Slab Chicken Potpie Slab fruit pies are all the rage for summer parties, so why not give classic chicken potpie the same treatment and create buzz at a cool-weather gathering as well. Premade pie crusts and frozen veggies make this chicken dinner easy to prepare without sacrificing flavor.


45 mins


1 hr 30 mins




  • 5 cups unsalted chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons white miso
  • 1 teaspoon ground pepper, plus more for sprinkling
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 large sprigs thyme
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
  • 1 ¼ pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs, trimmed and cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 (24 ounce) package frozen mixed vegetables (peas, carrots and corn)
  • 1 (10 ounce) package frozen pearl onions
  • 1 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 (14 ounce) package frozen whole-wheat pie crusts, thawed
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten


    Step 1

    Combine broth, miso, pepper, salt, thyme and bay leaves in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat. Cook, undisturbed, until reduced to about 4 cups, about 10 minutes. Discard thyme and bay leaves.

    Step 2

    Whisk milk and flour in a small bowl, then whisk into the broth in the pan. Bring to a boil over high heat; cook, stirring occasionally, for 1 minute. Stir in chicken. Remove from heat and let stand for 5 minutes. Stir in mixed vegetables, onions and parsley. Pour the mixture onto a large rimmed baking sheet.

    Step 3

    Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

    Step 4

    Unroll pie crusts on a lightly floured work surface, placing one on top of the other. Roll out into a 14-by-19-inch rectangle. Cut into 2-by-19-inch strips using a decorative wheel or pizza cutter. Place half the strips diagonally across the chicken mixture, leaving 2-inch gaps in between. Weave in the remaining strips to form a lattice pattern. Trim excess dough from the edges and discard. Brush the top of the dough with egg. Sprinkle with pepper to taste.

    Step 5

    Bake until the top is browned and the chicken is cooked through, 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes. Cut into 8 pieces.
