Shredded Chicken Taco Pie

Hello person reading this. :-) Tonight I made this really easy and delicious Shredded Chicken Taco Pie. My kids highly recommend it. 

 

It's very easy to make, and quick if you cook the chicken in advance. I used a pre-made Pillsbury Pie Crust dough which you can find in the refrigerator section of most large grocery stores. The package comes with 2 pie crusts, but only one is used for this recipe. The photo and recipe here feature Kraft Fat-free cheddar cheese but to be honest, I like it better with no cheese at all - and a tablespoon of sourcream instead. But that is up to you. 

 

My favorite store-bought green salsa is Trader Joe's brand, but any green salsa will do. Here's a snap-shot of the ingredients:

 

Yield/Servings: 8 slices Serving Size: 1/8 th slice of pie Total Cook/Prep time: 45 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 Pillsbury refrigerated pie crust dough
  • 4 cups shredded chicken breast (pre-cooked)
  • 2 cups salsa verde (green salsa)
  • 1 medium onion (chopped)
  • 1 large red bell pepper (chopped)
  • 1 cup Kraft fat-free cheddar cheese
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • salt and pepper (to taste)
  • fresh chopped cilantro and chopped chives to garnish

Directions

Preheat oven to 375

Unroll the pie crust from the packaging and place it into an 8 inch pie pan

Press the dough firmly onto the bottom and sides of the pan

Crimp edges (if you want to) and set aside

Place the shredded chicken breast into a large mixing bowl

Add the chili powder, ground cumin, garlic powder, salt and pepper

Mix to evenly coat the chicken

Add the salsa verde, onion and bell pepper

Mix to combine

Add the mixture into the pie crust

Bake for about 30 minutes or until the crust edges are golden brown 

Add the cheese and bake about 5 minutes more, or until the cheese is melted

Garnish with the cilantro and chives
