Magic Chicken Pie
Magic Chicken Pie? Sounds like a great description for a meal that I would want to make. Chicken pot pie, who does not salivate and get a good old fashioned craving when you hear that string of three words uttered?
There are many ways to make a chicken pie, and I bet a lot of old time 'secret recipes' stashed away in some old recipe boxes passed down from generation to generation. Lucky for us this recipe that we are featuring from one of our favorite kitchens 'The Midnight Baker' is not a secret.
This recipe uses ready cooked chicken, so a super way to use up leftovers, your favorite frozen veggies, and a variety of other items that many home cooks have stashed in their pantry just for this sort of recipe. The biscuits are made from a baking mix like Bisquick. As always for those 'from scratch' cooks, you can substitute, but let us find out what convenient to use Bisquick is made of.
Bisquick is, in short, a pre-mixed baking product that is branded by Betty Crocker and produced by General Mills. It is a mixture of flour, shortening, salt, and baking powder. This is a short-cut for home cooks, an item that makes the biscuit process a tiny bit faster in those great recipes you are whipping up in the kitchen.
For those that live overseas and this product is not on your grocery shelves you can make a substitute for Bisquick as follows. For each one cup of Bisquick called for in a recipe, you just substitute with one cup all-purpose flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 2 1/2 tablespoons of melted butter, oil, or Crisco or lard.
