Turkey Pot Pie

I have been wanting to make chicken pot pies for a while, and my friend Ashley made them the other night and posted pictures & a recipe on her blog The 3 G's. This inspired me to make them sooner than later. So tonight I made turkey pot pies, fresh squeezed strawberry lemonade, and for desert caramel apple pie.

I couldn't find a recipe that I liked for the pot pies so I made my own:
Ingredients ~

  • 2 cans of Pillsbury Crescent Recipe Creations
  • 1/3 cup butter or margarine
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 3/4 cups Progresso® chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken or turkey
  • 1 cup refrigerated cooked diced potatoes with onions (Simply Potatoes)
  • 1 1/2 cups celery and carrots
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • Heat oven to 400°F
  • In 2-quart saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion; cook 2 minutes, stirring frequently, until tender. Stir in flour, salt and pepper until well blended. Gradually stir in broth and milk, cooking and stirring until bubbly and thickened.
  • Stir in chicken and mixed vegetables. Remove from heat. Spoon chicken mixture into crust-lined pan. Top with second crust; seal edge and flute. Cut slits in several places in top crust.
  • In small bowl, mix egg and water. Brush mixture over dough.
  • Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until crusts are golden brown.

Turkey Pot Pie Part 2

The crusts are rectangle so I cut off the extra and made a personal size caramel apple pie with the leftover crust.

Ingredients ~
  • 1 small apple cut into small chunks
  • 4 tablespoons butter - melted
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons caramel
  • leftover crust from pot pies
  • leftover egg wash from pot pies
  • Set oven to 400°F
  • In bowl melt butter
  • Add apple, brown sugar, cinnamon, and caramel to melted butter and mix together.
  • Pour filling into pie crust
  • Brush top with egg wash
  • Bake 10 -12 minutes or until golden brown
  • Top with caramel and whip cream & Enjoy!

Pie crust - I rolled out the leftover crust so that I could fold over the edges to make the top of the pie without having to use two pieces.

Chicken & Chips

So on Sunday my friend Amy made Fish & Chips and posted it on her blog The Dinner Hour. Tonight I didn't know what to make for dinner and seeing 2 potatoes sitting on the counter Amy's dinner came to mind. I changed it up a little and made Cajun Chips and Honey battered chicken strips. Oh and I made a ranch & dill dip. It all tasted great.

Check out Amy's blog for step by step directions!
