Homemade chicken pot pie

So I want to make some homemade chicken pot pie. I found a pretty good recipe but I don't like the idea of just using biscuits as the top part. Any better ideas? I was thinking maybe a puff pastry or something like that. Does anyone have a good recipe or maybe an idea of what to use?

  • This is the crust portion from the vegetable pot pie recipe I make:

    Crust (double this if you also want crust on the bottom, I like it better that way):
    1 c. flour (I use whole wheat pastry flour)
    1 tsp. salt
    4 tbsp. butter
    1/4 c. shortening (I use earth balance sticks)
    3 tbsp. ice water
    Mix all but the water with a fork until shortening is the size of small peas. Add ice water and mix to pastry consistency. Refrigerate while you mix the filling.

  • what about using ready to use pie crusts? You can get the kind you unroll and bake, just cut them to fit whatever pan you're making your pot pie in.
