Cooking Together…Quick & Cheesy Chicken Pot Pie

This week’s recipe for Quick & Cheesy Chicken Pot Pie comes from Kitchen Simplicity

Here are my thoughts on the recipe:

Ease of preparation:
This one took a little time, but I think there are adjustments you could make so that it would be fairly quick. For example, I used fresh vegetables (broccoli, carrots, and parsnips,) so there was some time spent chopping, but if you used frozen vegetables, it would be much quicker. I also didn’t have any leftover chicken on hand so I had to cook some up…although that wasn’t super time consuming. Also, mixing up the biscuit mix took some time, but you could use Bisquick instead. But, now that I have the biscuit mix prepared, it will save me time next time around! Plus, I’m looking forward to making some pancakes with it too!

Overall opinion:
I liked this dish, and was happy to try it, because Chicken Pot Pie is one of my husband’s favorites. I also liked that it was made up of ingredients that I usually have on hand. The only disappointing thing was that the carrots were a bit al dente. I think that next time I might saute the veggies slightly before putting them in.

Husband’s thoughts:
He liked it, and went back for seconds…and thirds!

Would you have it again?
Yes, in fact, we’re having it again this week. I already have the biscuit mix prepared, so that will save me some time.

Did you omit or add anything?
I used Tandoori seasoning when I cooked the chicken ahead of time, and I think it gave the whole dish a great flavor! I just used the vegetables I had on hand which were carrots, parsnips, and broccoli.

How did you serve it?
Just on it’s own!

Would you change anything next time:
As I mentioned earlier, I think I will saute or cook the veggies a little beforehand, so that they won’t come out so crunchy. I also think peas would be a great addition.
