Chicken Pot Pie

Milady is making chicken pot pie for supper. The way she does it, it's fairly easy. It tastes great and the boys love it.

Here's a picture of the basic ingredients.

Left to right. A pack of frozen mixed veggies, cooked in water with 2 chicken bullion cubes. Two cans of cream of chicken soup. A rotisserie chicken. A big casserole dish, lined with pie crust.

She uses pre-made pie crusts. You could make your own crust, but this is a quick dinner.

Boil your veggies in the chicken broth. Line your casserole dish with a pie crust, then toast the crust in the oven at 350 degrees. Peel the chicken off the bone, then mix your veggies, chicken and add the two cans of cream of chicken to make the filling. Salt and pepper to taste. Add the filling to the toasted bottom crust and cover the pie with a top crust. Bake at 350 until the filling bubbles and the top crust is done.

Here's a picture before the top crust.

Here's one after it comes out of the oven.

Bon apetit!

If a fellow doesn't have a "Milady" or a decent stove, a Schwans chicken pot pie is hard to beat.

That's just unfair - to tease readers with pictures of the finished dish - especially those of us who aren't cooks.
