Once again I am listening to some great 80's hits, and writing a blog for the few that read it! Thank you for your support! I know I am pretty bad at updating in general, but the muse has got to hit me. Or there is nothing good on TV.
Chicken Pie in a Pan
I got this recipe from my Taste of Home Casseroles cookbook. I had a few issues with the recipe, which I will address. But other than that it was a good one. I am taking my husbands word for it. I would not eat this stuff unless paid a good bit of money.
2 diced celery ribs, 2 diced medium carrots, 1 small chopped onion, 3 tablespoons butter, 1/4 cup flour, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 cup 2% milk, 1 cup chicken broth, 1 can(10 3/4 oz) cream of mushroom soup undiluted, 4 cups cooked cubed chicken.
This recipe has pinwheels on top, the crust ingredients and directions will follow after the main part, but keep in mind you will need more ingredients!
So, I didn't picture the veggies because I was running late to make dinner and my husband had somewhere to go that night so I just didn't picture them. See that little gold cube? That's my chicken broth.
This is not in the directions, but I will show you how I cooked my chicken. I cooked them whole on the stove top in some extra virgin(teehee)olive oil with a little salt and pepper. It probably woulda been faster and easier to cut the chicken raw, then cook it. But if you have read my past chicken casserole you would know I can't stand raw chicken. I can't touch it, its so slimy and gross! So I cooked it then cut it. It took longer then I thought, which is why I was running so late.
He was very good and didn't try to get on the counter, so yes I gave him just a tiny piece.
Stir in flour and salt until blended; gradually add milk and broth. Bring to boil; stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.
Oh, btw I used fat free milk, cuz thats all I had. I wasn't gonna buy specail milk for one recipe. Use whatever you want!
For crust, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Cut butter until crumbly. Add milk, tossing with a fork until mix forms a soft dough. Shape into ball.
Here it is, all done. My husband liked it, but he said that is was so thin on the bottom. Next time I think I will use a slightly smaller baking dish to fix that. Since the chicken mix is basically already cooked I don't think it will affect anything too much. Well I hoped you all liked it. I didn't. Cream of mushroom soup? No thanks! Onions? No thanks. Oh! Yes, I once again just used half an onion. A whole onion would be very oniony. See yinz next time!
