Beware! Momma has a pie crust in her hand!

Admittedly I’ve been a little crazy with the pie crusts.  I seem to be taking any and all recipes, mixing the entire meal in a casserole dish and enclosing it in a pie crust.  In my defense, all but one tasted good and that’s all that matters. Right?

Last night’s concoction was great!  Could have used a bit more ‘juice’ but that’s an easy fix for next time.

Once again…  here’s the way we cook around here, somewhere in here is an actual recipe:

  1. First we cook a little rice…  I made 2 cups (cooked) and set it aside.
  2. While the rice was boiling, trying it’s best to burn like it did when I was in my twenties, I threw some frozen boneless skinless chicken breast tenders (from angelfoodministires) into a hot hot skillet pan thingy and put a lid on it.
  3. Then I peaked into the pan and poured about a 1/2 cup of water in and closed it again really fast (to make it steamy)
  4. Feed the baby a mum mum cracker, empty half the dishwasher and then add more water to the chicken..just a tad..
  5. Unroll ready made pie crust (cuz cool moms know what Pilsbury is and how to use it!) and shape it to the bottom of a casserole dish. 
  6. Flip chicken and add a can of cream of chicken soup to the skillet.  **this is where you may want to add more water, so you’ll have more juice when your done**
  7. When the chicken is close to done, spoon out some of the soup and put it in the casserole dish (to keep the rice from sticking).
  8. Spoon cooked rice into casserole dish and press down to form bottom layer.
  9. Use metal spatula to chop/break apart the cooked chicken into more manageable pieces. Then spoon chicken on top of rice.
  10. Open a bag of frozen mixed veggies (ours were peas, carrots, green beans, and corn) and dump a layer on top of chicken.
  11. Cover with another homemade pie crust and use fork to poke holes in the top.
  12. Bake on 350° for at least 30 mins or so… the chicken is done, you just need to cook the crust and the veggies.

Honestly, I was not expecting us to fight over the last piece!

Hope you like it!
