Inside Out Chicken Pot Pies

1 sheet thawed puff pastry

1 can cream of chicken soup

1 Cup milk (I used skim and it was fine)

1 can chunk chicken, drained (from Costco)

1 can drained mixed vegetables

¼ teaspoon cajun seasoning (I use Emerils)

Pinch of salt and pepper

Pinch of garlic salt

Rosemary Sprigs for garnish, if desired

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Carefully unfold pastry onto a lightly floured counter. Cut into 9 equal size squares and place onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for about 15 minutes or until golden brown. Set aside.

2. While pastry is baking, whisk together the soup and milk in a large bowl then transfer to a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken, vegetables and seasonings. Break up chicken pieces with back of fork. Cook and stir until heated through, about 5 minutes.

3. Place puff pastry squares on serving plates and spoon chicken gravy over top. Garnish with sprigs of rosemary if desired.

    I have lots of favourite meals that are quick and easy to prepare! If I had to choose one however, I think it would definitely be the ‘breakfast-for-dinner’ theme! Making homemade pancakes that are simple and quick, as well as frying up a couple of eggs along with a bowl of fruit on the side!

  2. Congrats, that’s exciting! If I’m in a rush, I just make pasta and throw in a heap of frozen veggies. Not exciting, but the ingredients are always on hand.

  3. In our home I feel like dinner is always rushed during the week. Our top go to meals are hamburgers on the grill and Brinner (aka breakfast for dinner).

  4. Catie

    Something Mexican! Quesadillas, nachos, tacos – all depending on what we have on hand. It’s always delicious, though.

  5. My favorite quick and easy meal is to saute up mixed veggies using non stick spray, chicken broth and seasonings. Then add cooked whole wheat rotini, sliced grilled chicken and 2% cheese with a sprinkle of Reduced Fat Parmesan Cheese on top…cheesy, delish goodness and healthy!

  6. Jey

    Quick and easy: Kimchi noodle salad. Chop up some kimchi, cook some noodles that take less than 5 minutes, add any chopped veggies in the fridge, some ice cubes, and dinner is served! πŸ™‚

  7. Georgianna

    I usually, when I have the time, make homemade gnocchi and freeze it. Then when I need it I boil it up with some frozen vegetables- YUM!

  8. Shanna

    My favorite quick meal is open-faced English Muffin sandwiches with pesto mayo, ham, cheese and tomatoes. I also love pot pie!

  9. julie

    Fried rice, make sure I cook rice in my rice cooker before work. Then when I come home I dump pre chopped onions or frozen veg pack them mix in egg and soy sauce, some lunch meat or spam or any left over meat on hand.

  10. Stephanie

    My quick and easy meal is spaghetti! My father-in-law cans spaghetti sauce in medium size jars, so it’s the perfect amount for my husband and me. All I have to do is cook the noodles!

  11. This chicken pot pie looks wonderful! One of my favorite quick & easy meals to prepare are club sandwiches…love the layers of turkey, bacon and lettuce.

  12. Susan S

    Ooo, a good one is tuna croquettes. Couple cans tuna, some green onion, bit of mustard, s & p, breadcrumbs and a beaten egg to bind. Shape into patties, press into some more breadcrumbs, and pan fry. Serve on a big salad with a glass of wine. Yum!

  13. Tricia Folsom

    I love quick crock-pot meals. One of my favorites is stew meat, one can of cream of mush soup and one can of french onion soup. That is it! We eat it over egg noodles with some sour cream and it is so yummy. My picky kids love it!

  14. My favorite quick and easy (and the one I will always come back to) TACOS! I love tacos… Mr. Ortega, please marry me. Now that I have that confession out of the bag on public display, I will sleep easy tonight.

  15. Heather Hampton

    Tacos made with a mixture of black beans, diced tomatoes, onion, cilantro, and uncle ben’s ready-rice. Scoop up the filling into a flour tortilla (or big fritos!) and enjoy!

    Yum! What size can of chicken is used? Our favorite quick meal is shepherd’s pie using the already made mashed potatoes from the refrigerator section.

  20. Kimmy

    Walking tacos!
    We serve them in our area in IOWA at most school events, ball games..etc. They are a small serving size bag of Dortitos – just cut off the top of bag and crush chips, & leave in w taco seasoned meat, cheese, lettuce, sour cream & salsa!
    Delicious! Easy!
