What's on your Menu

                        CHICKEN POT PIE CASSEROLE

Had leftovers from last nights dinner..... 

Since it snowed most of the day I thought I would make us a hearty Casserole.

Doesn't this look yummy.....

So here is my recipe.

cut up chicken leftovers about 4 cups.
1 celery stalk chopped
1/2 spanish onion chopped
1 whole carrot diced
1 can of cream of mushroom soup
1 1/2 cup of milk (I use skim)
4 leftover potatoes chopped into cubes
frozen peas 2 cups
1 tsp salt and pepper
a dash of poultry seasoning
1 tbsp of butter
1/2 cup of flour

Saute your onion and celery and carrot in butter
then add your other ingredients.
add flour to a bit of milk to make a paste then add it to the mix.
watch that it doesn't stick to the bottom of your pan.
Pour in to 2 1/2 quart dish

Now you are ready for the biscuit topping

2 cups all purpose flour
4 tsp of Baking powder
2 tsp of sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp of cream of tarter

blend then add 1/2 cup of butter
mix till crumbly
then add your 2/3 cup of milk.
Make sure it is sticky.

Roll out onto a floured board and knead .
then you are ready to roll out the pastry

I use these cutters

then layer them around the top of your mix.

I filled in spaces with leftover pastry.

Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
 serves 4 to 6 people

I guess you could use leftover turkey as well.

Enjoy!!             Hope you will try this recipe.

                                            As always thanks for stopping by.

  2. Hello Linda,
    Oh, this sounds delicious! I have a recipe using leftover chicken or turkey and noodles but I would much rather the biscuit topping. Thank you for sharing the recipe with us. Hope you're off to a wonderful week. We haven't received any snow here on PE Island yet and I hope it holds off for a while yet!
