Chicken and Broccoli Pie

Rissa brought up a great point. Cooking for two can be so hard! This recipe is the perfect portion for just two eaters. Pair it with a side salad for a complete meal. The filling can be made the night before and reheated before putting in the pie shell and baking.

Chicken and Broccoli Pie
1 lb chopped chicken
1/4 C chopped onion
2 Tbsp flour
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp garlic salt
1 1/4 C milk
3 oz cream cheese, softened
1 egg
10 oz chopped frozen broccoli cooked and drained
4 oz shredded cheese
Pastry for 9 inch pie pan

Saute chicken and onion in 1 Tbsp oil till done. Add flour, coat chicken; add salt, garlic salt and milk. Stir until bubbly, add cream cheese until melted. Stir some of hot mixture with the egg, then stir egg into pan. Add broccoli, pour hot mix into baked pastry shell and sprinkle with cheese. Bake at 350 for 30 min.

My alterations: I eliminate the chicken and use 16 oz of broccoli, I also use the 1/3 less fat cream cheese. It tastes just the same, but I feel like it melts faster than regular cream cheese.
