Country Pot Pie and a Giveaway!

 
I can't resist a good giveaway and couldn't resist actually making something new for a change..we've discussed my rut lately... and the New Progresso Recipe Starters...great thing to get me back into the kitchen and get cooking again!
I know I've said it before over a dry piece of chicken or a bland roast..I wish I had some sort of sauce to go with it, to make this better..but sauces can be a hassle. These sauces are anything but! Super quick and super tasty!
 
Check out this Pot Pie? Ok..so technically it isn't in pie shape, nor did I use pie crust..but for all intents and purposes..it's pot pie! Also, I'm kind of a pot pie snob...I grew up having to eat the freezer section ones and I get kind of sad when I hear about people who still eat them by choice. But then again, I still eat ramen noodles...moving on to the recipe!


Nice and creamy (thanks to the Recipe Starters Creamy Roasted Garlic)..it was a really, really good dinner! It tastes basically just like you remember chicken pot pie. Nice chunks of chicken, tender sweet veggies, and a great creamy sauce. With my addition of salty, sweet, ham, a cresent roll crust, and about 30 minutes from stove to table..it might be a recipe you repeat often!

Country Pot Pie (adapted from the pot pie recipe on the label from Progresso!)

1 roll of cresent rolls
1 cup rotisserie chicken, chopped
10 thin slices of honey ham, finely chopped
1 16oz bag of country style vegetables (corn, carrots, and green beans)
1/2 medium onion, chopped
1 can of Progresso Recipe Starters Creamy Garlic
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp salt

Oven on 375
9x13 pan ready to baking

In a medium saucepan combine the contents of the Progresso can and 1/4 cup flour, salt, and whisk to combine. Bring to a boil and add the bag of vegetables, chopped onion, chicken, and ham. Mix.
Pour the mixture into your baking dish.
Open your can of cresent rolls (recover from partial heart attack when it pops open and scares you)-don't separate the rolls, I was lucky and mine stayed in a nice rectangle-
Top the chicken mixture with the cresent roll dough
Bake approximately 20 minutes or until your cresent roll top is nice and golden brown.
Remove and let cool for a few minutes before you dig in!

Don't be sad if you haven't seen Progresso Recipe Starters in your grocery yet, because right now..I'm going to give you a chance to win a prize pack!

You'll get everything in the above picture! Two cans of the new product, some new measuring cups, a can scraper/spatula, a small baking dish, a little recipe booklet, and a $10 gift card to purchase whatever other groceries you might need for your new recipe!

I mentioned that I used the Creamy Garlic sauce in my Pot Pie, I also received the Creamy Basil Parmesan..it will make it's debut in some stuffed italian shells tomorrow night! There also have 3 other flavors of Recipe Starters-Fire Roasted Tomato, Creamy Portabello Mushroom, and Creamy Three Cheese. All of them sound great to me!

Homemade has my heart but some of that is because I (and only I, out of my family) am a vegetarian and it's hard to find really good veggie pot pies! (Also because my mum's crust is the best!)
