Today, on our continuation of “Cook Once – Eat All Week”, we will use the au jus acquired from roasting the chickens two days ago. If you have been using store-bought rotisserie chicken, no problem, it’ll work with trumped up chicken broth. The filling won’t be quite as rich as when using the au jus, but tasty, all the same. There are also some choices when it comes to the vegetables for today’s chicken pot pie. You can use the standard peas and carrots or a delicious medley called “organic foursome” I found at Trader Joe’s which also includes corn and green beans. Finally there are options for the topping. Ready-made raw pie crust or puff pastry. I used puff pastry and nearly burnt it while trying to achieve a browner color under the broiler… so be careful with that!
