1 pound cooked Pheasant, diced or shredded
Allegro Marinade (Game Tame is my favorite for this)
1/4 cup unsalted butter
2 refrigerated pie crusts
1 ½ cups boiled potatoes, diced
1 cup carrots, sliced
1 zucchini, diced
3-4 celery stalks, sliced
1 chicken bouillon cube, crushed
1 cup milk
2 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
Celery Salt, to taste
1 egg, beaten
2. Cook pheasant in whatever manner you choose. Pheasant does tend to get pretty dry, so I prefer to cook it low & slow in a crock pot covered with chicken broth until done. Once done, dice or shred pheasant and set aside until ready to prepare pot pie.
3. For the veggies: Sauté carrots and celery in olive oil until it just starts to get a tad soft, then add the zucchini as well. Set aside until ready to prepare pot pie. (*NOTE: You can use whatever veggies you choose. Frozen peas would be a great addition, but I’m not crazy about peas, so I substituted them with the Zucchini instead.)
4. For the potatoes: Dice them pretty small and boil in water until just soft but still pretty firm. Set aside until ready to prepare pot pie.
5. Preheat oven to 375
6. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt butter.
7. Add flour, whisk and cook for 1 minute.
8. Add chicken broth, milk and crushed bouillon.
9. Simmer until thickened, stirring often (about 5 minutes).
10. Add veggies, boiled potatoes and pheasant, mix well. (*NOTE: This recipe may make enough filling that you could make 2 pot pies, so if that’s the case, either be prepared by having another 2 pie crusts available for another pie, or, put the rest of the filling in a Ziploc bag and freeze. Thaw out and fill pie crust & bake.)
11. In a 9-inch pie pan, add the bottom pie crust.
