Honestly, I’m not one for potpies, but my dh loves them.

Thanks to some bad luck (the epidural, the steroid shot and the fun of my spider bite experience), dh went to Costco and bought 2 rotisserie chickens.  One for our date night with our older grandsons, the other for a couple of days afterwards so I could take it easy.

Worked well-but as expected dh got tired of the chicken by Friday.  So I decided I was well enough to do the 3 R’s to the remaining hen.

I simply chopped up:  a couple of stalks of celery, same of carrots, 8 oz spud and 1/2 an onion.  Steamed them about 1/2 way through in the microwave.

I diced up the chicken breasts and stirred it into the veggies along with 1/2 C frozen peas.  We love green chilies so I added 1/2 small can.

Next came the “sauce“.   I used a can of low sodium chicken broth, 1 tsp. minced garlic, 2 tbsps. worchestshire sauce and heated it until boiling.  I stirred together 2 tbsp. each cornstarch and water and whisked it into the liquid and thickened it up.  Stirred it into the veggies and chicken.  

Put the entire thing into a 2-1/2 quart corningware.  

Heated the oven to 425.  Used some heart-healthy bisquick for drop biscuits and added 1 tbsp. of the green chilies I had left from the can and 1/2 C non-dairy mozzarella.

plopped it on top and baked it for about 12 minutes.

Thankfully-even some left for dh’s lunch tomorrow!  Of course, you could do this with beef broth and beef chunks that you’ve browned off as well.  Even a sausage version would be nice.  

Get creative!
