This recipe for Pennsylvania Dutch Chicken Pot Pie is a favourite meals at our home. This is a classic American recipe from the Amish cookery book. The tenderness of the chicken mixed with the soft vegetables make this a lovely warming meal. However, add the small dough squares and the meal jumps another level to amazing.  This is a main dish on its own, but I like to serve it with Braised Peas with Prosciutto.  If you wish, you can use the dough to make a lid to become a traditional pie such as Autumn Chicken Pot Pie or Chicken Potpie in a Bowl.
