Is there anything more classic than chicken pot pie? Made with a buttery flakey crust and fresh delicious chicken, this is the perfect cold weather meal.

For the Crust:
 5 cups all-purpose flour
 2 tsp kosher salt
 10 tbsp Colavita Pure or Extra Virgin Oil
 1 cup unsalted butter, cold
 1 cup (approx) ice water
For the Filling:
 2 cups diced peeled potatoes
 1 ¾ cups sliced carrots
 3 tbsp Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  cup chopped onion
 1 cup all-purpose flour
 1 ¾ cups salt
 1 tsp dried thyme
 ¾ pepper
 3 cups Rachael Ray All-Natural Chicken Stock
 1 ½ cups whole milk
 4 cups cubed cooked chicken
 1 cup frozen peas
 1 cup frozen corn

Combine the flour and salt in a large bowl.


Add the Colavita olive oil and mix until the mixture resembles coarse meal.


Cut the butter into thin slices and toss in the flour mixture to coat.


Dribble ice water in, a tablespoon at a time, mixing just until the mixture can hold its shape.


Gather the dough into a ball and divide into two disks. Wrap the disks tightly, and refrigerate for at least an hour.


Roll each piece of dough out to 1/4” thickness, and fold into thirds. Fold into thirds again, then one more time, and refrigerate for another hour, or freeze for later use (thaw frozen dough in the refrigerator overnight).


Unwrap the dough and roll to about two inches larger than the diameter of your pie dish. We used 4” mini pie dishes, so roll to 6”. You will have 4 tops and 4 bottoms.


Slip the bottoms into the ungreased pie dishes, and prick with a fork. Place them all back into the refrigerator while you prepare the filling.


Preheat oven to 425°.


Place potatoes and carrots in a large saucepan; add water to cover. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cook, covered for 8-10 minutes. Drain. They vegetables should be tender, but still firm. Remember, you will be baking them again in the oven.


In a large skillet, heat the Colavita Olive Oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and saute until translucent, 5 minutes.


Stir in flour and seasonings until blended. Gradually stir in broth and milk. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; cook and stir 2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in chicken, peas, corn and potato mixture; remove from heat.


Add the chicken mixture to the four pie dishes.


Place the dough tops over the chicken filling. Trim, seal and flute edges. Cut slits in tops for the steam to escape.


Bake 35-40 minutes or until crust is lightly browned. Let stand 15 minutes before cutting.
