Quick & Easy, RV Friendly Chicken Pot Pie {A Light Life Favorite}

20140327-122309.jpg

 I wanted to share a quick and easy recipe with you that is totally RV kitchen friendly! It isn’t fancy smancy organic, grassfed & gluten-free BUT it beats the heck out eating out or those awful frozen pot pies that nobody should eat ever! It has become a staple meal in our tiny home and my kids won’t eat any other pot pie. So of course I always keep ingredients on hand as my husband and kids devour it every single time I cook it!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 3-4 chicken breasts (just buy as all natural as your budget allows! – let’s not be ridiculous)
  • 2 cans cream of chicken soup
  • 1 large can or 2 small cans of veg-all canned vegetable mix
  • 2 pks. of refrigerated roll out pie crust
  • 2 refrigerated pie shells (optional) *If you use this you will only need 1 pk. of roll out pie crust listed above for the top crust
  • salt & pepper

Pre-heat oven to 425. Cook chicken thoroughly in skillet and cut up into bite sized pieces. Roll out pie crust and place in bottom of pie pan (you can also buy 2 pie shells for the bottom). Fill each pie crust with chicken, 1 can cream of chicken and vegetable mix. Salt and pepper as desired. Roll out pie crust and lay over the top of pie and tuck in the edges. Put in pre-heated oven and cook until top crust is golden brown. (around 25 minutes or so)

Viola! It really can’t get much easier than that.

Of course this recipe is totally customizable to your taste. Sometimes I cook my own potatoes and steam my own veggies. but I have never and probably will never make my own crusts and cream of chicken soup from scratch because I just don’t love to cook that much.

But if you want a quick, easy and super hearty meal your entire family is sure to love – then you’ll want to add this to your recipe box!

Basic RV oven cooking tips:

  1. One thing I have found to help with cooking evenly in the RV oven is to put 4 unglazed tiles above the heating element. It evens the heat out and since doing that I do not even need to rotate my food and have not experienced any uneven baking. It’s been a LIFESAVER for me since I love baking and we are full time in the RV!!! (tip sent in from Amy B.) Thank you Amy! 
  2. If you don’t have tiles in your to oven to even out the heat, turn your food halfway through cook time so it cooks it evenly and to prevent bottoms from burning.
  3. If you have trouble with the bottom of your food burning, pre-heat the oven to desired temp and them turn it down a bit once you put the food in. But really, turning the food half way through helps the most with this.
  4. Don’t overload. This should be fairly obvious, but RV ovens can’t handle large amounts of food at one time.

I hope you try out this super great recipe and love it! Leave us your comments or oven tips in the comments below! Who knows? I may just share your tips in a future post!
