Chicken Pot Pie A La Crock: EH.

Leave a comment

OK, so I give you this recipe with a warning: it wasn’t great, but hey, use it/modify it as needed and to be honest, my taste buds were a little off on Sunday when dinnertime came.  Also, it is more of a (another warnign: very salty) stew and you will need to make biscuits (I used Pillsbury Grands flaky ones) to top it or scoop it.  Here it goes:

You need:

3 cans Campbell’s Cream of Chicken soup

1 bag mixed frozen veggies

I container mushrooms

1 cup chopped celery

about 4 breasts of boneless skinless chicken, cubed

6 cubes chicken bouillon

1 tablespoon garlic salt

1 tablespoon black pepper

about 6 medium red potatoes, cut in large cubes

Directions:

Combine all ingredients in crock pot EXCEPT bag of mixed frozen veggies

HINT:  These are amazing mess-savers and would be definite musts for this kind of recipe:

Cook on high for 6 hours.

THEN add the frozen veggies.

 Cook on medium for 1 hour.

Serve with biscuits.

Seriously, leave me a comment and let me know what you thought. I think it is worth a try!

Hi!  So this recipe is DEFINITELY worth sharing, unlike my chicken pot pie a la crock pot, which is coming shortly.  This meal is DELISH!  It is not an easy peasy one, but is totally worth it.  Try it..Like now.

INGREDIENTS/DIRECTIONS:

about 2/3 cup diced onion

about 2/3 cup diced mixed mushrooms (I used shitake, baby bella)

about 2/3 cup diced carrots

Heat about two tablespoons olive oil in large sauce/stock pan

I use this kind- it is UNreal but a bit expensive; I only use it for "special" dishes

Add (heaping) tablespoon of minced garlic (can NEVER get enough of this)

Add the mushrooms and onions.  Saute for about 5 minutes until brown.  Then  add carrots.  Cook for about 3 more minutes.

Add about 3/4 pound of ground meat.  I used turkey.  Cook for about 8 minutes, stirring often so to chop up meat and cook thoroughly.  Then, add the tomatoes, dash of salt, dash of pepper, dash of garlic salt, few dashes of sugar (I like my gravy sweet), dash of parsley and one tablespoon chopped thyme (I used fresh)

Simmer for 20 minutes on medium.  While it is simmering, cook your pasta.  I prefer Barilla.  I prefer al dente 😉

Reward your kitchen helper.

Serve and devour.  ENJOY!
