I am trying to find a good way to freeze chicken pot pies...I am assisting a person that is low income next week and we are working on making healthy meals for her to freeze instead of buying processed food.
She loves chicken pot pies so what I was thinking was (since she has limited kitchen equipment in her house) was using my large ramekins, put parchment paper in the bottom, line it with pie crust dough, make the filling and wait for it to cool, then put it in the dough in the ramekin and place pie crust dough on top.
Freeze until just set then take a double amount of heavy duty foil, make a mould around the bottom and then top with foil and put in the freezer. then when she is ready to eat, she can just take it out of the freezer, bake for about 30 minutes, then just take the top foil off so that the top can brown, then she can eat and enjoy.
Does this sound reasonable? I have looked online and Iha ve not found anything like this so any help would be appreciated.
