Food History Friday: Chicken Pot Pie

A pot pie is a type of pie consisting of a flaky pastry top and bottom pie crust and a filling in the middle. Pot pies can be made with a variety of savory fillings: poultry, chicken, beef, seafood or event plant-based.

In the United States, chicken and beef are the most common pot pie fillings and many recipes vary significantly in their ingredients and preparation. Some people live by the fact that potatoes belong in their chicken pot pie and some people disagree. 

The pot pie is believed to have originated in Ancient Greece and were called Artocreas. An Artocreas is different than the present-day pot pie in that this featured an open pastry shell, but still had a combination of protein and vegetables. The settlers who came to America in the 18th century took their pot pie recipes with them when they moved west. This is a great example of how American food developed because of immigrants and their recipes from the homeland, and we appreciate it!

SupperThymeOK is currently offering two pot pies on our menu: Our classic, chicken pot pie and our slow cooker chicken pot pie.
