The Great 2012 Cooking Extravaganza! Day 15

Welcome back my friends!

Tonight’s experiment was less than I expected, but it was edible…

Chicken and veggies

1 pound chicken thighs, boneless and skinless

4-6 medium sized potatoes, washed, cut into 1/2 inch pieces, with or without skins, your choice

1 pound baby carrots, washed

1/2 cup chopped scallions

1/2 cup chopped celery

1 tsp rosemary leaves, dried

1 box chicken broth

1/2 box (you know, that chicken broth box you just emptied) water

Salt and pepper to taste

Place all of the above in a crock pot, cook on low approx 7 hours, or high 3 1/2 hours

Remove chicken from crock pot, but allow veggies to continue to cook while you prepare the chicken pies

Chicken Pies

Cooked chicken, chopped

Phyllo dough, thawed

1/2 cup heavy cream

Salt and pepper to taste

1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Cut rounds slightly larger than a standard muffin cup from phyllo dough, and push into the bottom of muffin cups

Bake 10 minutes at 400 degrees, remove from oven

Chop cooked chicken, mix with heavy cream, salt and pepper, spoon into partially cooked shells

Bake an additional 15 minutes at 400 degrees

Sprinkle with shredded cheddar cheese, and bake another 5-10 minutes or until cheese is melted

Serve along with carrots and potatoes from crock pot.

This was rather bland, I expected more, but it was edible.  To make up to my family for this less than stellar meal, I’ve got banana bread cooking right now!  No, not from scratch, box mix, but I KNOW it will be good!

Making a pot roast tomorrow, I KNOW that will come out well!  Plus, leftovers can become BBQ beef sandwiches VERY easily!

Until tomorrow, eat well, be well!
