Chicken Pot Pies

PotPie-13

My friend Denise makes amazing pot pies. I occasionally pull them out as emergency I-don’t-want-to-cook food, and have had a number of requests for the recipes. So with Denise’s help, here it is. Also, the filling makes quite a bit. We did a double batch when I took these photos, and had to do multiple batches of crust to make all the pies. So I’m afraid that the dough and the filling amounts don’t match, but trust me, you’ll WANT extra of these pies. Speaking of which, I think I need to go get one myself for lunch…

First, we’ll make the crust dough. In a large bowl, combine butter, flour, salt, sugar, and baking powder. Cut together with a pastry blender until the butter is in small crumbs.

Chicken Cacciatore

ChickenCacciatore-7

Here’s another favorite dish that many of my friends request I cook when I have them over for dinner. One of my favorite things about it is how healthy it is, while also being fancy enough to serve to company. Eat healthy, impress guests, and relax with a glass of wine (or three) for an hour and a half in the middle of cooking. What could be better?

Start by rinsing the chicken and seasoning it with salt and pepper. Then heat some oil in a large dutch oven and brown the chicken.

Remove the chicken from the pot and add in the diced onions and bell peppers. Cook until they just start to soften, then add in the mushrooms and cook until those are soft too.
