I'm pregnant and eating everything in sight. And if it's not in sight, then I create it, which is not my natural forte. Earlier this week it was drizzly and dreary in L.A., and all I wanted was chicken pot pie.
But I don't know how to make chicken pot pie. I don't even like chicken pot pie.
First I made a batch of regular old Lipton chicken flavored noodles, and I added in some chicken. Canned white breast chicken, if you're wondering. I also made the noodles with skim milk instead of water.
Then I took two packages of Pillsbury crescent roll dough and instead of dividing them into triangles, I divided them into squares and plopped them in large muffin tins.
I filled the dough with the noodles & chicken mixture and folded the excess dough over it to make a little pocket. Into the oven for 10 minutes and they came out looking pretty.
I ate mine with a fork like a pot pie, but my husband picked his up like a muffin and devoured three.
They were strangely delicious. Next time, I would add a lot more filling to the dough. I was envisioning it running out all gooey and it didn't really do that. The ratio was a little dough-heavy. Also, I would cook it longer. My oven tends to burn things easily, so I can be over careful with it. It was nice that it was a little doughy, but we both would have liked it to be a little crispy on the outside.
The moral of this story? Give in to your pregnancy cravings. No matter how you have to improvise.
