Are you on Spring Break? Check out this list of 12 fun ideas to do during spring break.
Did you know today is Pi (π) Day? π = 3.14 = March 14. Pretty cute, huh? I thought so! In honor of Pi Day I am making my family our favorite (and the easiest) Homemade Chicken Pot Pie for dinner and I thought I would share the recipe with you. This has been a family favorite of mine growing up. It is so easy to make and it makes the whole house smell wonderful, which = me looking like the best cook ever! I love to take this over to friends if I ever need to bring them a meal. The trick to the “easy” is the store bought pie crust that you can find in the freezer section! 😉
Making a pie on Pi Day is just something fun to do and I have to make dinner anyways, so why not?!?! If I am feeling ambitious, I may have the kiddos help make a pudding pie for dessert (also super easy!)…do you see a theme here? I think I am in a lazy mood! =) If you are in the mood to make a real fruit pie, you should give our Mini Apple Pies Recipe a try.
Happy π Day!
- 2 9-inch pie crusts ~ pre-formed store bought is the easiest or you can make your favorite pie crust from scratch.
- 1 package frozen peas and carrots ~ we like adding corn, too.
- 1 Tablespoon dried onion flakes
- 3-4 chicken breasts, cooked and cut up ~ I aim for about 3-4 cups.
- 1 can cream of chicken soup
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Optional: other favorite seasonings ~ we like to add garlic, too.
Step 1:Stir the chicke, veggies, soup, onions and seasonings together in a bowl.
Step 2: Pour mixture into one of the pie shells. Put the other pie shell on top. If using pre-formed pie shells, just trim off the crust from the top pie shell and pinch ends to fit on the one below. And make sure to cut a few slits on the top crust.
I usually cut a letter for a person’s name or a happy face for the slits.
Step 3: Bake at 350 Degrees for about one hour. When baking place your pie pan on a baking sheet to prevent your oven from getting messy in case your pie bubbles a little.
**Variation: Sometimes I do not make a bottom crust so I can add 2 cups of peeled, chopped and pre-cooked potatoes to the chicken-veggie mixture.
