I have decided to try and share more recipes that are easy for our busy lives. There is nothing like a quick, easy and tasty home cooked meal.  My craving for comfort food is what prompted me to experiment with this dish. Since this dish got the family seal of  approval. I had to share. So let’s dive into this recipe.

This recipe serves 4

1/2 C Organic Frozen Onions & Peppers

1/2 C  organic Flour

1 1/2 C organic Chicken Stock ( try my DIY Version here)

Seasonings ( Pink Himalayan Salt, Black Pepper, Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, Basil, Thyme)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 425°

Season your chicken on both sides with (salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder)

Place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes or until cooked through. Once done dice into bite size chunks and set aside.

In a pot on medium heat add oil, mixed veggies, peppers and onions and (pinch of salt, 1/4 tsp of black pepper, onion, and garlic powder.) Cook/Stir until just tender.  Now add butter, flour, and chicken broth. Stir to evenly incorporate.  Next add ( pinch of salt, 1/2 tsp of black pepper, basil, thyme, basil & garlic powder.) Stir to evenly distribute. Remove from the heat and add your chicken.  Mix to evenly distribute.

Once your mixture has cooled a bit……about 5 minutes.  It’s time to add it into your ramekins.  Once you have your ramekins filled it’s time to top with your pie crust.

Take a bowl a little larger than your ramekins and use it to cut out four pot pie crust.

* This is optional use a small cookie cutter in the center of your pot pie crust and make a cut-out.

Or simply score the pie crust after you place them on top of your ramekins.

Easy Crock Pot Brunswick Stew

Hello everyone,

image

Welcome to Tasty Tuesday!!!!!!

Today, I want to share another comfort food recipe with you. This recipe takes me back to my childhood.  I loved when my mother made this for our family especially on snowy days.  My brother and I would go outside to play in the snow with friends for hours. When we came back in from the cold snow, my mom would have a nice hearty bowl of stew on the table.  It really hit’s the spot, a true comfort food.

When my mother made this, she made it on top of the stove in a huge pot. She would have to get up a few times in the middle of the night to stir it occasionally. This stew was truly a labor of love and you could tell by how delicious it taste.  My goal with this recipe was to make it as delicious as my mom’s but simplify the process.

So let’s get started……………….

(*This post contains affiliate links, which means I may receive compensation if you make a purchase using the links.)

Ingredients:

5 medium organic potatoes (cut into bite size pieces)

1/2 of an organic whole chicken or 4 skin on bone in chicken thigh or breast

(26 oz.) organic crushed tomato

1 carton of organic low sodium chicken stock

4 C organic frozen mixed vegetables

4 stalks organic celery (sliced about 1/4″ thick) (optional)

1/2 of an organic yellow or white large onion (diced)

Seasonings:

1 tsp of black pepper, salt, oregano, basil, thyme, garlic & onion powder

1 TBS Organic Cane Sugar

Method:

Once you have cut your potatoes, onion and celery it’s time to add your ingredients to the crock pot.

Place your chicken, tomato puree, chicken stock, potatoes, celery onion, mixed veggies and seasoning mixture into crock pot.  Stir to get everything mixed together.  Set on high for 10 hours.

image

Once done enjoy a nice hearty bowl of stew.  Feel free to add a bit more sugar to your individual serving (that’s my preference since childhood).

Easy No Fuss Coconut Rice

Many years ago a friend had me over for dinner. She had a great dinner that included coconut rice. That inspired me to give it a try. The first time I made it, it turned out well……but after that first time….I just couldn’t get the consistency right. So a few days ago I decided to give it another try to compliment a dish I wanted to experiment with. Well it turned out great and I have been able to duplicate the process. The process is super simple that my youngest who is learning to cook, made it all by herself. So now it’s time to share.

Ingredients:

1 1/4 C of Brown Jasmine Rice (or rice of choice)
3/4 C water
1 1/2 C coconut milk
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbs Cane Sugar

Directions:

In a medium pot add rice, water, coconut milk, salt and sugar. Stir to mix together.

Set the stove on high and bring to a boil. Takes about 5 minutes (make sure your top is on the pot).

Once it begins to boil immediately reduce to a simmer for 25 minutes. Once it’s done serve with whatever you like.

Say Goodbye To Store Bought Microwaveable Popcorn’s Chemicals

A few day’s ago I was on my Beloved Pinterest.  I came across a pin on how to make your own Microwaveable Popcorn.  I had to try this ASAP.  My family loves, love, love Popcorn.  Due to the chemicals in Microwaveable Popcorn, my family has not had it in years and the air popper just didn’t taste as good.  So now I can have the best of both worlds.  Quicker and Healthier Microwaveable Popcorn.

Want to know what’s in your store bought popcorn check out this video below which will also show you just how simple it is to make it yourself.  Making it yourself gives you the ability to get creative with the way you flavor it.
