Recipe Interlude II : Chicken Pot Pie

Chicken Pot Pie

This is the leftover vege special since you can pretty much use anything you have in your vege drawer, here's how i made it today

take about a pound or two of chicken, like 2 big cutlets, trim off anything ewwy and cube it up, lightly brown it in a pan then remove into a bowl and clean the pan of the fat. (don't worry about it being cooked all the way cause its going in the oven, just brown it

Cut up small and fry up a pile of veggies
1 small onion
3 cloves garlic
a hand full of string beans cut up
1 potato cut small
1 big portobello mushroom
1 carrot
1 celery stick
some left over broccoli
pepper, salt, thyme, bay seasoning, parsley
i fried all these in olive oil, then tossed in half a cup of chicken broth and let them steam up a bit
take off the heat
ok now mix in the chicken, the mushrooms, the precooked broccoli and add a can of condensed cream of mushroom soup in a casserole dish
wait patiently for people to come home for the last step
make some guac to snack on as an appetizer and open a bottle of wine
20-25 minutes before eating do he last step
top the dish with hungry jack biscuits from a popping canister, and bake til golden brown
