Chicken/Turkey & Broccoli Pie


My kids got excited when they saw me bring out the pie plate. Their mouths started watering, wondering what kind of pie Mommy was going to make.

Chocolate? Apple? Banana Cream? They wondered.


Their faces fell. It wasn't really pie they said. They ate chicken nuggets.

It was, however, delicious. And simple. 2 qualities that go well on a weeknight dinner. I used the last of the leftover turkey and it was plenty for the 3 of us.

So no, it wasn't the sweet, sugary pie the kids wanted but I was satisfied. Who am I kidding, I would have loved to eat banana cream pie for dinner too.

Chicken/Turkey & Broccoli Pie
1 ½ cups broccoli florets
½ cup red pepper
1 cup cheddar cheese
1 cup shredded cooked chicken or turkey (I used 4.5 oz turkey)
1 medium onion, chopped
½ cup Bisquick mix
1 cup milk
¼ tsp each salt and pepper
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
Couple of dashes of hot sauce
1/3 cup egg beaters

Heat oven to 400. Spray 9 in. glass pie plate with cooking spray. Layer broccoli, ½ cup of the cheese, the chicken and onion in pie plate. In medium bowl, stir Bisquick mix, milk, salt, pepper and eggs with wire whisk until blended. Pour into pie plate. Bake 20 – 25 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Sprinkle with remaining ½ cup cheese. Bake 3-4 minutes longer or just until cheese is melted.
