Double crust chicken pot pie (Tarta de pollo)





For me  chicken  pot Pie is to every time or any season  and I love to make it.
If you like an old fashioned chicken pot pie, with a flaky homemad crust you would love this recipe.

  From one of my recipe Book

Slowly add the cold butter, diced and form crumbs with 
yours fingertips. Mix egg yolk with water and add to the dough.
