Chicken Pie Makin'

A gang of ladies met at Old Capitol UMC for three mornings in early October to make chicken pies for our annual Veteran's Day Dinner.  Edith Davis led our team and did a lot of pre-prep to get us ready to roll each morning.  Also, Joey Rosbottom cooked the chickens early each morning and had them cooled and ready for us at 8am daily.
We donned our caps and gloves each morn and prayed together.
Chicken pickin' is a natural art.

Two Connie's and Edith working on the gravy....Edith's secret recipe.
Carol cooling the chicken and gravy mixtures...requires a lot of ice and a lot of stirring!
Barbara and Pat rolling out the dough...definitely an art to that!
Barbara filling and covering a pie.  Each pie gets one whole chicken.

Yours truly crimping a pie and cutting "chicken tracks" on top to let out the steam :)
A finished pie ready for bagging and the freezer.  We made 120 pies over 3 mornings.  Lots of work...lots of fun.
Come join us November 5th for the Veteran's Day Dinner and church Bazaar.
