One thing I will be doing this year is cooking up at least one new dish every week — and posting the results right here! After the absolutely sent-from-above deliciousness of the strawberry shortcake I whipped up last summer, I know there are some new favorites out there waiting to be discovered! Some will be great, some will be disgusting and I am willing to bet some will be a hilarious (to my mother) failure. Tune in every week to find out what will happen! 😉
Today I cooked up Savory Chicken Pot Pie. I’ve never been a fan of chicken pot pie. In fact, as a kid I hated it. I remember eating the crust and picking out the chicken bits and that was it. Tastes change as you age, though, and I thought maybe a homemade pot pie would be different (my childhood pot pies were out of a box, eaten during a period when Mom was working nights).
The recipe is simple enough. Stir a package of cream cheese into 1 cup chicken broth over low heat until creamy. Then stir in 3 cups cubed, cooked chicken (I used up Sunday night’s leftovers, yay!), 1 tsp garlic salt and a package of mixed vegetables. Pour that all into a pie plate. Beat together 1 egg and 1/2 cup milk; add 1 cup bisquick and stir just until moistened. Spoon the bisquick mixture over the chicken mixture and bake in a 400-degree oven for about a half hour.
The verdict: I still don’t like chicken pot pie. Ha! Maybe if the recipe had more (and tastier) ingredients I would like it more. I was never a fan of mixed vegetables, either, but I sure do like them more than I used to. The biscuit topping was good, and I did like the creamy sauce.
Violet gives it one thumb up.
Here is a sneak peek for tomorrow:
