…makes my mouth water at the mere thought of it.  Has it really been almost 8 months since I was last helping clog the Internet with a delicious recipe I dug up somewhere?  At the encouragement of my mom, I decided to jump back in and occasionally update good old SC when a recipe is just too good to keep to myself.   So, here it is: an incredibly easy, yummy chicken pot pie–no pictures for this post though, as it is all gobbled up!

For this simple pie with great reward you need:

  • 1 lb. ground chicken
  • 2 Tbsp.  Italian Dressing
  • 2 cups frozen mixed vegetables
  • A couple pinches of crushed red pepper
  • Freshly cracked pepper
  • 1 can creamof chicken soup
  • 1/4 lb. (4 oz.) VELVEETA, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 egg, beaten

The original recipe call for a pound of chicken breasts, cut into chunks.  I typically prefer to cook with ground chicken, as I think it is much easier (and faster!) and I prefer the texture.  Heat a skillet over medium high heat and add the chicken tossed with the salad dressing.  While the meat is cooking, heat the oven to 400.

When the meat is fully cooked, stir in the mixed vegetables, soup,  pepper seasonings, and Velveeta.   Pour the mixture into a greased 9-inch baking dish.  Place the sheet of puff pastry on top, pressing it closely to the sides and top of the mixture to form a good seal.  Cut a few slits into the pastry and brush the top with egg to give it that beautiful golden coloring when the pie is baked.  Place the dish on a cookie sheet (in case of spills!) , pop it into the oven, and bake for about 20 minutes, or until the pastry is golden brown.

Let the chicken pot pie rest for 5 minutes, then dig in and enjoy.  This dish literally comes together in minutes with the help of the soup and puff pastry.  It will absolutely delight your (and your family’s!) taste buds.  With Fall practically here, and Winter trudging along behind, put this on your list of must-tries.

bien manger!
