Delicious Chicken Pot Pie

Delicious Chicken Pot Pie

On these cold winter days in Michigan I love to cook warm, hearty meals.   Something to fill you up and keep you going all day long.  Long days that can involve a lot of snow plowing and shoveling! Then after you eat you can curl up with a nice warm blanket and take a nap!

My husband walking through the snow 17 inches of snow last year.   This past Sunday we received the same amount!

We look out our windows past the icicles hanging down to see snowmobiles whizzing by our house.  Michigan is definitely the winter wonderland! 

Out of this recipe I was able to make four little ramekins plus another 8x 8 pan full for a freezer meal for a lazy day.

Delicious Chicken Pot Pie

Print Recipe here

1 1/2 cups of chopped chicken breast
1 small onion (peeled and cut up)
2 cups of green beans
1 cup of peas
1/8 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp of poultry seasoning
1 1/2 cups of milk
3/4 cup of flour

Biscuit topping

2 cups of self-rising flour
1/3 cup shortening
3/4 cup of milk

Cook the chicken and onions in a pot with enough water to cover until done.  Drain the liquid saving 1- 1/2 cups.  Sit the chicken aside. In the saucepan stir the stock liquid with seasonings and 1/2 cup of milk. Bring back to a boil.

Mix the rest of the milk and flour together in a separate bowl. Slowly add a little of the hot liquid to the flour mixture and stir. Then pour mixture back into the pan of stock stirring constantly until thickened.

Pour beans, chicken, and peas into a large bowl.   Then add the sauce and stir to mix.  Pour into pans and top with biscuit topping.

Biscuit topping

Mix self-rising flour with the shortening and cut into small pieces.   Add milk to make a dough.  Roll out in to a rectangle and cut the dough into approximately 8 biscuits.

Pour mixture into pans and top with biscuits.

Bake at 450 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until the chicken mixture is hot and biscuits nicely browned.

Stay warm!
