This stuff is so magical I didn't snap a photo!
I will make this again soon I promise AND remember in my ravenous state to snap a picture to update you all.
I have been craving comfort food. In particular I’ve been craving some chicken pot pie something serious. So a few days ago I’d had enough and went and picked up the ingredients. Here’s what I learned from my shopping experience…Buy the canned chicken from costco. I spent on 2 cans of Swanson’s what I would have spent for SIX at costco. So just a warning. This is a modified recipe from something I found on Pinterest. I decided to make this recipe in a way that is more like biscuits and gravy style. My husband is not a fan of regular pot pie and I have to admit I’m not either. I’ve also made a version using Crescent rolls but I’ve found that they are almost too sweet. Anyway, this one was a huge hit at the dinner table. Here goes.
1 roll of Pillsbury Grands flaky layers biscuits in the original flavor
2 cans of chicken breast or about 2 cups of leftover rotisserie chicken you have on hand. Costco has awesome rotisserie chickens
1 10.5 oz can of cream of chicken soup
1-2 16 oz. package(s) of frozen mixed vegetables (I used a version with green beans, corn, peas, and carrots – this was amazing) (I only used one but it wasn’t enough…so 1.5 to 2 would be fabulous!)
2 Tbsp of vegetable oil (you could use avocado oil too)
Pepper to Taste
1 cup of milk
1 cup of chicken broth (I use the broth from the cans if I’m using canned chicken)
1 cup of all purpose flour (¾ cup of bread flour if that is all you have) – use more to thicken as needed or desired
½ medium onion finely chopped
3 to 4 medium sized potatoes cubed (small cubes)
4 tablespoons of butter
Follow the package instructions on the biscuits.
In a large skillet heat oil on medium-high heat. Saute the frozen vegetables for a few minutes and add in the potatoes and onion. Continue sauteeing until vegetables are tender. Remove from heat into a bowl and set aside.
Add butter to the pan and melt it, whisk the flour into the pan rapidly until bubbling and all mixed in. Add the milk stirring constantly until all lumps are out of the mix. Add in the broth and cream of chicken soup. Let simmer and thicken a little. This should take a minute or two. If it seems runny and less gravy like, try adding a little flour in a tablespoon at a time until you achieve the thickness you desire.
By this time the biscuits should be about done. Remove from the oven to cool.
Add in the mixture of veggies and the chicken to the gravy mix. Stir in and add back onto the heat for a few minutes just to warm everything up and get it mixed.
Serve and enjoy! <3
PS should you have leftovers this recipe reheats incredibly well!
