I love to bake and play in the kitchen.
Working the hours that I do now, it is hard to find time to cook decent meals every night.
I hardly ever eat dinner at home anymore..
~ which explains the 26 pounds that I've dropped since July.
Well, that and stress.
I really enjoy those days that I am off and get a chance to
cook and actually eat it.
Recently, Paul and I watched an episode of Throw Down with Bobby Flay and the competition dish was a chicken pot pie..
Ever since then we've been craving a hot creamy pot pie.
... and this bitter cold January day was the perfect day for it.
Now, before you start thinking that I put a lot of work and effort into this pot pie,
This is the easiest pot pie ever.
cooked chicken, cubed
1 can of cream of chicken soup
1 can of mixed veggies
1 can of diced potatoes
2 Pillsbury pie crusts
Cheddar cheese ~ as much as you want
First, I roasted a large chicken breast, let it cool and cut it into chunks.
In a large bowl, I mixed the chicken, cream of chicken soup, mixed veggies and the can of diced potatoes.
I seasoned it all with salt, pepper .
and Yes, I was watching Twilight's New Moon
Place crust on bottom of pie dish, dump chicken mixture in, spread evenly .
add cheddar cheese then top with remaining crust. .
bake @ 350 around 30 minutes or until golden.
Remember that I said that I was going to visit the thrift shop in search of some colorful dishes for that little shelf in the dining room...
I left with seven plates and the pie dish (that I used above) and spent around $12.00 for them all
I am in love with the blue and yellow floral plates!!
I still have some tweaking to do ..
here it is so far.
Have a great day.
