This particular recipe is mentioned in my frugal e-book, mainly because it is super easy to make and absolutely delicious. You can serve it with a side salad and some cranberry sauce.
Heat oven to 425°F.
Make a (double) pie crust to fit a 9" deep dish pie plate, or use prepared pie crusts
1/3 c. finely diced Onion

I do apologize for the photo quality, you wouldn't believe how hard it is to get to the pie FIRST to try to get a shot!!
This recipe is very easily altered to accommodate leftovers such as pork, beef, lamb or venison. Simply use beefstock or vegetable stock in place of the chicken stock when swapping out the choice of protein. If you're using fresh veggies, we recommend that you lightly steam them just prior to adding them to the pot.
We use the Mastrad steamer dish for 3 minutes for fresh
