Dough
  1. Combine flour, sugar and salt in a food processor

  3. Form the dough into a disc and wrap tightly in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 2 to 24 hours.
Filling
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Chop carrots, onions and celery and set aside.
  3. Cut chicken breasts into cubes.
  4. Heat oil in a large pot on medium heat. Cook the chicken for 3 to 4 minutes, until it is white all over.
  5. Add carrots, onions and celery and cook another 3 to 5 minutes. Fold in the corn and peas and then remove the mixture from heat.
  6. In a small saucepot, melt butter over medium heat. Pour in flour and stir until a thick sauce forms.
  7. Whisk in chicken stock and milk and cook until boiling.
  8. Pour the sauce over the cooked chicken and veggies and then scoop the filling into a pie dish.
  9. Roll out the dough to be a couple inches larger than the pie dish and then place on top of the pie. Press around the edges to remove excess dough.

Time to decorate!

  1. Roll out the excess dough and use cookie cutters to cut out the shapes of a skull.
  2. Use a bone cookie cutter to cut out bone shapes and then cut one end off of each bone. Use the longer bone to make crossbones around the skull.
  3. Brush egg wash roughly in the shape of the skull and crossbones on top of the pie.
  4. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.
  5. TaDa! You’ll strike gold with this Pirate Pot Pie when it feeds all your hungry maties!

This viral restaurant receipt is trying to remind people that their day-to-day lives would be totally different without immigrants.

The chef of this Brooklyn restaurant:

  • Born and raised on a sheep farm
  • Immigrated from New Zealand
  • Traveled the world to bring New Yorkers foods from other cultures

And that’s not even accounting for the staff of his kitchen.
