Cast Iron Chicken Pot Pie


  • 1/4 cup Butter (4 tsp butter powder plus 1/4 cup hot water)
  • 1/3 cup Dehydrated Dried Onions
  • 1/2 cup Dehydrated Carrots
  • 1/3 cup Freeze Dried Celery
  • 2 cups Water
  • 1 tsp Chicken Bouillon
  • 1/4 tsp All Purpose Seasoning
  • 1/4 cup Flour
  • 3/4 cup Freeze Dried Peas
  • 2 cups Freeze Dried Chicken

Crust Topping:

  • 4 cups Flour
  • 3 Tbsp Baking Powder
  • 2 Tbsp Sugar
  • 2 tsp Salt
  • 1 cup Butter, cut into small cubes
  • 1 cup Buttermilk Powder
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 1 Egg (or 2 Tbsp whole egg powder + 1/4 cup water)


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Place your Cast Iron Skillet on your stove top on medium heat, and stir together butter, onions, carrots, and celery, as butter melts. Once butter has melted completely, add water, chicken bouillon, chef tess seasoning, and flour, and bring to a boil, then turn to low heat and simmer until sauce thickens.

Add chicken and peas and stir until all ingredients are completely combined and filling thickens.

Once your filling has thickened, remove skillet from heat and set aside. 

Next, make your topping by combining flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt in a large bowl, then whisking together. Add cubed-up butter and, with a pastry whisk, mix until a crumbly texture forms. Add egg, buttermilk powder, and water, and stir together until a thick dough forms.

Place dough on a floured surface and roll out into a round shape. You want your dough thick and not thin. Place dough on top of your skillet with the filling inside.

Bake at 375 degrees for 35-40 minutes. Remove and allow to cool a bit before slicing and serving.
