This pie offers perfect healthy comfort food for those cold wintery nights.

My body does better without too much wheat or gluten, so I easily adapt this recipe to suit by keeping a serving of the chicken mix just for me. I enjoy it with the sides suggested in the recipe below. It’s truly delicious!
