Chicken pot pie recipe with cannabutter
With so many food-fueled gatherings that will be taking place over the next couple of months, it can be helpful to keep a chicken pot pie recipe on hand, to use leftovers that can be frozen for later. Now, technically you can use any kind of meat in place of the chicken in this dish, but the called for spices best compliment either turkey or chicken, so be sure to make some adjustments if you have beef, ham or some other meat option instead.
Cannabutter offers a simple way to infuse edibles with little to no work, but there are other cannabis concentrates that will work for this task, including cannabis oil, so don’t be shy when experimenting. There is no perfect method, and everyone prefers their own twist on consumption, so utilize anything from THC crystals, oils, or rosin for thicker concentrates. Just don’t forget that regular unaltered buds will need to go through decarboxylation to be effective.
Chicken pot pie recipe
Preparation time: 20 mins
Cooking time: 1 hour
- 2 ready-made pie crusts
- 4 cups of chicken broth (or turkey/vegetable)
- 2 cups of cooked and shredded chicken
- ½ cup of peas (frozen)
- 4 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons of parsley
- 2 tablespoons of cannabutter
- 3 potatoes (peeled and cubed)
- 3 full-sized carrots (chopped and peeled)
- 2 celery stalks (chopped)
- 1 egg
- 1 cooking onion (diced)
- ¼ teaspoon of garlic
- ¼ teaspoon of salt
- ¼ teaspoon of pepper
- Pie pan
- Large saucepan
- Mixing spoon
- Sauce brush
- Small bowl
Preheat the oven to 350°F, and while you wait for it to warm up, toss the cannabutter in a saucepan along with the onion and sauté for two minutes.
Once the onion chunks begin to soften, add the rest of the uncooked raw veggies, and cook everything together over medium heat for 2 minutes.
Sprinkle the flour over the cooking vegetables and mix it in, then wait another 2 or 3 minutes for the combination to thicken.
Add the chicken broth to the saucepan with the veggies and bring the whole thing to a simmer.
Once the saucepan reaches a nice light simmer, toss in the potatoes and cook everything together, stirring the dish frequently until the potatoes are soft.
Now you can season the chicken pot pie filling, with the salt, pepper and garlic.
Finally, add all the chicken and peas to the saucepan and heat the mixture until the peas are defrosted and warm.
Gently fill one of the pre-made pie crusts and use the other to seal everything inside.
Use a knife to cut between 5-8 slices into the upper crust. This step is required to allow for the steam to release as the chicken pot pie cooks, and if you skip this step, your pie could explode. Each slit should be at least 2-4 inches long to be sufficient.
The final step is the eggs coating, which is applied by gently whisking an egg in a small bowl then using a sauce brush to lightly apply it to the entire top surface.
How long do edibles last?
This dish, in particular, is intended to serve 4 adults, and the effects can last for up to 12 hours, which is why it is essential to avoid overconsumption. However, edibles are notoriously known for slowly sneaking up on you, as it takes longer for the body to process the cannabinoids, so always wait at least 2 hours between doses for the safest and most enjoyable experience.
