Easy Peasy Yummy Chicken Parm

Chicken Pot Pie

Evening! I have made a few Chicken Pot Pie recipes here before. The family loves them all. I usually use biscuit dough or puff pastry, but I improvised with pop can crescent dough ; )

2 cooked chicken breasts (or rotisserie chicken) 2 potatoes, diced
1 bag frozen mixed veggies (corn, peas, etc.)
1 small container of sliced mushrooms
1 teaspoon each of salt, pepper, poultry seasoning, celery salt, nutmeg, garlic powder, and onion powder
2 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce
8 oz. chicken-flavored cooking stock
1 cup heavy cream
1 container of pop tube crescent dough


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In a medium to large dutch oven, add a bit of oil to your pan. Over med.high heat, cook your potatoes until just fork tender, about 8 minutes.

Make a rux using equal parts butter and flour. I did 3 tablespoons of each. Then I added in my chicken stock and whisked well. If I had canned chicken condensed soup, I would have added that instead, but I did not!

Add in frozen vegetables, shredded chicken, and your seasonings in the dutch oven. I cooked until everything was warmed through, about 15 minutes or so. The last few minutes I stirred in my heavy cream.

I added the mixture in my pie pan, then covered it with the crescent dough. It was a hit!

Chicken Cordon Bleu

Trying to catch up here! Cooking so many yummy meals! Here is an oldie, but goodie 😉 I have a few different versions of this, but this time I covered it in cheese!

Pounded out 4 chicken breasts. Rebecca really loves helping me with this. She says it helps her anxiety 😉 Then I placed one piece of deli ham and 1 1/2 pieces of Swiss cheese.
Rolled them up and stuck them together with a toothpick.
Covered with more Swiss cheese and baked for 40 minutes at 350. I served them with mashed potatoes. My trick is to cook the potatoes in milk and a stick of butter. Then I whip them up with the liquid a little bit at a time until they are super creamy and lump free!
The link at the top has a great leftover use for this in a baked pasta dish. Rebecca ate all the leftovers for our weekly clean out the fridge night. The rest of us CRUSHED all the leftover spaghetti and meatballs.

Seared Chicken Quarters with Random Fridge Veggies

Hey everyone! I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy out there. Crazy times. We are trying to be creative over here with the food we already have in the fridge, pantry, and freezer. The hubby is the grocery guy as of late. I do miss going, but he already has to go out for work, so it is just safest if he runs by after work every few days to get what we need.

Mise en Place- All veggies chopped- half an onion, 2 carrots, 2 stalks of celery, 1/2 a green and yellow pepper, and 1 yellow squash.
Brown 3 chicken quarters (legs and thighs) in a bit of EVOO. About 6 minutes on each side. Take them out and cook all your veggies until soft. About 5 minutes if you chopped them in small dices.
Add 1/3 stock, wine, or water to make sure you get all those brown yummy chicken bits off the bottom of the pan. Add your chicken back in, crispy side up. Put on medium low meat and leave uncovered. Cook for 40 minutes or until the chicken is completely cooked through.
Yummy Perfection!
Serve with a side of couscous (or the starch of your choice). No leftovers 😉

Sweet Chili Chicken Wings

Some people are very confused by my eating habits, so I thought I would clear it up for anyone reading this. I mostly eat vegan/vegetarian, tons of seafood, and occasionally meat (mostly at home if I make it for the family) . Tonight I ate chicken wings. I was watching a cooking show, and they just sounded really good, so I made them for dinner.

It all started with the chicken wings. I put them all in a bowl and tossed them with a couple tablespoons of olive oil, and salt & pepper. Then I put them skin side up on a sheet pan and cooked them in a 400 degree oven for about 45 minutes.

Then I warmed up some of this yummy sauce I found at Sprouts…

Half took a dip in the sauce and half stayed Plain Jane. We like to eat mac and cheese with our wings, and I added some peas for a veggie 😉 It was very tasty!
