I saw that there was an even posted for a fun recipe exchange but unfortunately I cannot attend. :( But I was still think about what I would have brought and wanted to share with all. I thought maybe we could post some of there easy recipes for everyone to have. My recipe is for simple chicken pot pie that is quick and easy and great on short notice. It has become a usual meal in our family.
"Cheater Pot Pie"
3 T butter or margarine melted
1 (16oz) package of frozen mixed vegetables
1 (5oz) can of chunk chicken drained
2 (10.75 oz) cans condensed cream of chicken soup (you can make this lighter with the 98% fat free)
1/2 cup milk (lighter version use skim)
salt and pepper to taste
1 (8oz) can of refrigerated crescent rolls (lighter version use reduced fat rolls)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly butter a 9x9 baking dish with some of your melted butter.
In saucepan over medium heat, combine mixed veggies and chicken. Cook until chicken is tender. Fold in soup. Pour in milk and mix until smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a boil.
Remove from heat. Open rolls and spread half of the roll on the bottom of the 9x9 dish. Then pour in mixture over top of rolls. Place remaining rolls on top of mixture and top with remaining melted butter.
Bake in oven for 15 min. Let stand for 10-15min before serving.
This will serve a family of 4 pretty easily. And it literally takes about 30-40min to prepare and bake.
Super easy and delicious!
GGGRRRRREAT idea Katie!!!! I love the title.... 30 min Meals!!! That is what moms need! last night I made a simple dinner, but it still took an hour PLUS cleanup! I love that Chix "cheater" pot pie! I am going to try it! It sounds great!
One of my easy and favorite things to do is crockpots... you through it all together when you ahve a chance, you smell it cooking all day, it does not heat up your house and it is ready to eat whenever you are!
Chichen or Roast CROCK POT
Any kind of chicken you want (bone in or out) OR any kind of steak (roast, etc.)
You can use cream of mushroom soup OR limpton onion soup mix, OR Montreal Steak seasoning, OR just any seasoning and fresh rosemary, etc. (change up the seasoning)
Put the Potatoes and Carrots on the bottom, then the onions, through on some seasoning, then through the whole slab of meat on top, maybe add 1/2 a cup of water then more seasoning on the meat. Cook on low for 7-8 hours (or high for 4 - but the meat will be reallllly tender if you cook on low) Do not lift the lid unless you are adding fresh herbs at the end or checking to see if it is done. ENJOY!
I would love to hear some other crockput recipies.
