Holy cow.... How delicious and, as one reviewer already said, filling! :-) Thank you SO MUCH for posting this recipe. It is a welcome addition to my family's favorites and a fun way to incorporate a History lesson into an everyday kind of event. Before tripping upon this recipe, I would not dream of eating ANY "pot pie" or "a la king" type of dish, as I found the tasteless, slimy fillings to be a complete turn-off. Dégoûtant! However, the rich, thick (thanks to the ground almonds), and well-spiced filling of this pie pleased the entire family. Perfect on a cold Winter's day. The only modifications I made were an egg-wash on top for a beautiful, golden brown glaze... and the addition of a handful of frozen peas/carrots (which I also HATE but ATE... LOL) in an attempt to sneak in some veggies for the children. Added those to the chicken's cooking water near the end of the cooking time. Oh, almost forgot - I added green cardamom pods to the chicken cooking water, too. However, they didn't lend much flavor... with the exception of a lone pod I missed fishing-out that exploded in my poor husband's mouth - a bit too much flavor there! Whooooooops. A tip to keep the edges of the pie crust from getting too brown: If you're already brushing the crust with an egg-wash, try rinsing the brush and giving the edges a good soaking brush with just plain water. I did that twice once the crust edges had reached optimum color, and the edges stayed beautiful. The color was unifo
