Easy Home Made Chicken Pot Pie

Easy Home Made Chicken Pot Pie - Good food shouldn't have to break the bank

One of my favorite foods is chicken pot pie. There is just something so delicious about eating all the veggies, then the meat potatoes and crust together afterwards. Ok, so maybe I am a bit OCD. The point is, pot pie is delicious. I have had a problem with the cost and ingredients that come with many of the store varieties of pot pie. I decided it was time to make my own. How do you eat your pot pie? Do you have an order or do you just dig in?

What you will need: 

  • Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts - 2 cups cut up and cooked. 
  • Mixed Vegetables - 2 cups. 
  • Salt - 1/2 teaspoon 
  • Pepper - 1 teaspoon
  • Flour - 1/2 cup 
  • Pie Crust - I bought mine. If you make your own, please send me a great recipe. I haven't mastered pie crusts yet. 
  • Potatoes - 1 cup cubed. 
  • Chicken Broth 
What to do:

  • Combine chicken, vegetables, salt, pepper, and potatoes in a pot. 
  • Add enough chicken broth to cover. - I use the broth I save from boiling chicken for other recipes. 
  • Simmer until potatoes are soft.

  • Line your pan with a pie crust while. 
  • Once Chicken mixture is done leave 2 cups of the broth in the pan.
  • Mix in your flour and stir until all flour is dissolved. 
  • Pour this mixture over the meat and vegetables in your pie.

  • Top with a second pie crust. - Make sure to poke it with a fork to let the steam vent as it cooks. 
  • Bake at 350 for 35 minutes or until golden brown. 
This is also a great meal to freeze. You can freeze after cooking. Simply thaw and reheat in the oven at 350 for 35 minutes.

Tips for Dads with Kids at Theme Parks

Tips for Dads with Kids at Theme Parks

Out of the gate I must confess something, I am a big kid.... I am a big kid who is absolutely crazy about his wife and kids. Now I am also a big kid who loves theme parks. I have for as long as I can remember. From playing on Splash Mountain to Spider Man and from Back to the Future(i am still sore they removed this) to Star Tours some of my favorite memory's growing up happened in theme parks. You see this is an important tidbit of  information because like any self respecting father as I got married and had kids I wanted to share these experiences and joys with my family. However, between height restrictions, small legs, the constant need for naps (and no I am not talking about the kids), and the urge to scream as we wait in line for an attraction just to have them decide right before we get on the attraction they have become paralyzed with fear and have to beehive for the nearest exit sign I have learned a thing or to about going to the parks with my children. This ongoing series will feature some of my favorite ones.

Its OK to slow down- This is something my wife almost always gets on to me about. Growing up whenever we went to the parks it was a game to see how long it would take us to take in every attraction. From the time we would hit the opening gate till the time we were on our way back to our room or car it was as if we had one of those guns that go off at races and while we were in the parks it was a mad dash to finish the marathon that almost always left us longing for a vacation from our vacation. Admit it, you've been there too. Its ok we all have. I thought this was normal practice until I was on my honeymoon with my wife at Disney. She drove me crazy initially. She had never been to any of the parks and as it was her first time she wanted to take it easy and take it all in. Though this was very counter culture to me it allowed me to enjoy the parks in a new way. There were many details and experiences I had often passed over in our mad conquest. This lesson provided the frame work for our theme park strategy as we had kids. This is not for everybody but it is often common practice for us. Before we hit the opening gate we will pick the 3-4 things, usually one for each person that they absolutely have to do. From then on we hit those attractions or shows and then take the rest of the day sort of as it comes. This has often help us avoid over exhaustion and minimized that whole "vacation from the vacation mentality"
