Hey Amber -
Here's a copy of a recipe I put on the "Chicken" page -
It's pretty easy, and I freeze it all the time.

Here's my mom's very own Chicken Pie recipe - it is soooooo good, and makes a wonderful leftover too.

Chicken Pie
1 - 8oz block cream cheese
2 Tbsp butter
3 chopped green onions
4 Tbsp milk
Salt & pepper to taste
3-4 chicken breasts, boiled & diced
1/2 pkg. FROZEN "hash brown" cubed potatoes (so you need 1 pound)
1/2 pkg. FROZEN petite peas (if you don't like peas, don't use 'em!)
1 pkg. Pillsbury Refrigerated Pie Crusts

Preheat oven to 350. In a large glass bowl, melt cream cheese & butter together in microwave. Add salt, pepper, onions & milk. Stir till smooth.
Add chicken, frozen potatoes & frozen peas. Mix well.
Pour into crust & add top crust. Crimp edges & vent with knife.
Bake 35-45 min. till crust is golden.

You can also include froz. carrots, corn, or whatever suits you.

This can be served alone, or topped with any of the following favorites:
Apple Sauce (kids love this, as do I)
Sour Cream (mom & I love this one)
Tabasco! (hubby & son #1 think all food needs Tabasco)

ALSO - filling can be made in bulk and frozen in pie-sized portions in freezer bags. Just defrost & dump into a pie shell for a quick dinner.

jkath,

Your mom's Chicken Pie recipe sounds wonderful! I can't wait to try it (with mushrooms added). It sounds like a great church potluck dish too. Thanks!

:) Barbara

My husband can exist for days on a lasagna .... and, truth be told the big frozen ones in the grocery store do fine, and are often cheaper to buy than making from scratch. After he bakes the whole thing the first day, he can just cut squares and nuke them. One of those bags of salad or slaw greens with his favorite dressings on hand and you're off easy.

yeah.. I did that with chili a couple weeks back.. and I still have a couple plastic containers in the freezer.. makes an easy dinner or lunch. You can do that with lots of things.. wasabi woman had a great idea (she always does)... you could even take some boneless, skinless chicken breasts and make a marinade and freeze the breast with some marinade. All your husband would have to do is throw it in a frying pan and cook until the juices no longer run pink.. tell him to check by cutting the thickest part of the breast.
