Ingredients

For the filling

  • 2-4 boneless chicken breasts or thighs
  • 4 cans or 2 frozen bags of mixed vegetables
  • 1 batch of Homemade Cream of Anything Soup * or 1 can of cream of chicken/mushroom/vegetable soup

For the pie crust

  • 1 cup flour
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup cold butter sliced into Tablespoons
  • ¼ cup ice cold water

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400F.
  • Boil the chicken until fully cooked.
  • While the chicken is boiling, drain and rinse canned mixed vegetables or steam frozen mixed vegetables. Add to a large mixing bowl.
  • Prepare 1 bath of soup if using the Homemade Cream of Anything Soup. Add soup to the bowl of vegetables.
  • Make the pie crust by pulsing the flour, salt, and butter in a food processor. Gradually add the water until the dough forms a ball. On a floured surface, roll out to the size of your baking dish or pie plate.
  • When the chicken is done boiling, cut into bite sized chunks and add to the mixing bowl. Combine the vegetables, chicken, and soup thoroughly. Pour into baking dish.
  • Lay the pie crust on top of the baking dish. Firmly press the edges of the dough onto the edges of the dish. Pierce the dough multiple times with a fork (to vent).
  • Bake at 400 for 30 minutes until bubbling.

Notes

This is also an excellent way to use leftover turkey (after Thanksgiving or Christmas).
Making dinner for a crowd? Add extra chicken and vegetables and prepare this in a large 9x13 baking dish.
Love the crust? Make a double bath - one crust for the bottom/sides of the dish, and one crust for the top.
