Recently, DrSavta quoted one of the funnier films from my childhood...The Frisco Kid.
As a child, one of my favorite scenes was the one where Avram (Gene Wilder) is chasing a chicken and says "Come here little chicken. I don't want to hurt you. I just want to eat you. I don't want to hurt you! I just want to make you kosher!"
So... I haven't been hunting chickens... Instead, I've been hunting chicken pot pie recipes...
My friend Scott found this one, which looks terribly complicated. Here's the problem. Among the ingredients are butter and milk, which... for those who keep kosher, don't work well with chicken.
Also shortening is not easy to buy and is not part of my standard cooking repertoire.
So, chefs and chef wannabes, can I make the crust with just margarine? Should I use "butter flavored?" Should I make it with entirely shortening?
For the filling, should I substitute with margarine or is oil ok?
For the "milk," should I use rich for coffee, pareve cream (there's one without sugar), soy milk, coconut milk?
