    • nutmeg, ground: ¼ teaspoon
    • sea salt: ½ teaspoon
    • chicken breast, cooked and diced: 1 cup
    • mozzarella cheese, shredded: 1 cup
    • pie crust, precooked (recommend spelt, but hat's off to you if you make your own pie crust from scratch!): 1
    • paprika: 2 dashes
    • Pyrex pie plate, 10 inches (deep dish is best!): 1

    Directions:

    Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

    Optional:  Replace chicken with cooked and diced turkey or tuna fish.  Replace broccoli with precooked spinach.
