Especially when you shop at Pick ‘n Save and take advantage of all the shortcuts. Like Simple Truth Organic pie crusts and frozen mixed vegetables and store bought rotisserie chicken. Yes, yes, and yes, please. Talk about making an easy recipe even easier!
This recipe is oven-ready in just 15 minutes and fully baked in 45. It’s easy to make ahead and pop into the oven when you get home from work, and the leftovers couldn’t be more delicious.

CAN YOU USE FRESH VEGETABLES?
Yes, you can absolutely substitute fresh chopped vegetables for the frozen mixed vegetables. To replicate the frozen mix, add corn, green beans, carrots, and peas. You can also substitute other vegetables, including broccoli, cauliflower, or mushrooms.
CAN YOU USE HOMEMADE PIE CRUST?
Feel free to substitute your favorite pie crust recipe for the store bought crust, and simply bake as you normally would. As pie crust recipes can vary, be aware of the temperature and timing based on the crust you use.
CAN YOU USE CHICKEN BREAST OR THIGHS IN PLACE OF ROTISSERIE CHICKEN?
Any type of shredded or chopped cooked chicken will work in this recipe. If your family prefers all white meat, feel free to use chopped or shredded chicken breasts. If your family prefers dark meat, chicken thighs would be a good alternative.
