  • Dough:
  • 3 cups muffin mix
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons cold water
  • Filling:
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 1 teaspoon tequila
  • 1 teaspoon Greek seasoning (recommended: Cavender's Seasoning)
  • 2 large chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cans cream of chicken soup
  • 4 tomatoes, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons diced tomatoes and green chiles (recommended: Ro-tel brand)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/2 cup roasted green chiles
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • Dough: In a bowl mix muffin mix, salt, butter, shortening, 1 egg, vinegar, and water. Knead dough, and cut into 2 pieces. With a rolling pin, roll out each crust large enough to cover a pie pan. Place 1 crust in a pie pan and remove excess crust. Refrigerate until ready to use. Set aside remaining crust in the refrigerator.

  • Filling: In a bowl mix lime juice, tequila, Greek seasoning, and chicken breasts. Let marinate in refrigerator for 2 hours.

  • Preheat a grill or grill pan. Grill chicken until cooked through and juices run clear. Let cool and shred.

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

  • In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add onions and cook until onions are soft, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and let cook for 1 minute. Remove heat; add 2 cans of cream of chicken soup, tomatoes, garlic salt, and green chiles. Stir in 1/2 cup of milk and 1 1/2 cups of cheese. Cook over medium heat for 10 minutes. Add shredded chicken and remove from the heat.

  • Pour filling into pie crust, add remaining 1 cup of cheeses, and cover with the reserved top crust. Cut small slits in top crust and flute edges. Mix 1/4 cup of water with remaining 1 egg and beat well. Brush the egg mixture over the top crust.

  • Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool 5 minutes.
