Chicken Pot Pie!
So, I am not even a huge fan of chicken pot pie...but last week for some reason I was craving it! WIERD! :) I have really been trying to use more fresh veggis (less frozen)...so I headed to the store to get the supplies! I have never even made this before..and didn't have a recipe - but it turned out SOOOO yummy - and BONUS!! - NO PEAS! :) It was super easy, and only took about 45 minutes -including prep...definitely a bonus in this house!
2 pie crusts (yes, these were frozen not from scratch)
fresh green beans
1/3 small sweet onion
1 pat butter
1 boullion cube
Low-fat sharp cheddar cheese
Chop the veggis, and boil them with the boullion cube until they are tender but not smushy. Saute the chopped onion with the pat of butter until the onions are soft and clear... chop the chicken. Combine the chicken with the veggis (strained)...stir in cheese (to taste) and then add approx. 1/4 - 1/2 cup of the broth that the veggis cooked in... (just enough to keep it from drying out in the oven)...add the mixture to the pie crust...top with more cheese if you want (of course the more cheese the better!)..and then put the second crust on top..cut slivers to vent!
Bake until the crust is golden brown (about 25-30 minutes)!! Cut and Enjoy!
This recipe got 4 thumbs up in our house...I'm sure if I was permitted to share - it would have gotten 8 paws too :)
