Simple Stovetop Amish Chicken

IamPatSajak 0

"In my family, we call this simple stove top recipe for chicken Chicken Pot Pie. It is not very pie like, but a very classic German/Amish dish. This is one of my very favorites, I learned to make it with my mom when I was little, this will be the first time I wrote it down! I have had it before with carrots, which I do enjoy, but I prefer it best when it is very simple. This is a very inexpensive dish."

  1. Place the chicken into a large pot, and fill with enough water to cover it. Bring to a boil, cover, and cook over high heat until chicken is easily removed from the bone, about 35 minutes. Turn the chicken over once during this time so it will cook evenly. Cutting the chicken into pieces can speed up the cooking process a bit.
  2. While the chicken is cooking, cut two of the potatoes into large chunks, and the other potato into very small cubes.
  3. When the chicken is cooked, remove it from the water. Pull off the skin, and place all of the chicken meat in a separate dish. Pull the meat apart in long shreds. Reserve the cooking water in a separate container. Discard chicken skin and bones.
  4. Pour the chicken broth into the pot, and add potatoes, chicken, salt, and pepper. Pour in 2 to 3 cups of the reserved water. Bring to a boil, and cook for about 15 minutes, until potatoes start to soften. Add 3 more cups of the chicken water, and the noodles. Season with salt-free seasoning blend, salt, and pepper. Cover, and simmer over medium-low heat until the noodles are tender and small potato pieces have dissolved.

My Grandma used to make this for over family and it is soooo good! I modified the recipe by using boneless skinless chicken breasts and adding a little wyler's chicken boullion for extra flavor.

This is the same recipe my grandmother has been making for years. I think it is a south central PA staple! I'm partial to it left over when it can thicken up a bit. My M-I-L uses one can of cre...

This was the one of the best chicken recipes that my wife and I have tryed, matter afact the amish lady's are very wonderful cook.

I tried this recipe for me and my husband and we didn't like the taste of everything mixed together. Overall not very good, wouldn't make it again.

I grew up eating this dish. My husband calls it "chicken soup" but we call it chicken pot pie. The pot pie comes from bot boi which is the type of PA Dutch noodles you should use for this reci...

My husband is a very picky eater and he really likes this soup.

this was a simple wholesome meal very filling. gave it four stars but only because the noodles that i used went a bit gloopy!!!

This recipe turned out really great! My husband is from Lancaster PA, so he knows what traditional pot pie tastes like and he loved it! I used the square noodles as well.
