Chicken Pot Pie

Posted on March 14, 2011. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Alright! Now that we have covered some essential nutrition topics lets see some recipes and meal ideas!

Do you miss mom’s homemade chicken pot pie? Are you tired of eating the Marie Calender’s microwaveable version that contains loads of sodium,saturated fat, and trans fats? Finding meals that include all of the food groups of the food pyramid can be a difficult challenge. This is a simple solution to add more vegetables into you diet (peas,corn, carrots, and green beans). I came across this idea my sophomore year and while it doesn’t compare with a real homemade pie, it satisfies the stomach and the wallet.

Ingredients:

– 1 Large can of canned chicken, or sliced and boiled chicken breast

– 1 bag of frozen mixed vegetables (corn,peas,carrots)

-1 biscuit package (Pillsbury Dough Boy, Western Family, or whatever other brand you prefer. I like the flaky options)

– 1 can cream of chicken

-1/4 C milk

– Salt and Pepper to Taste

Instructions:

1. Cook the vegetables according to the packaging

2. While the vegetables are steaming, mix the can of cream of chicken, 1/4 C milk, and salt and pepper. Stir in the chicken pieces or can of chicken.

3. Strain the vegetables from the water and mix in with the sauce and chicken.

4. Pour the mixture into a 8’X 11′ Cassondra dish

5. Pop open the biscuit package and place the dough on top in a row until the entire filling is covered with the dough.

6. Cook in the oven at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until the biscuits are golden brown and cooked all the way through. It may require more time for the bottom of the biscuits to cook all the way through.

All these meals sound great. I think people are afraid to try healthy meals because it is most likely going to taste bad but when i read those and looked at the pictures they look wonderful!

I have eaten this chicken pot pie and it has permanently changed my life for the better. Believe.

Okay, yum. i am not a big chicken pot pie girl because im not into pie crust, but i love the idea of the rolls on top. How many people does it serve?

Thanks! It serves 6 people.
