Cooking at home is one way to eat organic on a budget, and what’s more, home made than your very own Individual Organic Chicken Pot Pies? This made from scratch meal is loaded with hearty organic vegetable and has organic chicken in every bite. It’s all blanketed in a flaky pastry crust that you will want to make again and again. Really, it’s that good.
I really wanted to use a prepared organic rotisserie chicken for this recipe, but it was nearly my entire budget of $25 just for one ingredient! I shopped around for a raw, whole, organic chicken and it saved me a ton. It really wasn’t much prep to cook the chicken either. I seasoned it and let it cook in the crock pot while I worked on the pie crust. Yes, this is more work than frozen chicken pot pies, but it’s worth it. I made this entire recipe for $13.86. Each individual pie costs just $3.47. That’s only $0.18 more than a Marie Callender’s® personal chicken pot pie, which is full of GMOs. It’s also 108 calories less than their version. Here’s the cost for each item:
- $0.89 Organic Russet Potato from Sprouts.
- $0.30 Organic Carrot also from Sprouts.
- $2.39 Trader Joe’s Organic Unsalted Butter.
- $0.40 Organic Onion from Vons.
