On Sunday I roasted a really big chicken and served it with steamed broccoli, wild rice and rolls. Yesterday I made stock from the chicken carcass and leftover skin. Then, I used some of the leftover meat and the stock to make chicken pot pie, served with sauteed mushrooms, arugula and spinach. I used frozen pie crusts that I bought at the store.
The recipe (which I modified a bit) was nothing special, but because of the homemade stock and the leftover roasted chicken the flavor was just right. Perfect food for the end of a stormy day.
Both of the kids have a cold now so for tonight’s dinner I will use up the rest of the leftover meat and stock to make chicken noodle soup.
