from Pillsbury, though I've adapted it some. DH really liked this, and I think kids would, too -- it's homey comfort food, and actually comes together pretty quickly.

Subbed green peas, sauteed yellow onion. and roasted red peppers. Great easy dish that you can change up for ingredients you have on hand.

This was just okay for me and the family. I thought it needed something though not sure what. Just not our cup of tea.

Delicious and comforting. My daughter requested a chicken pie with green beans tonight. I find it fun to come on to Recipezaar to find something that fits the bill and that I have all the ingredients. Well, I didn't have any red pepper and you can't get Pillsbury here in New Zealand so I topped it with a scone dough (biscuit) and made it into a cobbler. I especially liked the parmesan on the top. Not something I would normally have done but it was in the recipe so I did it. It went all golden and crusty and I imagine that it would be nice on the crescent rolls too.
