This chicken pan pie is the easy meal you need in your life right now
It's chock-full of lean white meat chicken, stuffed with hearty vegetables, and topped with a flaky crust. What more could you want?
Barry’s also the kind of guy who’s always talking about food in the office. To give you a better understanding, here are a few topics of culinary conversation Barry has put forth within the last month.
*The benefits of eating turkey-cranberry sandwiches pre-Thanksgiving.
*The differences and similarities between a soup and a stew.
*The tenants of a legendary cheesesteak.
*The uniqueness of high school cafeteria pizza.
*That very few things are bad with a fried egg on top and that McDonald’s should put an egg on top of a Big Mac and call it an Egg Mac.
That last point is an important one. Barry’s neighbor had offered him some homemade meat pies (no, this isn’t an euphemism), and Barry was astounded by their deliciousness.
I later asked Barry: “Barry, if I told you that you could make a meat pie in a pan, what would you say?”
Barry: “I’d say that I didn’t believe you.” And: “But you’re probably going to tell me that I have to buy a book to find out.”
Well, Barry, believe it.
This recipe for chicken pan pie has it all. It’s chock-full of lean white meat chicken. It’s stuffed with hearty vegetables. It’s topped with a flaky crust of puffed pastry. If you want to put a fried egg on top, I won’t hold you back.
And this one’s on me.
But, seriously, buy the book.
