I love chicken pot pie. Love love love it. My great aunt makes a wonderful one, completely from scratch. But sometimes you don’t have that kind of time.
While Mom was here helping with the renovations, Prince Charming came over for dinner one night, and I made this version of chicken pot pie.
You will need:
cooked, shredded chicken- about 2 cups
12 oz bag mixed vegetables
1 can buttermilk style biscuits
1 1/2 cups Medium white sauce (or 1 can cream of something soup)
Put the chicken, veggies, and sauce/soup in an 8x8 casserole dish, and mix together, adding a little water if needed.
Put the biscuits on top and bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes or so, until bubbly and golden brown. You may need some foil to keep the biscuits from burning, depending on your oven.
Prince Charming LOVED this dinner!
Medium White Sauce:
3 tablespoons butter or margarine
3 tablespoons flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon of pepper
1 1/2 cups milk
Melt butter in saucepan over low heat. Blend in flour, salt and pepper. Cook over low heat, stirring until mixture is smooth and bubbly. Remove from heat. Stir in milk. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Boil and stir 1 minute or until thickened.
