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.

  1. looks delicious!

  2. you moved :) found ya.

    • So glad you did…I still got all your comments over at my old blog. :) Thanks for reading!

      • Not sure how blogs work — whether you will see this, or if this is very old, but…… a friend recently made a pot pie for me and didn't cook the carrots first. I think maybe you both interpreted the recipe the same way. The "leftover" part of fresh or frozen veggies means they have already been cooked and are left over. But great recipe!! I am going to make it tonight as I LOVE a pot pie and this one sounds yummy!
