1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Cut chicken breast into small pieces and cook in skillet until brown.

4. Take one of the rolls of pie crust and place in bottom of round oven safe dish. Then take the mixture in the bowl and place onto the pie crust in dish.  Then take the additional pie crust roll and place it on top of the filling and for design use a fork to hold the two pie crusts together.

This is a recipe I have made a few times, its pretty inexpensive and tastes really good and is one of the few pies I will eat.
