Chicken Pot, Chicken Pot, Chicken Pot Pie
Two weeks ago, we made an extremely delicious chicken pot pie recipe as our cooking challenge of the week. It was a very traditional recipe, including carrots, celery and onion as the veggie base. But with my picky husband, I knew we would need to improvise a little. He wasn't going to want carrots or celery, and I usually have to cut the onions in any recipe by at least half.
I was really quite proud of how we were able to take the original recipe and make it our own pretty easily. I honestly chalk it up to all the cooking and learning we've been doing all year! It makes it so much easier to understand how to substitute ingredients and revise the cooking plan. So instead of carrots and celery, we chopped up some potatoes and used them, along with some peas, as our veggie base instead.
We could not have been happier with the results of this dinner. We devoured every bite, and wished we'd had more! The chicken was super tender, and the crust turned out nice and flaky. This will definitely make it onto our list of go-to meals for future years to come.
