pot pie-yumm

Whats for dinner on a crisp chilly fall evening?!

Who doesn’t love some pie? Pot Pie. Turkey-chicken-Chili even veggie! Perfect time for this fall  weather .. I am making them at least once a week. Have fun with it .Make it easy & simple. Veggies of your choice, Make your own pie crust or pre made. I always like to cheat a bit.& only add a top crust for me .Cut back on flour. (however I do use gluten free for my gluten allergy.)You can use all purpose -wheat-or 50/50 is always great choice too.

A little secret I will share is If I am short on time or supplies, I will throw a dash of “fake” potatoes to help thicken the filling up! If you don’t have fresh  veggies on hand I use frozen or canned. Fresh is always best.  Last advice I offer is I prefer mini pies for us. Make many and pop them in the freezer for other days to have! Here is my recipe- adjust accordingly to your taste buds ENJOY!!

skinless, boneless chicken breast / stew meat – cubed
1 cup sliced carrots
1 cup frozen green peas
