the chicken pot pie recipe ... or use leftover turkey

Sarah requested my recipe for chicken pot pie from last week.

I thought I totally made this up... and have only done it twice.... so it is still in the experimental works.

Then I made it with turkey leftovers last night and realized my "made up" recipe is pretty much on the side of the Bisquick box called "chicken & dumplings" or the website has chicken pot pie too.... but I've never added an egg.

Here I was thinking I was so clever. oh well. it's not that hard. so it is easy to whip up when you are in the mood for old fashioned meal.

anyway, here is what I did last night...................

1 chicken breast BOILED, shredded or leftover turkey
1 can low salt cream of chicken soup
1/3 cup water
2/3 cup milk - we use 1%
1/2 package frozen mixed veggies

1 cup Bisquick biscuit mix
1/3 cup milk

in small pan mix the cold chicken and veggies with the water. while it is warming up make the biscuit and milk mixture in the bowl you are going to bake everything in.

I like it better like dough, not sticky. Roll it up in a ball and take out of the bowl.

pour the soup and milk into the pan with the veggies & chicken and bring to light boil.
Pour into baking dish. pepper to taste.

rip pieces of dough and lay on top of soup.

bake @ 350 for about 20 minutes... until dough is lightly browned and soup is bubbling around edges.

Nice - perhaps I can leave out the chicken and just use veges ( I'm not a big meat eater...:-) )
