Can I Store Chix Pot Pie in Fridge With Uncooked Crust?

Joined Feb 12, 2010
Hello from England! I'm cooking for a friend whose son had surgery. He was due home today and I was planning on bringing over a chicken pot pie. Now he won't be home until tomorrow but I'm leaving town so I still need to deliver the pie. What's the best way to do that...
Deliver with uncooked crusts, cooked filling, and let his mom assemble? If possible, I would like it to be ready to pop in the oven.
Can I put the cooked filling in the uncooked crust and let her store in the fridge for a day?
Should I partially bake in oven, let her store in fridge, and then continue baking when ready to serve?
Any help would be appreciated.

Yes you can. Wrap in foil and freeze. When you are ready to serve them, bake a 400 degrees for 45 minutes to an hour, until crust is golden brown.

Either freeze it, as already suggested; deliver it with the crust separate and allow your friend to assemble; or, cook it all the way and allow your friend to reheat it.  Your other strategies of par-baking or holding assembled in the fridge, would result in a mushy crust.

I thought I posted a reply to this earlier- before we moved to the new site....

I make chicken pot pies, individual sized, for my mother-in-law. The filling is completely cooked; I cool it completely, then cover with pastry. I don't use a bottom crust, and the dishes I use hold about 12 ounces. I brush the top of the dish with egg wash, put the crust on, then brush the pastry with egg wash. After I cut a vent, I wrap the pie tightly with plastic wrap then foil and freeze. She defrosts the pie in the fridge, then bakes it. Never a bad pie so far!
