This simple recipe gives rise to a golden, cakelike crust that won rave reviews at the tasting table. Try replacing a portion of the chicken with an equal amount of frozen, thawed vegetables, or stir a cup of shredded cheese into the soup mixture. We especially enjoyed the pie with broccoli and Cheddar cheese.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups chopped cooked chicken
  • 1 (10 3/4-oz.) can cream of chicken soup, undiluted
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted

How to Make It

  1. Place chopped chicken in a lightly greased 12- x 8-inch baking dish. Whisk together soup, broth, and cornstarch; pour mixture evenly over chicken.

  2. Whisk together flour, buttermilk, and butter; spoon batter evenly over chicken mixture.

  3. Bake at 400° for 40 minutes or until crust is golden brown.
