Today I have a recipe for you....yesterday I shared my book group table setting for our monthly meeting, which I hosted. We are a small group and our book selections and gatherings are pretty loose, but no matter what, a simple meal and some great conversation are part of every meeting. Comfort food is always on the menu and my dish of choice was a Chicken Pot Pie, a recipe a friend shared long ago, which is now a family favorite. I thought you all would enjoy this recipe, because not only is this great with chicken, it is a wonderful way to use your left over Thanksgiving turkey.
CHICKEN POT PIE
· 1 Small Onion, minced
· 1 Stalk Celery, minced (I substitute red pepper)
· 2 Zucchini, minced
· 1-2 Carrots, minced
· 2 TBSP Parsley
· 1 1/4 TSP Sage
· 1 TBSP Tarragon, scant
· 6 TBSP Margarine
· 1/4 Cup & 2 TBSP Flour
· 1 3/4 Cups Chicken Stock
· 3/4 Cup Heavy Cream ( I use 1/2 & 1/2 or a combo of cream and skim milk)
· 3/4 TSP Lemon Juice
· 2 Cups Cooked Chicken or Turkey
· Fresh ground Pepper to taste
Prepared Pie Crust (make your own or use a store bought crust)
Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees. Melt butter over medium heat. Sauté vegetables for 5 minutes. Add herbs, sauté additional 5 minutes. Stir in flour and cook until it bubbles. Gradually add chicken stock, stirring. Add cream, bring to boil, stirring; lower heat, simmer 1 minute. Season, add chicken and lemon juice. (Can be made 1 day ahead.) Put mixture in pie shell, cover with top shell and bake in pre-heated oven for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake for 35 more minutes. Let cool and serve.
Enjoy! Let me know if you try it.... Happy Thanksgiving friends!
