Whole chicken expirement, day 2


Dinner 2: Chicken pot pie with a side salad of mixed greens, fennel, fuji apples, dried cranberries and gorgonzola

Never made pot pie before.  Actually never have eaten pot pie before.  So I was a little nervous about preparing this, especially with a friend who adores pot pies coming over for dinner.  I followed this recipe but made a few adjustments: http://thepioneerwoman.com/tasty-kitchen/recipes/main-courses/chicken-pot-pie-with-cheddar-old-bay-biscuit-topper/

My adjustments:
1. I used one can of cream of mushroom soup and two cream of chicken soups
2. Did not use Mrs. Dash or onion powder, just seasoned with sea salt and freshly ground pepper
3. Cubed up some creamer potatoes, precooked them using ziploc steamer bags and tossed them in 
4. I used pecorino cheese instead of cheddar
5. Doubled the old bay
6. Watered down the bisquick batter a bit more, it was a little thick with the current ratio
7. And of course, instead of the whole boneless chicken breast, I took my left over chicken, shredded the meat and used that instead

Actually kept some of the chicken meat, about 1/2 cup of it for dinner tomorrow.  I also saved all the bones to make stock.  

The result…I enjoyed it although I never have had pot pie before so I don't know if the flavor was right.  My friend said it was "brilliant" and that it "reminded her of home", which of course made me beam from ear to ear.
