Helloooooooo fellow potato lovers! This past weekend, my family and I had a shindig at my place where we tried out a new recipe. The night consisted of us eating an entire box of
Girl Scout cookies and watching the cops chase one of my neighbors across the street. You know, the usual.
Anyways, there was one more amazing thing that came out of that night. You guessed it, there was a meal made with potatoes. This recipe, originally posted by sixsistersstuff.com, was revamped by my sister and my mom to include potatoes. They must really love me, after all. Without further adieu, I give you:
Biscuit Chicken Pot Pie (With Potatoes!)
- 1/2 cup of chopped carrots
- 3 to 4 cups of diced potatoes
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1/2 cup of all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 2 cups of chicken broth
- 1 regular size can of cream of chicken soup
- 2 cups (about 1 pound) of cooked, shredded chicken
- 3/4 cup frozen peas, thawed
- 1 refrigerated package of Pillsbury Grands Biscuits (8 biscuits)
How you make it:
Preheat your oven to precisely 400 degrees. In the meantime, cook the chicken and defrost the vegetables. We used frozen vegetables, but I suppose you could use unfrozen ones too. Use your discretion. Combine the cooked chicken and veggies and leave aside.
Add butter to a large pan, and when melted, mix in the flour and stir it for one minute on medium heat. Whisk in the milk, chicken broth, and cream of chicken soup. Let the sauce simmer enough to thicken, usually for about a minute. Transfer the veggies and chicken into the sauce and stir it in. (If your sauce seems too thick, add a dash more of chicken broth and milk.
Pour this filling into a 13 x 9 inch dish and bake for 18 minutes. Take the dish out of the oven and add the uncooked biscuits on top. Put the dish back in the oven and cook for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the biscuits are fully cooked. (We had a slight issue with a few biscuits being raw, so be sure to check them before taking them out of the oven completely). Let cool for five minutes and voila! A yummy dinner. (If you don’t want to let it cool, I understand. I get impatient when I’m hangry, too).
There you have it! A great alternative to chicken pot pie with the greatest food in the world, which are obviously potatoes. Enjoy!
