Pie Crust:

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) salted butter, cut into small pieces
3/4 cup vegetable shortening, cut into small pieces
1 large egg
1 tablespoon distilled white vinegar
5 tablespoons cold water, or more as needed


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Melt the butter in a 10-inch skillet over medium heat. Add the jalapeño and poblano peppers, corn and onion. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook to soften the vegetables, 2 to 3 minutes.


Sprinkle the flour over the vegetables and stir until the flour has coated the vegetables, a minute or two (avoid letting the flour stick to the bottom of the skillet). Stirring constantly, slowly add the chicken broth. Stir in the cream, cilantro and chipotle peppers. Allow the sauce to come to the boil and thicken, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat, then taste and adjust the seasoning. Add the chicken and stir to combine.

Roll out the Pie Crust on a lightly-floured surface to an 11-inch circle, large enough to hang over the skillet. Carefully lay the crust over the skillet, pressing gently into the sides to seal. Brush the top with the beaten egg and sprinkle over the pepper jack cheese. Cut 2 to 3 small slits in the top and bake until the crust is golden, about 30 minutes. Cool slightly before serving, 10 minutes or so.

Perfect Pie Crust:
Yield: 2 pie crusts

Combine the flour, salt, butter and shortening in a large bowl.


Using a pastry cutter, gradually work it all together until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Beat the egg with a fork and add it to the mixture along with the vinegar.

Add the cold water.

Stir it all together until it comes together, adding another tablespoon or two of water if it needs the moisture.

Form the mixture into 2 balls and wrap them in individual plastic bags. If using immediately, chill for 20 minutes in the refrigerator before rolling out. If freezing, remove them from the freezer 30 minutes before you are ready to use them.
