Tasty Thursday - Dothan Chicken Pie

Hello Everyone! Hope your Thursday is really tasty! Mine, I am afraid, probably won't be as I have to go pick up my parents and take them to a new doctor for a visit. When my dad's last blood tests came back they indicated some kidney problems, so we'll be going to see a kidney specialist today.

BUT! I'm still going to share a tasty recipe with you anyway! This recipe, I call Dothan Chicken Pie because my friend Fay made it for me once when I went to visit her, and on that same trip I found a local cookbook that had several variations of the same pie. Never content to leave well enough alone, I tweaked it a bit (added veggies and a few more seasonings) and now think it's just right! By the way, when I have a recipe I make a lot, I tend to write it in order of the steps involved. This makes it easier for me at the time I'm cooking it. You'll see that in a lot of the recipes I'll be sharing here.

Here's the recipe >>>

Dothan Chicken Pie

~~~Do ahead:

Cook and pull chicken breasts to make 3 cups of meat.

Reserve broth from cooking chicken.

Boil 2-3 eggs to hard boiled stage.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

~~~When you are ready to bake it:

Mix 1 can cream of chicken soup and 2 cups chicken broth. I usually use an immersion blender to make sure it's really mixed well.

In large casserole dish (9 x 13 pyrex works great) layer chicken.

Top with mixed soup and broth.

Season to taste with salt and pepper = this time I used Natures Seasons, Italian herbs and red pepper flakes (and any other seasonings you wish to use).

Drain 1 can of mixed veggies and sprinkle over chicken.

Chop or slice eggs and layer over veggies.

Mix 2 sticks melted margarine, 2 cups milk and 2 cups self rising flour until there are no lumps, and pour over other ingredients.

Bake for 1 hour or until bubbly and golden

This is so very easy, and I've taken it to familes who had just lost a loved one, to my aunt and uncle who were moving, and other occasions, as well as just making it for us to eat, and everyone loves it! Since it's just the two of us, I usually put it in two dollar store (throw away) aluminum cake pans and bake both, then freeze one of them for later.

I hope you try this recipe, and really hope you enjoy it. Let me know how you liked it! Blessings friends! Becky
