What to do with expiring cans of meat and veggies?
PREPPER POT PIE, of course!
PREPPER POT PIE
Hello Everyone! I don’t know about you guys, but I’m always looking for some recipes that are easy and quick and can use your soon to be outdated/expiring pantry prep items!
Here’s one that is really quick and allows you to use any canned meat you want, though I would suggest chicken. We use the Costco canned chicken breast. The quality is good and price is reasonable in bulk.
Almost Homemade Chicken Pot Pie
Preheat Oven to 425
One box of ready made pie crusts from the refrigerator section (The Walmart brand works fine)
One bag of frozen vegetables (small size, I like a green bean, carrot, corn mix)
Two Jars Chicken Gravy (I use the Heinz brand, one jar is for the recipe and the other jar you can warm to place on top of your slice of pie, if you like gravy on top of your pie)
One 12.5 oz Can Chicken Breast (I use one can, you could easily use 2 and cut back a little on the vegetables if you like more meat)
In a medium size bowl, put in the frozen veggies (no thaw required), the chicken breast, one jar of gravy,salt and pepper to taste. Stir together and set aside
In a pie plate (I use a 10″) place one of the pie crusts to make the bottom of the pie.
Place the Chicken Breast, Veggie and Gravy Mixture into the pie plate
Top with the remaining pie crust and crimp edges as you would any pie
Cut a few vents on the top of the pie
Bake at 425 for about 55 minutes depending on how brown you like your crust. I do put some foil around my edges and remove it for the last half hour or so.
I let it cool and “set up” before cutting it. Top with the remaining jar of gravy (if you like).
