Tasunkawitko's House Chicken Pot Pie

Tasunkawitko's House Chicken Pot Pie

Ron’s Notes: My son, Billy, and I came up with this as a way to use up some left-over chicken that I had smoked the day before. This stuff tastes GREAT and is so easy that a kid in junior high can make it. The smoke-permeated chicken provides a great aroma that brings images of bacon in a cast-iron skillet over a campfire, but the chicken inside is lean, juicy and full of flavor. This is an easy and satisfying go-to dish that will make a well-balanced meal. If you don’t have smoked chicken, use regular chicken and enjoy!

• 2-3 Tbsp. butter or margarine
• 1 onion, diced
• 4 cloves garlic, diced fine
• 1 large or two standard-sized envelopes of chicken gravy (an equal amount of gravy in a can or jar would be fine)
• 3-4 cups smoked chicken, cut into bite-sized cubes and pieces
• 2 cans of your favorite vegetables, or a combination, drained (an equal amount of frozen veggies would be even better!)
• 2 tsp. your favorite seasoning or herb/spice mix (or a little salt-n-pepper)
• 2 nine-inch pie crusts (or make your own)
• 2 cans biscuits (or make your own dough)
• 1 egg, beat with a fork, for brushing
• A couple of handfuls of shredded cheddar (or your favorite) cheese

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Sauté the onion and garlic in the butter until they are translucent, then add the chicken to heat it up and blend the flavors. Add the vegetables and seasoning to the sauté pan and heat the mixture through. At the same time, you should be preparing the gravy so that it can simmer on low and thicken up a bit.

Spray the bottoms of two pie pans with Pam or other cooking spray and line them with the pie crusts. Divide the mixture equally into each pie pan, then do the same with the gravy over the top of the chicken and vegetables. Spread the filling if necessary to reach the corners and edges of the crusts.

Open the cans of biscuits and flatten each one slightly as you lay them out across the top of the filling the same as you would line pepperoni around on a pizza. Don’t worry if there are a few small holes in the topping here and there as these holes will allow steam to escape. If any pie crust is sticking up from the sides of the pan, fold it in toward the biscuits. Brush the beaten egg across the biscuits and around the edges of the topping to seal. Sprinkle the cheese across the top.

Bake for 30 minutes or until the biscuits and cheese are a rich, crusty brown (usually about five minutes after you think they’re done). Remove the pies from the oven, allow to set for 5 minutes, and then dig in. There should be plenty left over for lunch the next day.

Like everyone else has said, what a great idea. We sure need people like you around here. One question: your recipe says "your favorite seasoning", what kind of seasoning did you use? It sounds like you nailed it. I will use exactly what you did to get the same results. Thanks for sharing!

norrell - for this particular recipe, we used mccormick (or is it schilling?) creole seasoning. the kind in the red camister with the creole food drawn on the front.

as far as my favorite seasonings, i like cavenders greek seasoning or lawrey's seasoned salt; they come in close second to alpine touch. if you get the chance, check this stuff out at as the old saying goes, i'd eat the @$$ out of a dead buffalo if it had that stuff on it!

due to blood pressure, i try to use only a small amount of these seaosnings and have learned to rely more on herbs and spices. i've been pleasantly surprised at the flavor combinations, but would like to duplicate some of the seasonings above without the salt.
