I gave up dessert for Lent, so I switched up my usual sweet treat for a savory pie for Pi day 2021.
2 pie crusts
3 tbsp minced garlic
1/2 chopped onion
Salt & pepper
Spices: thyme, parsley OR oregano, rosemary
1/3 cup flour
1 can condensed cream of chicken
1/2 cup chicken broth
2 cups shredded/cut chicken
This can be precooked from a rotisserie or cook it yourself
3 cups frozen vegetable medley (corn, peas, green beans, etc)
Optional: 1 egg for eggwash
Preheat the oven to 420 F. Grease the pie pan to allow an easier time when serving. Put the first pie crust in the dish.
In a pot add olive oil and sauté your onions until soft.
Add garlic and spices. Cook for ~2 minutes.
Mix in the flour. cook for ~2 minutes.
Add the can of cream of chicken. Mix. Add the chicken broth. I added when I thought it was needed and estimated I used 1/2 cup. You want this filling to be on the thicker side.
Add the vegetables and cook until they are no longer frozen.
Add the chicken and cook for 5-8 minutes. Turn off the burner. You can let it cool to room temp or throw it in the pie crust. I did the latter.
Add the top pie crust. Cut a slit or make a pi symbol to allow venting. Pinch the sides together. I pinch off excess crust to make the numbers.
Make your egg wash. Add one egg and 1-2 tbsp of water. Beat. Brush the pie with the egg wash.
Cook for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
TA DA you have a savory and very easy pie for pi day!
