Recipes Tips:

If you want to make the pie crust from scratch, you can use grandma's recipe for the crust. Just mix 2 cups of all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon of salt, and 2/3 cup of shortening in a bowl. Add 5-7 tablespoons of cold water, a tablespoon at a time, until the mixture forms a dough. Roll out the dough on a floured surface and use it to line the pie plate.

If you want to add more flavor to the filling, you can add some herbs and spices like thyme, rosemary, or garlic powder. You can also add some grated cheese for a cheesy twist.

If you want to make the filling healthier, you can use low-sodium chicken broth, whole-wheat flour, and olive oil instead of butter. You can also use more vegetables and less meat to make it more nutritious.
