Chicken Leg Pie or Chicken Thigh Pie

is an old recipe that is making a new appearance in restaurants around the nation and chefs are adding their own flavorful touches.  Home cooks are discovering the recipe in the back of their Grandmas’ recipe boxes while looking for something new and making a grand time of it.

Chicken Leg Pie

sounds like a joke to “city folk”, but it is a legitimate dish. It was most probably developed as a different way to use the abundant chicken on US farms, especially in the Great Depression. After fast food became a way of life, the recipe was put away until the 1970s, when it resurfaced. In the 1980s, it seemed to disappear again, but is visible again in the 2010s as a novelty dish.
