Too tired to come home and make dinner? Pop a chicken in the microwave and nuke it!

Step 1: What You Will Need & Ingredients

You need:
A very large cookie cutter (any shape)
Rolling Pin
Cutting Board
Measuring spoons & cups
Large pan for boiling chicken
Basting, or pastry brush

These little pies are good because you can really put whatever you want in them.

My ingredients include:
1.5 C. Broccoli
1.5 C. Asparagus
(We differ on what we like)
1.5 C. Peas
2/3 C. Onions
4 Boneless/skinless Chicken Breasts
3 Cloves Garlic
2 Large Stems of Basil
Salt & Pepper
1 Rectangle of Butter/Margarine
2 C. Milk
1 C. Flour plus 3 heaping tablespoons for the sauce
Pre-made Pie Crusts
Olive Oil

You will want these to be easy/quick to make on the weekend, so try a pre-made pie crust that comes in a roll. Remember to pull them out of the freezer before you start. They will need to be a little colder than room temperature to work with.

your boiling pan is heart-shaped?<br /> cute! :D<br />
Hmmmmmmmmm...makes me hungry, now I&nbsp;have to go eat! Cman<br />
If I wanted to make this ahead of time, then pop it in the microwave for lunch later or something, how long should i heat it for?
Depends on your microwave. Do 2 minutes, then try 1.5 more. Make sure to poke a hole in it before you start; we don't want any exploding chickens!
I tried it twice but took out the asparagus and added bacon with a quickly baked on cheddar topping... my kids loved it. Thanks for the great recipe!
Thank You for the idea!! I've tried it a few times now. Lots of different combos.
I love easy recipes and this is one! I have a suggestion, if you dont mind. For the crust? Use those biscuits in a refrigerated can, like the croisant. Patch a few together, fill and pinch the edges together. Jan
Those look amazing! Thanks for sharing.
do you have a recipe for the pie crust?
2 9" Pie crusts are: 2/3 C. Shortening (heap it a little over the cup) 2 C. Flour 1 tsp. Salt 1/8 to 1/4 C. Very Cold Water Mix the Flour and Salt Cut the shortening into the flour using a pastry cutter, or a fork. It needs to be thoroughly worked in. Add the cold water slowly, working it in with your hands. Turn it onto a floured board and begin rolling out. I used pre-made crusts for this Instructable.
k, thanks
Do you have a recipe for the ones they made in Sweeny Todd? Those looked delicious.
Therapy...lots of therapy Mr. Dahmer. JK Funny quote:)
Looks good, and easy! They would also make fun soup ravioli/wontons if you used a slightly smaller cookie cutter.
The olive oil actually worked, and gave it flavor. But, you are right. Nix the olive oil and use an egg wash with the pastry brush. (It gives it a glossy look too, doesn't it?)
Nice. You should try an egg or egg white wash brushed over to give it a better and browner glaze than oil. I have found that water or egg would help seal the edges rather than it slipping with oil.
