1 egg beaten
Yes I am using "convenience" foods (frozen potatoes, packaged gravy, cream of soup). It would be much healthier and less expensive from scratch but this is a way to make a tasty meal when time is limited. This recipe is definitely not for the calorie conscious!
For the filling:
2/3 cup frozen mixed vegetables
2/3 cup frozen diced potatoes
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 package chicken gravy mix
1 cup milk*
*I use powdered milk and water (1 cup water + 3 heaping tablespoons of powdered milk, mixed well)
1/2 of the rotisserie chicken meat (light and dark) rough chopped which was close to 2 cups.
Pepper, poultry seasoning and parsley to taste (in our case it is 1/8, 1/4 and 1/2 teaspoons each)
Mix all ingredients and pour into a lightly greased 8x8 foil pain. Preheat oven to 350°F.
Pour batter over the top of chicken and vegetable mixture. Bake for at 350°F (on lower rack) for 35-40 minutes. Crust will be golden brown and filling bubbling.
It looks (and tastes) like the from scratch version. Yummy!
The other half of the rotisserie chicken was shredded to make chicken salad (sorry no photos). But I will be making it again soon!
2 cups shredded chicken
1/4 cup minced celery
2 tablespoons minced scallions (white bunching onions)
1/2 cup sliced red grapes
1/4 c chopped apple (tart)
1/4 c. fat free sour cream
3 tablespoons of light mayonnaise
1 teaspoon of dijon mustard
squirt of lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon parsley
salt and pepper to to taste
(Throw in some walnuts or pecans and it becomes a fancy Chicken Waldorf Salad)
Combine all ingredients until well mixed. This is great on lettuce, in a wrap or on bread. Or maybe just a couple (dozen) spoonfuls on it's own. Not that I would do that...heheh
