Tonight we’re having chicken pot pie, made with two pie shells, some frozen mixed veggies, a can of cream of chicken soup and some chicken I cooked and chopped back in April.
As I mentioned in a recent post, I’m a big fan of buying in bulk and cooking ahead of time, and this is just one of the dishes that are made super simple because of it. It’s delish and sooooo easy.
In the family way shared a fantastic idea about pork in the comment section of that post (Thanks Heidi! I’m definitely going to borrow that idea!) and I would love to hear more.
She mentioned that she uses the crockpot, and I’m a huge fan of that handy little kitchen gadget, too.
One recipe I do over and over in the crockpot is kind of a chicken stew – I throw in veggies (usually carrots, potatoes, broccoli, corn and cauliflower, but I think just about any veggies would work), add some chicken breasts and a can of chicken soup or broth with whatever spices sound good on that particular day, and let it cook all day. We eat it over brown rice. Yum!
Also, www.nwamotherlode.com featured a website – http://crockpot365.blogspot.com/ – that offers a different crockpot recipe for every day of the year! I tried the chicken teriyaki and the Korean ribs and both were scrumptious.
So what’s everyone else eating? I’m always curious about what’s going on in your kitchen!
