I have been asked more than once if I am a vegetarian. I am not, I just happen to like vegetables a lot.

So naturally this Chicken pie is loaded with vegetables.

To get started you need some parsley, chives and sage, preferably fresh from the garden but if you only have dried that would work too.

It should all fit even if you have to do a little convincing.  Didn’t Martha Stewart have an article about really deep pies? I think it was actually about desert pies, well never mind.

Top with pie crust cut into shapes cut with a cookie cutter.

Place on baking sheet to catch the drips so they don’t mess up the oven. Bake at 350 for an hour or until lightly brown.

Or serve it French Canadien style with ketchup.

I had never heard of putting ketchup on chicken pie until I was served chicken pie at my friend’s house and they passed me the ketchup. Guests first, I was confused. She explained that you put it on top of the chicken pie. I was skeptical at first, but I tried it.

I can now tell you it is good and I have converted.
