Her “Famous” Pot Pie

I have to admit, I’m not the best cook in the world.  

I just became ‘domesticated’.  4 years ago I was a career woman.  In those circles, no one I knew cooked.  Now is a different story.  Not only do my friends cook, we cook for each other.  I enjoyed having friends bring me homemade dishes after my babies were born.  Now I love to return the favor.  This is the dish I love to make.  I’ve had many requests for the recipe.

I’m almost embarrassed by how simple it is.  

Here’s what you need:

-Refrigerated pie crusts (sold in a two pack.  You’ll use both.)

-Cooked chicken or Turkey.  (I’ve used grilled, rotisserie, and fried.  My favorite is my husband’s smoked beer can chicken)

-Bag of frozen veggies

-Big Can of Cream of Chicken Soup

 

Here’s what you do:

-Preheat oven to 375 degrees

-Once the chicken is cooked, make sure it is in bite-sized pieces.

-Place it in a big bowl and add the veggies (cooked in the microwave) and the soup.

-Place one pie crust in the bottom of a pie dish.  Fill it with your chicken-veggie-soup mixture.  Cover with the other pie crust.

-Bake for 40-50 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.

**We like to serve with cottage cheese.

Here are some pictures of my pie-making fun:

 

Make sure the chicken is in bite-sized pieces.

 

Mix chicken, veggies and soup in a big bowl.

 

Place first pie crust in a the pie plate and fill with chicken mixture.

I like to bake mine on a cookie sheet in case it overflows.

 

Enjoy!
