chicken pot pie

i’m playing mom for the next few days until i head back out to school because mom and carter are currently on their 35 hour trek to provo, utah…which means I’m cooking dinner, taking and picking mitchell up from school, taking him to practices,and doing the laundry! i’m enjoying it! tonight for dinner i made my momma’s chicken pot pie. i remember her making this a lot when i was in school, i’ve always loved it (especially the crust!)!

1. get the meat off a rotisserie chicken

2. make the white sauce (with eggs, vegetables, and the chicken)

3. mix up the buttermilk crust

4. put it in the oven for 45 minutes (or until the crust on top is lightly browned)

For the Sauce:

1/2 a stick of butter

3-4 tablespoons flour

2 cups chicken broth

2 cups milk

1/2 a pack of frozen vegetables

1 rotisserie chicken

3 boiled eggs, sliced

salt and pepper, to taste

In a medium sized pot, melt the butter. Once it is melted, add the flour. Whisk it in until it makes a thick paste. Add the chicken broth and milk. Let it cook until it thickens (has to reach a slight boil first).  Then add the cut up chicken, boiled eggs, and the frozen vegetables (uncooked). Pour it into a big greased casserole dish.

For the Crust:

1/2 stick butter, melted

2 cups self-rising flour

1 cup buttermilk

Mix all the ingredients together and spoon it on top of the chicken mixture.  Bake  at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.

i love home. {and this dinner brings me home even if i am 2000 miles away from it}
