One pot chicken pot pie–without the oven!

I miss my oven, but not having one sure has stretched my imagination and cooking skills.

My latest concoction was a hit, and it’s frugal as well.  To feed a family of four, you’ll need:

  • One box of Stove Top Stuffing-prepared ahead of time.
  • 2 chicken breasts (I actually used chicken tornadoes, because that is what I had on hand, but it would be better with real chicken breasts.
  • 2 potatoes, quartered and sliced
  • 1.5 cups frozen vegies (I used peas, carrots and corn)
  • 1/2 package of poultry gravy mix
  1. Cook potatoes and vegies together until soft, drain and set aside
  2. Cook and dice chicken, set aside
  3. In your medium skillet, melt 2TBSP butter or margarine, and add chicken gravy mix and enough flour to make a roux.
  4. Using a whisk, add milk slowly to roux until consistency of choice.  We like ours thick.  I don’t measure this part, I just cook it until it looks right.  It thickens fast, so keep your whisk busy.
  5. Turn the heat down to a low, add in cooked vegetables and chicken, and top with prepared stuffing.  Cover and simmer for 5-10 minutes, then serve.
