#TMCKitchenSeries: Ham and Chicken Pot Pie

Have you checked “The Momma Cooks” category? If I’m not sharing my baking recipes, I always cook anything that involves chicken. Why?

Because it’s my husband’s favorite and there are so many things I can do with it. Since I have leftover chicken on the ref (I’m planning to make chicken sandwich for merienda, actually) plus ham has been sitting in the freezer for quite sometime, I decided to combine both and make chicken and ham pot pie.

Wait, this is not your ordinary pie. I haven’t mastered my dough-making skills yet so instead, I used mashed potato. It’s not that bad after all.

Anyway, sharing with you this simple but yummy recipe.

Ham and Chicken Pot Pie ham and Chicken Pot Pie 6Ingredients:

Chicken and ham (both cubed), butter, minced garlic, chopped onion, carrots (cubed), sliced mushrooms, cream of mushroom soup, evaporated milk, water, basil leaves, cheese, salt and pepper to taste, potatoes.

How to do it:

1) Mash the potatoes. Add in butter, milk, pepper and basil according to your taste. You can opt for store-bought, ready-to-cook mashed potatoes but I still prefer making my own. ham and Chicken Pot Pie 12) Once the mashed potatoes are ready, melt butter in a heated pan. Add the garlic and onion and saute them lightly. ham and Chicken Pot Pie 23) Add in chicken, ham and carrots. Stir until carrots are cooked.Β  ham and Chicken Pot Pie 34) Add mushroom, cream of mushroom soup, milk and water. Stir and let it simmer for 10 minutes. Season it with salt and pepper. ham and Chicken Pot Pie 45) Once ready, transfer the chicken and ham mixture in a baking dish. Add some cheese before topping it with mashed potatoes and more cheese. ham and Chicken Pot Pie 56) Bake for 10 minutes or until the cheese has melted.

If you noticed, I didn’t indicate any measurements for the ingredients. I just cook looking at the ingredients and adjust the taste accordingly.

What do you think? Easy, right? You can try it with beef and pork too!

    Great idea for left overs. I remember my grandma how she cooks croquettas de patatas- potatoes do wonder for many dishes. Thanks for sharing.

    Like you, I don’t measure my ingredients and I cook according to my taste. I haven’t tried making my own dough.

      I tried making dough for the Chicken Pastel but it wasn’t that successful. So for this recipe, I just used mashed potato nalang. Bagay naman πŸ™‚
