For some reason, I’ve had a really hard time deciding what to make our Bargain Meal this week! But it seems that I have pot pie on the brain. I just keep imagining that whole chicken, simmering to falling-apart goodness, and drooling …
Bargains of the week:
whole chicken 79 cents/lb
gallon milk 2.50
This recipe is from Cooks.com. To get the cooked chicken, boil a whole chicken until it completely cooked through and falling apart (in a pressure cooker is a great way to do this quickly). Then you will have cooked chicken and chicken broth! Save the extra chicken and broth for another meal.
Chicken Pot Pie
1 cup cooked chicken
10 ounces frozen mixed vegetables (instead of frozen, you could cut up baby carrots, which are on sale 1.29/bag)
1 small potato, cooked & diced
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour
2 cups chicken broth
1 cup Bisquick baking mix
1/2 cup milk
Melt butter in a medium size saucepan. Add flour and cook over medium heat, about five minutes. Add chicken broth and heat until mixture just begins to boil. Reduce heat; add chicken, potato and mixed vegetables until heated through. Pour into a 2 quart casserole dish. Combine Bisquick, milk, and egg; pour over chicken mixture. Bake at 400 F. for 30 minutes or until golden.
Serving Size: 4
