To look at me, a little old lady with white hair (well, I USED to have white hair before I began chemo), you would never guess at some of my life experiences. But this week was a first for me ... I made my Very First Chicken Pot Pie. And after doing so, I don't know why it took me so long!
Perhaps its because the first pot pies I experienced were those cheap foil-panned things at the grocery store. They were so disappointing that I stopped buying them decades ago. Yes, Decades. As in 30 years or more!
This week I had some leftover chicken and I LUV homemade biscuits so I followed Michael Chu's recipe over at http://www.cookingforengineers.com/ to serve up this all-American dish. My Beloved was smitten! (And he's not even an engineer!)
What I like about Chu's recipe is that the sauce is cooked from scratch using broth and milk and NOT using that cream soup in the familiar red/white label. So if you know how to toss together a simple cream sauce (aka gravy), you can put together this yummy dish.
I did notice that Chu's biscuit recipe made a more scant topping than his photo shows. Other than that? Yummy! (p.s. When baking biscuits the secret is to NOT knead the dough. Barely pat together well enough to be able to roll out on the counter top and cut. )
Changes I would make to Chu's recipe...perhaps increase the veggies by one-third. Still...superb recipe as is.
