Chicken ala King Risotto Pot Pie

Do you feel it is better to have a layer of risotto and then the chicken and gravy on top OR do you feel it's better just to mix the chicken, gravy and risotto all together in the pie?

I definitely like your idea of a layer of risotto on the bottom. Assuming a 2 crust pot pie, the risotto would thicken a bit, adding a wonderful bottom texture to the pot pie. With a single top crust pie, the risotto might form a bit of a crust on the bottom. Adding the risotto to the chicken and gravy would make it just chicken rice pot pie, wouldn't it?

Gammy, Thank you for your great advice ! I did make the pie with a bottom crust and did a par blind bake. Really, turned out great and was a hit !

These look yummy Stuart, and a wonderful winter comfort dish! Partial blind bake was a great idea, too. Can you post the recipe on Food52?
