I made a delicious meal with Campbell’s® Sauces as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. #CampbellsSauces
What is the first thing you think of when you hear “Chicken Pot Pie”? For me, the thought of a cozy comforting dish comes to mind. Who doesn’t love chicken, potatoes and crisp veggies bathed in a creamy sauce simmering away under a flaky crust, right?
Growing up, chicken pot pie was a family favorite as there was always a stash of pre-made individual pot pies in the freezer. Now that I am older, I would love to serve pot pies more but you know my issues with pie crust – pie crust and I are on barely speaking terms. Eventually we’ll reconcile but to make it from scratch and on a busy weeknight, to quote that classic song, “Ain’t No Way.”
One of my pantry staples are Campbell’s® Sauces and their Chicken Pot Pie Oven Sauce allows me to get home from the 9to9, assemble some ingredients, grab either some puff pastry or pre-made pie crust from the fridge and, in about 50 minutes or so, I have a hot and bubbly pot pie ready for dinner. If I want to customize it, their Oven Sauces give me the freedom to add a bit of spice or change the flavor profile depending on my mood.
I love the classic Chicken Pot Pie with carrots, peas, and potatoes in that rich peppery cream sauce. However, on days when I want a bit of zing, I love a Southwestern spin with these Mini Southwestern Chicken Pot Pies. You can make a 9×13 dish and layer a sheet of puff pastry over it if you want to serve it family style or, you can do what I did and break out those little mini pie dishes – you know the ones that are sitting in your cabinet that you couldn’t resist buying – and make these individual lovelies.
I spiced mine up using a freezer staple, puff pastry, because when it comes to pie crust, there is nothing flakier that a bit of puff, right? To add another layer of flavor, I browned the chicken thighs for a bit of additional zing with some of my favorite adobo seasoning along with a quick sauté of the onions and peppers. In no time, I had this luscious creamy chicken pot pie mixture ready for the oven. The smells from my kitchen had the Junior Sous Pug begging for a taste. It almost broke my heart to tell him I could not sneak him a bite. Key word is almost because sharing was not an option once I tasted these. These pot pies were the hit of dinner and will be in steady rotation in my house.
So – when the call for comfort strikes, indulge. Whip out this Campbell’s® Oven Sauce and make a Chicken Pot Pie – your family and friends will absolutely adore it!
