Sweet & Savory ~~ Individual Chicken Pot Pies

What's for dinner?  How about individual chicken pot pies? This is a great recipe for leftover chicken which can be doubled or tripled with the additional pot pies being frozen if you would like to cook them at a later time.  It happens to be one of our family favorites which we've enjoyed for over a decade.  So, here goes:

  • 1 cup diced cooked chicken
  • 1 - 14 oz. can cut green beans or vegetable of your choice or 1 - 10 oz. bag of frozen, cooked vegetable
  • 1 - 10.5 oz. can cream of chicken soup, undiluted
  • A few drops of hot sauce (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp. poultry seasoning
  • 1 cup of Bisquick mix
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese 

  • Place diced chicken, vegetable of your choice, undiluted soup, poultry seasoning and hot sauce inside bowl and mix well.
  • Spray individual baking containers with vegetable or olive oil spray to prevent sticking during cooking.
  • Divide mixture into individual baking containers.
  • Thoroughly blend Bisquick mix, milk, egg and Parmesan cheese using mixer at lower speed for about 2 minutes.  Make sure batter is not lumpy.
  • Spoon Bisquick mixture over the top of the chicken and vegetable mixture inside the baking containers.  Make sure to spread the liquid mixture so that the chicken mixture is thoroughly covered.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for approximately 30 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
  • Rest for 5 minutes after removing from oven, invert onto dinner plates, and enjoy!

  • I have served these pot pies during all four seasons of the year.
  • For summertime dining, you could pair with a nice ear of corn on the cob.
  • A tossed green salad with additional veggies is a nice accompaniment year round as well.

Happy dining & enjoy.

Poetry & Prose ~~ "Abba, My Father"

Abba my Father, thank You for giving me life,
            For making me Your child, filling every need.
Your joy is my strength, and You are my song in the night.
            Come fill me up now with Your love and peace.

Abba my Father, thank You for sending Your Son.
            Jesus paid the price for a debt I could not pay.
Your awesome Love for me is more than enough,
            Showing me Your mercy, giving me Your grace.

Abba my Father, Your Holy Spirit sets my heart on fire.
            Breathe upon me now like a mighty rushing wind.
Being filled with more of You is my heart’s one desire.
            You are my Comforter, Savior, and my closest Friend.
Abba my Father, I will forever praise You,
            I come to You now on bended knee.
I worship You now in Spirit and Truth.
            You are altogether lovely, so beautiful You are to me.
