How do you keep the bottom crust of pot pies from getting soggy?
Keeping the crust from getting soggy is as easy as coating it to create a barrier. Try a few drops of corn syrup or brush with a slightly beaten egg white. This will form a seal between the filling and dough to allow the crust to get flaky and crisp.
Blind bake the bottom crust first, which means to partially bake the crust before adding filling and finishing the bake.
How do you thicken mini chicken pot pie filling?
The process of adding broth to the floured vegetables should thicken the sauce. However, if it seems too runny, make a cornstarch slurry by combining 1-2 tsp of cornstarch with cold water and slowly stirring into mixture to thicken.
