Chicken Pot Pies

This recipe is built off of The Kitchn's review on The Pioneer Woman's recipe. We doubled the recipe and used most of two rotisserie chickens.

  • Pie crusts (we like bottom crusts as well as on top)
  • 4 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1 cup EACH Finely Diced Onion, Carrot, Celery (mirepoix)
  • 2 rotisserie chickens, Shredded
  • 1/2 cup Flour
  • 3+ cups Chicken Broth, Plus More If Needed
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • Chopped Fresh Thyme To Taste
  • 1 cup Cream

Fattoush Salad

The fattoush salad has always been one of my favorite salads. It is a lettuce-less salad and has bread in it -- what's not to like! But fattoush salads are the kind of dish where everyone's grandmother makes it differently. This recipe is the closest I've found to my ideal fattoush salad.

Ingredients

1 whole wheat pita bread
[roughly equal parts cucumber, tomato, red pepper + half-part onion]
1 large English cucumber OR 2 small Persian cucumbers, diced
