Chicken Pie / Tuna Pie – Layered Pan Cooked Chicken/Tuna PIE

This is a delicious and easy to prepare dish that can be made with either cooked chicken OR a can of Tuna!

Both work really well. Served with some ketchup – it makes for a great late evening snack. My daughter loves this and will often demand that I make it for dinner. I have 2 daughters. They are the light  in my life!  The older one has never been much of a fussy eater although she does have distinct tastes. The younger one is so hard to feed! Fuss Monster, that one. Has a sweet tooth that spoils her appetite regularly! This is something that they will both eat without uttering a word! Use wholemeal flour to make it healthier, although I must say I prefer the Aroma with plain flour.
It can be made with beef as well.
