Chicken Pie!

Posted by Gianna Elizabeth Ianos on Monday, May 20, 2013, In : Pie for Dinner? 


Meat pies are very popular in Europe, here they are okay, but most do not make anything special.

I decided to change that!

Pictured is a Chicken Pie, loaded with organic chicken breast chunks, fresh peas, carrots, green bean, and even corn.

I make my gravy with cream, butter and cream of chicken soup with a dash of this and that.

The crusts are organic too, but not made by me, I forgo that for someone else to do as long as the quality is good.

This whole process from start to finish takes app. 20 ...

Recipes are just guidelines. I have said that comment to people for years. Yes they are necessary when you start a new recipe and you liked how that turned out. But, and here it comes you make it again and say to yourself I wonder if I added this what that would do or how it would taste.
That is how recipes get changed or tweaked like I like to say. I am always tweaking, twisting, and improving on my r...
