Yet Another Chicken Pie

By Crustabakes

Seems like i can’t think of anything savoury to bake aside from chicken pies.

In fact, this is the third chicken pie within a month of each, the first one HERE, and the second one HERE.

Well, at least this one uses a different crust.

This crust uses sour cream.

And that’s epic.

At least for me.

Because i honestly wasn’t expecting the result i got.

Using sour cream creates a softer, wetter dough. It’s trickier than most of the dough i’ve handled.

But it is also more delicious than most of the dough i’ve handled.

It’s a trade-off.

And i am willing to trade.

The sour cream imparts a fancy twang of .. erm.. sourness into the dough (duh).

I can’t really describe it, but i would say, it made the crust taste somewhat more savoury.

And definitely more appetizing.

It also made me just want to pluck at the crispy, crimped edges around the pie. The edges which tasted really rich, and was light and flaky at the same time.

I almost wanted to run back into the kitchen and make another batch of chicken pie with the same crust.

But i really shouldnt. Cause that would be my FOURTH chicken pie between June and July.

Perhaps some of you can help me think up of savoury ideas other than pies to bake with ?

Thanks in advance!
