This recipe was the first one I tried from the food blog world. AND it is the first dinner that I took photos of…which I came across when going through my pictures tonight. I am sharing the recipe with you now and have to laugh that I didn’t take a photo of the meal after it was cooked. Oops but you can see how good this is going to turn out.
I was so excited to go out and purchase my first cast iron skillet. When I buy a new kitchen product it makes me feel like such a chef.
This my friends is such a great easy meal if you are thinking about trying to cook, got that not so sure of yourself feeling? Give this one a whirl. It is easy and impressive at the same time. And a cast iron skillet will last you FORever so an inexpensive investment.
You like my skillet??? LOL – it blends in with my stove but it is there – along with the recipe from Picky Palate
28 ounce can crushed tomatoes
1/2 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 cups cooked, shredded chicken – another great use if you slow cook a whole chicken
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 refrigerated pie crust, room temperature
1 egg white
1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 tablespoon shredded Parmesan cheese
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Pour tomatoes into 9 inch cast iron skillet. Season with Italian seasoning, salt and pepper, stirring to combine. Add chicken and gently stir to incorporate into sauce. Top with Parmesan and mozzarella cheeses.
3. Unroll pie crust and lay over chicken and cheese mixture. Press the edges of the pie crust around the skillet
4. Whisk egg white with 1 teaspoon water and brush a light coat over crust. Top evenly with Italian seasoning and Parmesan cheese. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, until crust is golden brown. Remove and let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
5. Serve – Eat – Enjoy!
Serve with a fresh salad and warm garlic bread. Now don’t go buying that stuff in the freezer. Buy a fresh loaf from the bakery, slice it up, butter it up and sprinkle with garlic salt!

I forgot to note what Mr. Hubby rated this. I know for sure it was over a 7 since I saved it to make again.
