I have been craving comfort food since the temperatures here in Phoenix have finally dropped! In one day we went from have the AC on in the car to turning on the heater! Crazy!! Here is my all time super easy Chicken Pot Pie Recipe

Chicken Pot Pie

This Recipe is a collection of several and put into oven proof crocks and then baked into individual servings of YUM!   This is how it starts…

Chicken Pot Pie/Dumplings

1 small onion chopped
2-3 stalks celery chopped
2 carrots diced
1-2 red potato’s chopped into medium pieces
Saute in 1 tablespoon of olive oil until medium soft. (they still have some cooking to do)

2 Cups Chopped or Shredded cook Chicken
1 Can Buttermilk Biscuits cut into 1/4’s and dipped into 2 Tablespoons melted Butter (you may only be using 3 or 4 of the Biscuits so reserve the others for baking)

In the meantime prepare 2 cans of Cream of Chicken Soup or
Make this amazing recipe of your own “Cream of Whatever Soup Mix”  Recipe Here

I have made this and it is so easy and very handy to have in the pantry.

Heat to simmer and add sauteed veggies stir together and cook over medium/low heat for 7 minutes,  add the Chicken and pour into individual crocks or oven proof bowls.

Top with Buttered Biscuit pieces  and place bowls on a heavy flat baking pan. Bake at 400 for 10 minutes.  Check oven at about 8 minutes just to be sure not to cook biscuits to long (everything else is cooked).

This will be very hot!!!  Be careful!

Chicken Salad Wrap with Creamy Italian Dressing & Havarti Cheese

This is a go-to quick and easy lunch I make often.  When I bake Chicken Breasts in my Dijon, Honey, Worcestershire Sauce and White Wine Vinegar Marinade, I ALWAYS throw a few extra in for wraps.

Chicken Salad Wrap

I used about 1/3 of a Baked Chicken Breast, Chopped for this Wrap.

Recipe for Chicken Salad Wrap with Creamy Italian Dressing and Havarti Cheese

1 Spinach Wrap Tortilla (I used Mission)
1/3 Cup chopped cooked chicken breast
2 Tbsp Cream Cheese
2 Green Onions, diced
Lettuce chopped, I used Iceberg you can use any on hand.  I used about 1 cup
2 Slices of Havarti Cheese from the Deli
2 Tbsp Marie’s Creamy Italian Dressing
Start out by laying down a sheet of wax paper and place the Spinach Wrap in top, this will make it so much easier to roll and keep those yummy ingredients inside.  First spread some cream cheese on the tortilla, then add the green onions, cheese, lettuce and chicken.  Top with the dressing, I used a small spatula.   Assemble as shown in the above pictures and roll it up!  I then cut it in half on a diagonal.  Then enjoy!

Orange Chicken that is better than take out!! This is now a staple!

I am back!!  I have been watching blogs and working and just learning from the expert cooking blogger’s, as they are amazing!  In that time , I have perfected (in my humble opinion) some new favorites.  Orange Chicken is one of them!   I Usually bake 4 chicken breasts and plan several meals around them.  This time I marinated the chicken breasts in 2 tablespoons of whole mustard, 2 tablespoons of honey a teaspoon of rice wine vinegar and a teasppon of Worcestershire sauce, in a gallon size plastic bag, over-night.   Did I mention yet that I LOVE my rice cooker!  Perfect every time!

I found this recipe first on http://blogchef.net/orange-chicken-recipe/ The sauce is amazing!!!  I follow the sauce recipe to the tee.   I slice up some chicken from my earlier baked chicken stash, and add to the sauce after the sauce is simmering on a very low temp and the rice is cooking in that special rice cooker 🙂   The chicken will warm in the sauce and when  the rice is ready, just scoop some chicken and sauce over your perfectly cooked rice and sprinkle with sliced green onions!!  PERFECT!!  I am very happy!  I have an allergy to  eggs and I say “why does anyone add them?”   This is a keeper!  Enjoy!
