Do you love Chicken Pot Pie? I sure do.
But sometimes I don’t feel like doing the whole – make the filling, make the crust, wait for it to bake - thing.
So I came up with this super cheater recipe – it gives me the taste of Chicken Pot Pie with hardly any of the work.
Yeah. I’m all for instant gratification.
We call it Chicken Pot Not-Pie – because it’s the filling from a Chicken Pot Pie cooked in a slow cooker and served over rice – with super yummy cheater Parker House rolls.
Wow. We’re cheatin’ all over the place here.
But I promise you’ll love it!
1 can Cream of Chicken Soup
1 can Cream of Mushroom Soup
2 14 oz(ish) bags of mixed vegetables (any combination of carrots, peas, green beans, and/or corn you like)
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 cans Heavy Cream (fill up the soup cans after you’ve poured the soup in with heavy cream)
1- 1 1/2 lbs uncooked chicken tenders, chopped
Salt and pepper to taste
3 cups cooked rice
1 can Jumbo Buttermilk Biscuits
1/4 cup melted butter
2 teaspoons grated Parmesan
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
Place all ingredients in a slow cooker. Mix well.
Ignore in slow cooker on high for 5-6 hours or on low for up to 8 hours.
(if your slow cooker low is really “high” then shorten this time a bit.)
When you’re just about ready to eat, prepare your rolls.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Open the can of biscuits and tear each biscuit into 3 pieces. Place 3 pieces into each cup of a 12 cup muffin tin. (This makes 8 rolls)
Mix together melted butter, Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and salt.
Brush butter mixture over the rolls, making sure to get it around all the little pieces.
Bake your rolls for 12 – 15 minutes until golden and cooked through.
If you have any remaining butter mixture, brush it over the top of the hot rolls.
Dish up yumminess by putting rice in bowls, then spooning over it the hot Chicken Pot Not-Pie.
Serve with the Cheater Parker House Rolls. They pull apart easily and are so yummy!
Eat way too many rolls than are good for you. (optional but pretty standard around here) :)
I just love easy, delicious meals! Let me know if you give it a try!
