Pampered Chef Rice Cooker. Only 10 minutes and they are fork tender.
Chobani was kind enough to send me some of their tasty Greek style yogurts to sample, I wanted to incorporate them into the sauce. If you haven't tried their yogurt yet, I highly recommend you try it. And no they didn't pay me to say that. I have been eating their yogurt for a while now and like it better than the Yoplait I used to eat. It does have a slightly sour aftertaste, but the the texture is smoother and the flavored ones don't have that overly sweet taste that the other yogurts have. I have used it in smoothies and some of my desserts with great results. Even my little ones like Chobani.

Ingredients (6-8 servings)
- 4 or 5 medium potatoes
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 (5 oz.) package pink salmon (skinless, boneless)
- 2 - 9inch ready made pie crusts
- 1 egg
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1/2 cup Chobani greek yogurt, plain
- 1/3 cup mayonaise
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
- 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon peel
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
InstructionsFor the pie
Preheat oven to 375º F.
Peel and cut potatoes into halves, place in a medium pot and cover with water.
Bring water up to a boil over medium high heat on stove top and boil for 10-15 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender.
Drain potatoes and place in a large bowl. Mash potatoes until no longer lumpy.
Add butter and milk and mix by hand until completely blended. Then add salt and pepper to taste. (I am usually a little heavy on the salt.)
Add in the salmon and mix until all incorporated.
In a 9 1/2 inch pie plate, place the first pie crust at the bottom and fill with the potato/salmon mixture.
Next, place the second pie crust over the mixture. With your hands or a fork, go around the entire pie and press the two pie crusts together at the edges to seal. Cut off any excess crust with a knife.
Cut 3 or 4 small slits in the top crust to vent.
In a small bowl whisk the egg and with a pastry brush, brush a thin layer over the top pie crust.
Place pie in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or until the crust is a golden color and flaky.
Remove from oven and let sit for 5 minutes before serving.For the sauce
Place all ingredients in a medium bowl and mix until well blended, then serve with the pie. If you want you can warm up the sauce in the microwave for 15-20 seconds or until desired temperature is achieved.
