Last year I had a "Leftovers Thanksgiving" where I invited family over for Thanksgiving at our house and cooked enough that we could all take home lots of leftovers. I cooked a 23lb bird for 8 people!
With the leftover meat and bones, I went to town batch cooking and meal prepping. One of the meals was a Chicken Pie with this crust and I froze 2 and ate one. It held well for the brief time it was in the freezer. It was also great to bring someone in need of a comforting meal.
This pie crust recipe is a really fun surprise when biting into your chicken or turkey pie. It's savory and homey. This herbed pie crust would be a tasty addition to any savory dish with a crust. It's also a fun way to make your dish unique.
As you can see my herbed crust turned out beautifully.... Well, maybe not but it sure tasted wonderful!
You may like the idea of buying local and having a pasture raised bird for your Thanksgiving but then you see the price tag and are immediately taken back. Let me show you some of the TRUE costs of farming.
"We opened this storefront to give local farmers a place to sell their goods, and we've succeeded," Brian Williams, co-owner, Cottonwood Farm and Grocery says. "And, keeping the shelves stocked with other organic items is something the community vocalized, so we're trying to meet that need."
