I found this great recipe in a Rachel Ray magazine my mother sent me in Togo. Since I knew we were headed back to the States soon, I started clipping recipes that I thought sounded great and easy for dinner upon our return. I tried this one out last night and really liked it. Nathan called in “bland” but I just think he’s just missing spicy West African food. I can’t cook “spicy” every night, can I? I thought it was warm and comforting…savory and not spicy, which is not a problem for me!
So I grabbed this rotisserie chicken (again, spent most yesterday in the car, so needed something fast!) at Earth Fare:
And then shredded it:
And added it to the combo of carrots, celery, onions, mushrooms and a little wheat flour and cream (and ultimately a little parmesan cheese).
I then popped a fresh loaf of french bread out of the bread maker and sliced it.
I placed the slices on top of the hot mixture and topped the bread with olive oil.
It then went into a 400 degree oven for 15 min (until the bread had browned). And here is the final potpie:
Again, not so pretty, maybe a bit bland, but overall I was pleased. And I love how the recipe didn’t call for exact amounts of ingredients. A great recipe to use what you have in the house and throw together a warm comforting meal. I have a couple of other potpie recipes that I may try soon…The cold weather is still here but fleeting so I want to get all of my “comfort” recipes in! Do you have a favorite potpie recipe? Share it with me and I’ll cook it!
