This is awesome and easy! The first time I did it like the recipe. I didnt care for the crust so the next time I used the pre made pie crust in the refrigerator section. The box comes with 2 rolled up pie crusts. It turned out fantastic! I also added more veggies and a little less chicken. This is a great recipe!
I have been making this for a long time now... it's absolutely one of my favorite recipes. I don't use the crust, I just make my own, but the filling is fantastic!!
WOW! Really easy to make and really good! For my own personal tastes, I would add a pinch of salt to the crust.
