This is one of our favorite chicken pies. When my son would come home from a tour of duty as a Marine, this is the one thing he requested to eat every time.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This is one of those chicken recipes that is easy to make with simple ingredients and is oh-so-delicious. Perfect for the picky eater. There are no veggies... just chicken. Layering the crust into the pie is a little different and what holds the pie together. This will quickly become a family favorite. It's also a great way to use leftover baked chicken! We did a simple basket weave for the second layer of pie crust to make the chicken pie look pretty. You could easily just lay the strips down too.
