Welcome to 2015 and boy have I missed talking with all of you. Today is going to be a long post; so get that cup of joe, a comphee seat and a warm blanket. So let's dive on in shall we?
My two glam girls! I love spending the holiday with these two. Never a dull moment or a clean house when they are around. They keep Fred and I on our toes and wide awake at 6am! One of their favorite things to do is play dress up. And dress up in my closet, jewelry box and purse stash. One year I gave them a box full of all of the Disney dresses.
But to no end, they still end up in my closet. I just can't get mad at these two; no matter how hard I try. One of their other favorite activities is to help me cook. They love my Chicken Pot Pie.
My favorite recipe comes from a cookbook that is no longer available in print;
The Perfect Recipe: Getting It Right Every Time -- Making Our Favorite Dishes the Absolute Best They Can Be I know your first thought, Pamela Anderson from Baywatch had a cookbook? Nope wrong gal! But this author Pamela Anderson has some amazing recipes. This cookbook is available on Kindle thru Amazon.
You start by sauting chicken in EVOO; I used both dark and white meat. Then you saute your vegetables, I used carrots, onions, garlic and celery.
Next up is Bechamel Sauce. My sauce consisted of butter, flour, chicken stock, milk, thyme and sherry. Basic instructions: Melt butter when foaming subsides, add flour; cook for 1 minute. Whisk in chicken broth, milk and thyme. Bring to a simmer, reduce heat to low and continue to simmer, stirring until sauce fully thickens. Season with salt, pepper and sherry.
I poured the chicken and vegetables into the pan; but you are suppose to do it the opposite way. Any woo, at this point add the peas if you want and the chopped parsley.
Stir really well.
Poor into the pie shell.
Put the second pie crust on top & Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes.
