So, it’s a little hard to afford Claim Jumper chicken pot pie when you’re making bank as a CNA. Yet, there it is, the craving for comfort food with only an hour to spare….the solution? This recipe!
Blazin’ Fast Chicken Pot Pie
Faster than a drug seeker in the ED with a call light, this yummy recipe is just the thing for a long night of studying or work!
1 – 10 oz can condensed cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup milk
1 to 1-1/2 cups frozen carrots/peas/corn vegetable mix or similar
1 can chicken breast (drained) or 1-1/2 cups cut-up cooked chicken
1/2 cup buttermilk baking mix
1/2 cup milk
Note: to make this recipe more heart-healthy, use skim milk, low-fat baking mix and just the egg-white or Egg-beaters
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Farenheit
In a 1 quart oven-safe casserole dish, stir together soup and milk until thoroughly blended. Stir in vegetable mix, then microwave on high for 3 minutes.
In a small bowl, stir together egg, baking mix and remaining milk.
Remove casserole from microwave, top heated mixture with batter (will be a little runny, that’s OK). Place casserole in preheated oven, bake uncovered for 20 minutes (crust should be nicely browned).
Serves two quite nicely (or one hospital security guard, or one member of the Lift Team)
