Kind of a Chicken Pot Pie with Parmesan Mashed Potatoes

IMG_7122

It’s sort of like a chicken pot pie, but with Parmesan mashed potatoes. Mmmmmmm….

1 lb Chicken (I get our chicken from Doorganics, and the tenderloins are WAY cheaper)

1 tbl Olive Oil

Salt & Pepper to taste

4 large Carrots

2 cups Chopped Green Beans

1 tbl Minced Garlic

1/2 tsp Thyme

1/2 tsp Rosemary

4-5 shakes Coriander

3 tbl Butter

1/4 cup Flour (I use whole wheat flour)

2 cups Chicken Broth

3/4 cup Milk (I use whole, but you could use cream)

Potatoes:

1/2 lb Potatoes (I used small red potatoes)

1 tbl Butter

2 tsp Montreal Steak Seasoning

1/4 cup Milk

3 tbl Parmesan Cheese

I LOVE cast iron skillets, If you don’t have on I suppose you’ll live, but you should go check out TJMaxx they have them all the time and they are amazing and worth it. Just saying.

Salt and pepper both sides of the chicken. Heat olive oil over medium heat and brown the chicken. While it browns start the water for the potatoes.

Add carrots to the chicken pan and continue to cook.

Once the chicken has cooked through, about 8 minutes, remove from the pan and chop into bite sized pieces, then add back to the pan.

To the carrots and chicken add, green beans, minced garlic, thyme, rosemary, and coriander.

Add 3 tablespoons butter to the chicken pan and melt.

once it has melted add flour, this is how we are going to create the gravy sauce.

The flour will coat everything in the pan. Allow the flour to cook for a few minutes to absorb all the flavors. Then add chicken broth.

Increase the heat to medium high and allow the broth to simmer until it thickens. If it looks really thick its okay, we’re going to add milk to the sauce too. 5-7 minutes simmering should be perfect. Add the milk and simmer 3-4 minutes more.

While the sauce thickens, drain the water from the potatoes and then add all the ingredients into the potato pot.

I like my potatoes skin on and kind of lumpy, but you can mash them to your preference. The Montreal Steak seasoning is my husbands secret ingredient, and it sounds kind of crazy, but its delicious.

Now that your potatoes are done the chicken pot pie part should look like this:
