Make It Monday


Welcome to the first Make It Monday! Make It Monday will bring you a variety of things you can make. Everything from recipes, to bath & body products, to jewelery, etc.

Today I want to share a wonderful recipe for a homemade Chicken Pot Pie & why this recipe means so much to me.

My firstborn daughter arrived 6 weeks early, without any prior warning whatsoever. Being a control freak & a huge planner, this really threw me for a loop, and taught me some important life lessons. During that time we had many friends from church & family members who took good care of us....bringing much needed preemie diapers, clothes, and wonderful homemade meals. Would you not agree as women we tend to "take care" of people by feeding them?

A friend we went to church with at that time, Paige Kee, brought a wonderful homemade chicken pot pie & a yummy strawberry shortcake. How I remember that specific meal 6 years later, I don't know.

Here's what's so great about this recipe.
I do not like chicken pot pie.
I've tried many microwave versions, etc. trying to match this one...and none match it. I remember eating that chicken pot pie for days, even when my family staying with & helping me at that time , were begging to go out & get something else! ;) For some reason, it was truly a comfort food to me at that time.
Maybe cuz that little Chicken Pot Pie, along with so much of the other food brought to our home, was made with love.

Homemade Chicken Pot Pie

3 Chicken Breasts, shredded or cut up
2 Cans mixed veggies (Veg-All) - drained
2 cans Cream of Potato Soup (or cream of chicken)
3/4 c. milk
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 Pillsbury Ready-made pie crust-not frozen-in the dairy section, red flat box, 2 pie crusts per box

Combine all ingredients. Put 1 crust in pie dish. Pour mixture in the crust, and 2nd crust goes on top. Pinch crust to seal. Slit top crust several times on top....or poke holes in the top with a fork. Bake @ 375 for 40-45 minutes. Enjoy!

That sounds delicious but I know my family would never eat it. It has vegetables. ;-)
