Notabunny: Here's my cheater pot pie. I use store-bought rotisserie chicken, store-bought gravy, and store-bought pie crusts. It requires no cooking (just a little warming up) and is in the oven in a half an hour. Also, everybody loves it. I've had more requests for this at pot lucks than I can count. Enjoy!

Chicken Pot Pie

1/3 cup diced onion
1/3 cup diced carrot
1/3 cup diced celery
1/3 cup diced broccoli
About 2 tablespoons veggie oil

1/3 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon sage
1/4 teaspoon rosemary
1/4 teaspoon thyme
1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1 bay leaf

1/3 cup butter, melted

1 cup Heinz roasted turkey gravy
3/4 cup chicken broth
2/3 cup milk

3 cups diced cooked chicken or turkey
1/2 of 10-ounce package frozen peas

Preheat oven to 425*
Roll pie crust into a 9-inch pie plate

In a large pot, sauté the veggies in veggie oil until the onions are clear
Combine the dry ingredients in small mixing bowl and mix together
In a medium sauce pan, melt butter over medium heat and stir in dry ingredients
Stir the gravy, broth, and milk into butter mixture
Stirring constantly, bring to boil for 1 minute
Remove from heat, and pour gravy mixture into sautéed veggie mixture
Add chicken and frozen peas

Pour chicken mixture into pastry lined pie plate, add top crust, flute edge
Cut 4 slits in top crust
Bake about 35 minutes, or until golden brown


Serving size: 1

TelemonianAjax: Cornish hens for us. Faster cook time and the kids love getting their own bird.

They are fantastic spatchcocked and jerk seasoned on the grill. I wonder if I can get the missus on board...


Depends, does the missus like being spatchcocked?

Stuffed squashes with quinoa, kale, cranberries, and chickpeas, as a main dish, at Thanksgiving.

Better make sure the life insurance policy is paid up, maybe check into one of those pre-paid funeral plans.

Because you may not survive the farking you should give yourself.

Ham for Passover, doesn't sound to kosher.

Not really related, but the ham shown at the bottom below "Passover" made me giggle a bit.

The bigger question is do you spatchcock the missus with your Cutco scissors?

Mom said she wasn't going to do turkey this year. Because we're not doing extended family this year for obvious reasons and it didn't make sense to do a whole turkey for just the 5 of us. Which makes a lot of sense.

Friday she changed her mind and will be doing a turkey after all.

Mental note, buy proper poultry shears. I think I've pushed my luck spatchcocking chicken with a sharp knife quite long enough

I'm guessing you've never used or know of Cutco scissors.

No?

You can cut anything with Cutco scissors - they are unbelievable - expensive, but worth it.


I was unfamiliar too.  With a name like Cutco, I was thinking more like this.

Same. I order our groceries for pickup and whoever picked our hens went with a very "don't talk to me or my son ever again" aesthetic so someone is getting a freakishly tall bird on Thursday.

My dad, who died in September, found that meme very funny when applied in daily life and we'd always laugh together when we could use it, so unpacking the grocery order to find an example was like a sweet message from Dad.
