Happy Thursday! I hope you’re having a wonderful week! We’ve made it past hump day and are heading quickly towards the weekend. Woo-hoo!
Do you want something very easy to make this weekend? Something warm and soothing? Comfort food?
I’ve got just the thing you need.
I adapted this recipe from my grandparents’ neighbor, Mrs. Iris. Long story of how I got the recipe, so we won’t go there. You will love it, all the same.
The original recipe calls for no veggies – just some cooked, chopped chicken, boiled eggs, and some cream soups – all topped with the quick-stir bread topping mixture.
Any-hoo, my family loves this chicken pie with green peas or mixed vegetables added. It’s become our version of chicken pot pie – only there’s no pot, really.
We start with lining a prepared glass baking dish with cooked, chopped chicken. (It’s a wonderful way to use leftover chicken.) Spread a can each of
the bad stuff cream of mushroom and cream of celery soups. Pour one cup of chicken broth over all.
Spread a half bag of thawed frozen mixed vegetables (or more, if you like) over the soups, and top with boiled egg slices.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
In a small bowl, mix together the breaded topping, and pour it over all.
Bake at 350 degrees for who knows how long. Mrs. Iris left that info off her recipe, so I baked the original recipe about 30 minutes. But, with the veggies added, it took about 45 minutes to get the nice browning on top.
Spoon it into any bowl or mug.
Here’s the recipe for you to print or share.
- 2 to 2-1/2 cups cooked, chopped chicken
- 1 can cream of mushroom soup
- 1 can cream of celery soup
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 8 oz. frozen mixed vegetables, thawed
- 3 sliced boiled eggs
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 stick butter, melted
- 1 cup milk
- Layer prepared baking dish (9x13 is good) with chicken pieces. Spoon the soups over and spread carefully. Pour broth over all, and spread with thawed vegetables. Top with egg slices and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
- Prepare topping and pour over "pie". Bake 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes (depending on pan size), until brown.
I hope you enjoy this dish of warm, cozy goodness this cold weekend!
