Chicken Bacon Ranch Pie

Chicken Bacon Ranch Pie

Chicken Bacon Ranch Pie came out of the combination of trying to make a chicken wrap and my Taco Pie recipe.

I was attempting to make a crescent roll stuffed with chicken, bacon, ranch and cheese.  I took a chicken breast, cut it into strips, wrapped it with cheese, add some ranch and then wrap the entire thing inside of a crescent roll.  This didn’t work out very well.

One day I was making Taco Pie and thought “hmmm…. I wonder” and “Chicken Bacon Ranch Pie” was born.

Prepare your chicken however you wish.  I cubed up and seasoned two raw chicken breasts and cooked in my air frier.  Preferably, you grill your chicken before using it in this recipe.

I made the pie crust in a cast iron skillet.  I am looking forward to trying it on a grill or over an open flame when the weather gets warmer here.  I am always looking for new things to make on my deck or at my campsite.

I do want to try this as a pizza but need to modify it.  I will post the results of that here when I do.  A more traditional pizza crust and less sauce would make this much more pizza like.
