4 Ingredient - Super Easy Chicken Pot Pie



I love chicken pot pie. Unfortunately, the frozen, store-bought variety can be heavy on calories, sodium, and enough dough to  leave you feeling like you've eaten a cardboard box.

I've come up with an incredibly quick, and relatively light, alternative that requires only FOUR ingredients, making it perfect for an easy week-night dinner.

Ingredients:

2 cups of chopped or shredded chicken meat from a rotisserie chicken

2 cups mixed frozen vegetables (microwaved for 1 minute on high to thaw)

1 package crescent roll pastry dough

1 can cream of chicken soup -or- better yet, prepare your own  quick (and easy) b├ęchamel sauce (butter, flour, and milk)


Assembly:

Preheat oven to 350 F.

I used individual oven-proof soup bowls. However, you could also use one larger (2-quart) casserole dish.

1. Layer chicken and vegetables in the bottom of the individual soup bowl or casserole dish

2. Heat cream soup or b├ęchamel sauce, pour over chicken and vegetables.

3. Gently stir soup and chicken and vegetables to evenly distribute.

4. Drape crescent roll pastry over bowl/casserole.

5. Bake for 15 - 18 minutes until pastry is golden.

The result is the perfect comfort food...not too heavy, and  wonderfully delicious. Try this recipe once and it will become one of your family's favorites.

Enjoy!

Collard Greens with White Beans - A Vegetarian Take on a Classic

Could a vegetarian version of collard greens ever compete with the traditional goodness of collard greens cooked with a smoked ham hock?

I was skeptical until I made this recipe. It is every bit as delicious. Taking the place of the ham hock is the rind of parmesan or other hard cheese. I keep a small plastic bag of cheese rinds in the freezer, they are the perfect flavor enhancer of stocks and soups, and now collard greens.

Similar recipes call for dried beans, but sine I live 10,400 feet above sea level, dried beans are always a challenge unless I'm using a pressure cooker. For this recipe, I opted for canned beans and am just as happy as can be.

This recipe is quick, easy, delicious, and so rich and satisfying a bowlful with a slice of garlicky olive oil toasted bread makes the perfect week night dinner. It is also a satisfying side dish.

Let's get cooking!

Open to the Spirit - Book Review

Open to the Sprit is like reading a letter from a friend. McKnight writes a very accessible introduction to the Holy Spirit and its role in our spiritual life. McKnight uses several stories from his life and others to share how the Holy Spirit consoles and deepens our daily spiritual walk. A terrific book for those seeking an introduction to a relationship with the Holy Spirit.

Dinner with Julia

What do Ina Garten and Martha Stewart have in common? Both women describe cooking through Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking when they were young as foundation to learning to cook.
Julia Child is an inspiration to most home cooks of a certain age. I found her so inspiring that at one time, I had all of her cookbooks, including a first edition of Mastering the Art of French Cooking, and had read almost every biography written about her, My Life in France, being my favorite. And yet! I confess that until this week, my cooking adventures in Mastering were limited to her omelet recipe, her iconic recipes for onion soup and Beef Bourguignon.
When the Food52 Cookbook Club on Facebook chose Mastering as its cookbook for the month, I jumped at the chance to finally use Julia’s first cookbook for its intended purpose.
I decided to start with something easy, a poached egg. I purchased the best organic eggs I could afford, read the recipe several times, and began. After I’d tur…
