The Lion Tamer and a Non-Recipe
The holidays are making the dogs frisky! Lonnie is so brave to put his head in Cleopatra’s mouth!
Tonight, when I got home from work I made a “non-recipe” chicken pot pie.
“Non-Recipe” Chicken pot pie (just threw it together with what I had)
Chopped up some onions, carrots and celery because that is what I had in the fridge (use what you have….didn’t have peas or mushrooms or I would have added those in too)…..sautéed them in butter until they were soft. Then I added in a can of cream of chicken soup and a can of cream of celery soup. Added some salt and pepper and celery seed and also a little poultry seasoning….it was a little thick so I added in some fat free half and half. Next I added in some shredded chicken that was left from a chicken I roasted a few nights ago…..also defrosted some hashbrown potatoes and added those in as well at the last minute.
Okay, this was going to go in a round pie dish with crust on the bottom and crust on the top, but there was soooo much it wasn’t going to fit. I found another pie crust….you know…those Pillsbury pre-made jobbies….so I was able to put 1 and a half of them on the bottom and up the sides of a casserole dish….poured in my chicken pot pie concoction and then used the other 1 and a half pie crusts to cover the top…..okay, so it wasn’t the prettiest thing I’ve ever made, but it was certainly DELISH!
