Time to use the rest of the turkey...and if was great for the first and second times...but this is the last for a while.

Chicken Pot Pie!!

My leftover roast chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy were in the freezer for a couple of weeks.  Too many other things going on including family guests visiting on their way to Florida for the winter.  We had a wonderful trip down memory lane and sharing tales about family members we had not heard from in some time.

I removed the chicken from the freezer to thaw.  The chicken was placed on top of the leftover mashed potatoes and gravy.  The gravy really is my casserole binder.    To this bowl, I add the chopped vegetables of your choice.   Any savory vegetables are nice but use the vegetables your family enjoys.  Combine completely and smooth into your baking dish that has been sprayed with Pam. 

Use your kitchen shears to get chicken into small bites. 
My additional vegetables include sliced mushrooms, chopped carrots, celery and onions

My mainstay item in the freezer all the time is Pepperidge Farms Puff Pastry.  Let it thaw for thirty minutes on the countertop before rolling out. 

Save the excess dough for cut outs and decorations. 

Lid top makes your pattern to fit. 

Ease into casserole dish. 
Preheat your oven to 425F.  

I used the excess dough to make cut outs and then brushed with egg wash. 

Ready to enjoy

Chicken BBQ Pizza!

The first time I went to California Pizza Kitchen, they featured a BBQ chicken pizza.  That grabbed my interest since I do love pizza and being an ole southern BBQ lover, it was meant for me.  Their pizza was so good and I had to be able to make my own at home.  

First, I roasted a chicken breast @ 350F. for 40 minutes.   Let cool, remove skin and bones.  

 Next...on to the dough and I use the recipe from Fine Cooking 
You can follow the highlighted link above. 

I don't have a "pizza peel" so I turn a large baking sheet over and place my rolled out dough on parchment and place on the bottom side of the sheet pan.  It will slide very easy on to my pizza stone.   My pizza stone is a discontinued 12 x 12"  ceramic tile I bought for about a buck at the flooring store.    Preheat your stone to 500F for at least 30 minutes.  Sounds like a long time...but the stone MUST be very hot for a quick rise on the dough.  

On goes the BBQ sauce....I love KC Masterpiece

Chicken and caramelized onions added....

And topped with Mozzerella & Swiss Cheese!

 Into the oven for 10 to 12 minutes and watch don't want to burn your masterpiece.  

Dig in and enjoy a wonderful flavor treat!

Bon Appétit and Enjoy
