Busy Mom’s Chicken Pot Pie

Make use of your grocer’s rotisserie chicken and dinner will be on the table in a flash!  Serve with a fruit salad.

What you’ll need:

  • 8-9 frozen tea biscuits (if you only have regular-sized biscuits, use 4-5)
  • 1 rotisserie chicken from your grocer’s deli
  • 1 (16-ounce) package frozen broccoli, cauliflower and carrot vegetable medley
  • 1 (1.6-ounce) package garlic herb sauce mix
  • 1 1/2 cups low-fat milk
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
What you’ll do:
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Bake biscuits 10 minutes; remove from oven.  (Biscuits should begin to rise, not brown.)
  • Remove skin from rotisserie chicken, pull meat from bones, chop chicken into bite-size pieces.  Set chicken aside.  (You want about 2 cups chicken.)
  • Microwave the vegetable medley for 4 minutes.
  • In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine the milk, the garlic herb sauce mix and the broth.
  • Bring to a boil, add 1 tablespoon butter, reduce the heat and allow the sauce to thicken.
  • Add chicken, vegetables and Italian seasoning.  Simmer about 10 minutes.
  • Transfer mixture into a baking dish.  Arrange the biscuits on top.  Dot the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter on each biscuit.
  • Bake until the biscuits are browned and the chicken mixture is hot.
