So another big thanks to my two biggest fans of the moment, Jenna & Amber. You guys have been awesome this week, and I will forever be grateful for your support. One day I will publish a cookbook and you will get a proper thank you! ;)
As for the rest of you, if this doesn’t entice you enough to make Chicken Pot Pancakes, or to try something new, I don’t know what to tell you.
Amber’s lovely table setting for one, complete with (not just glass) but bottle, of white wine. :)
Jenna & Nick’s plateful of pancakes. These look dill-licious! (oh yes I did).
So keep up with us if you want to cook along, or check back soon for an update on when we will be cooking next!
Chicken Pot … what?
Yes, I said pancakes. And the first thing I have to tell you is to get the image of buttery, syrupy, sweet, pancakes out of your mind. It’s time to think of pancakes in a different way. Once you can do that, you are left with a doughy, bread-like base. Almost like a biscuit. And when you add some veggies and chicken and cover it with gravy (because what shouldn’t be covered in gravy?) it’s almost like pot pie. And now that I think of it, “pot pie” is in the exact same situation. You have to take out what you originally think of with pie, cherries, apples and cinnamon… It’s like I planned this or something.
What you will need: (just trust me, it’s gonna be good)
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour
2 cups chicken broth
2 teaspoons dill
Salt and pepper
2 cups pancake mix
1 1/4 cups milk, (as needed, according to the pancake mix package directions)
1 egg (as needed, according to the pancake mix package directions)
1 cup store-bought rotisserie chicken
1/2 cup frozen peas, carrots, or mixed vegetables
3 green onions, diced
Melt butter in saucepan. Add flour and cook for 1 minute. Whisk in chicken broth and season with salt, pepper, and dill. Keep on low heat and stir often.
Love me some dill.
Don’t slack on your whisking. If you do, you’ll end up with tiny clumps that will be impossible to get smooth. Also remember that if it’s not quite thick enough, you can always make a little rue (melt a little butter mixed with flour) and whisk it in to thicken the gravy.
Meanwhile, mix pancake mix according to package directions. Stir in chicken, frozen veggies, and green onions. Cook them just like regular pancakes in a skillet over medium heat and serve with gravy!
Nah, DH didn’t like em’ much either. ;)
I hope you have all had a wonderful week so far, and can enjoy creating and savoring your dinner. That’s what it’s all about, right?
