  • 2 pods Pappy’s Pie Dough, thawed but still chilled
  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast
  • 1 can (14.5 oz) chicken broth
  • 3 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 3 cups carrots, peeled and diced
  • 1 package (9 oz) frozen peas and pearl onions
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch


  1. Start by ensuring your Pappy’s Pie Dough pods are thawed but still chilled for the perfect texture.
  2. Place the chicken breasts in a saucepan with the chicken broth and let them simmer until they’re fork-tender.
  3. Remove the chicken from the broth and add the diced carrots and potatoes. Cook them over low heat until they’re tender and full of flavor.
  4. Chop the chicken breasts into bite-size pieces and add them back into the simmering broth, carrot, and potato mixture.
  5. It’s time to bring in the frozen peas and pearl onions, stirring them in gently.
  • In a small bowl, mix the cornstarch with 1/2 cup of water, then pour it into the broth mixture to help thicken the filling to perfection.
  • If necessary, adjust the thickness of the filling with additional water. Remember, it will thicken slightly during baking. Once you have the perfect consistency, transfer the filling to a casserole dish or divide it among four individual serving pie dishes.
  • Preheat your oven to 425°F. Stack the two pods of Pappy’s Pie Dough and roll out the dough large enough to cover your casserole dish or individual pie dishes.
  • Gently lay the dough over the top of the casserole, fitting it just inside the rim. Fold the edges under and crimp them for a lovely, rustic appearance. Don’t forget to cut steam vents into the crust to ensure a crispy finish and prevent a messy oven!
  • Place the pot pie on the bottom oven rack and bake for approximately 20-25 minutes, or until the crust is a beautiful golden brown.
  • If you’re a planner, you’ll love that this chicken pot pie recipe can be prepared ahead of time and frozen for later baking. Simply follow the instructions up to step 9, then wrap and freeze. When you’re ready to enjoy, bake it according to step 10, adding a few extra minutes if needed.

Apple pie is a classic dessert that is enjoyed all year round, but especially during the fall season. If you’re looking for an old-fashioned apple pie recipe that will remind you of grandma’s baking, then this is the recipe for you. In this recipe, we use Pappy’s Pie Dough, which is a pre-made pie crust that is easy to use and produces a flaky crust that is perfect for apple pie. We recommend using tart baking apples such as Haralson or Granny Smith for the best results.


  • 4 pods of Pappy’s Pie Dough, thawed but still chilled
  • 5-7 tart baking apples
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • Dash of salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons butter


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Ensure your Pappy’s Pie Dough Crusts are thawed, but still chilled.
  2. For each crust (top and bottom), roll out on a floured surface to about 12” in diameter and ¼” thick. (You’ll likely need more than one pod for each crust if you are using a deep dish pie tin).
  3. Place the bottom crust in a 9″ pie pan with the crust overlapping the sides.
  4. Core and pare the apples. Slice them thinly.
  5. In a large mixing bowl, mix the sugar, flour, salt, spices, and apple slices. If the apples are not tart, add 1 tablespoon of lemon juice.
  6. Place the apple mixture in the pie crust and dot with butter. Place the top pie crust layer on top and crimp the edges.
  7. Make 1″ slits or with a fork in 3 or 4 places on top of the crust for steam vents. Sprinkle the top crust with large crystal decorator’s sugar for a professional look.
  8. Bake at 400°F for 50 minutes.
  9. Cool on a rack to let set prior to serving warm or at room temperature.

This recipe is easy to follow and will produce a delicious, old-fashioned apple pie that is sure to impress your family and friends.
