Meat Pie

Have leftover chicken or turkey? Turn it into a meat pie for a complete meal! I made individual ‘child’ size portions in ramkin dishes, which my girls loved. They had fun eating their very own serving and gobbled it right up, vegetables and all. It was a fun way for the girls to feel all grown up with their own individual pies.

My meat pie was made using leftovers and whatever vegetables I had on hand in the fridge. The vegetables I used were fresh but if you use frozen ones, remember to account for the fact that they will have a higher water content.

My gluten free pie crust was made from an all purpose dough recipe using fermented dough. But you can use whatever dough you want.

Ingredients and Steps:

  1. Whatever size dish you are using, make sure you grease it with butter or coconut oil first
  2. Fill the dish with vegetables and leftover precooked chicken (corn, peas, mushrooms, carrots all work really well).
  3. Make the sauce next- You will want about 1-2 Cups of chicken stock (depending on the size of your dish), salt and pepper, other spices you enjoy such as basil, and melted butter or coconut oil (a couple tbsp). If you want a ‘milkier’ sauce, add milk and cheese to your chicken stock. If you want a thicker sauce, just dissove 1 TBSP tapioca starch into a couple tbsp of water and add that to the sauce
  4. Pour the sauce over the pie ingredients
  5. Sprinkle with cheese
  6. Roll out the dough and cut it to size, laying it on top of the pie
  7. Bake and let sit 10 minutes before cutting into it

This is such a handy recipe because you can prep it beforehand and leave it in your fridge until you need to bake it. It also is an excellent way to make a complete meal out of leftovers.
