I developed this recipe for camping out. The pies can be made and cooked ahead of time, then frozen. Reheat in foil over a campfire.

These take a while to prepare but are well worth it!

Note about the chicken. If you sprinkle the chicken breasts with garlic salt and lemon pepper, then bake in foil, they are very flavorful and moist and great in this recipe or any chicken salad!
