Episode 5 of SKG-TV: Chicken Pot Pie with Fresh Herbs

This classic Southern comfort food dish doesn’t disappoint. I use a store bought pie crust to save time, and the fresh herbs in the filling really make this chicken pot pie stand out. Enjoy!

Chicken Pot Pie with Fresh Herbs
Ingredients:

  • 3 celery stalks, diced
  • 3 medium carrots, peeled and diced
  • 1 large yellow onion, diced
  • 4 Tablespoons of bacon grease or butter
  • 1 Whole rotisserie chicken, shredded with skin removed
  • 1/4 cup All Purpose Flour
  • 2 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup white wine, such as Pinto Grigio
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 Tablespoon each of fresh basil, thyme and oregano, chopped
  • 1 9-inch store bought refrigerated pie crust
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Directions:
Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees. In a cast iron skillet over medium heat, get the bacon grease hot. Add in the celery, carrots and onions and saute for about 5 minutes until softened. Season with salt and pepper. Add shredded chicken and flour, stirring to combine. Cook for a few minutes. Pour in the chicken broth, white wine and heavy cream. Allow the mixture to cook and thicken for about 4 minutes. Season again with salt and pepper, and add in the fresh herbs. Remove mixture from the heat. Taste to make sure the dish is seasoned properly. Using a rolling pin, roll out the pie crust in a circle wide enough to drape over the edges of your pan, not too thin. Gently lay the crust over the top of the skillet, tucking the edges over the sides of the pan. Cut an x in the center of the crust to vent. Bake for 30 minutes until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling. Let cool for 10 minutes before cutting. Garnish with thyme if desired. Serve with bread and salad to round out the meal.

Keep Calm and Carry on Cooking: Exciting Video Announcement Reveals My Next Steps

With only a few days before Easter to go, I know I should be writing about ham and sharing egg-cellent (ha!) recipes. The truth is, there’s something else weighing heavy on my mind that I’ve been dying to share with you. Since I started my food blog in 2011, a large part of my inspiration has come from this Julia Child quote: “Find something you’re passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it.” 2016 is the year I take that philosophy to the next level. You can attribute it to 10 years of being in the workforce or the clarity that comes with the decade of turning 30, but no matter how you slice it, experiencing a situation such as When My Job Quit Me, has provided raw perspective.  Continue reading “Keep Calm and Carry on Cooking: Exciting Video Announcement Reveals My Next Steps”
