Comfort food times two! All the flavour of chicken pot pie that you love. And pasta! Who doesn't love pasta?
2 cups cooked and cubed chicken, about 1/2 lb
1 1/2 cups diced onion
1 cup diced or sliced carrots
3 minced garlic cloves
2 tbsps olive oil
1/3 cup flour
3 cups milk
4 cups chicken broth or Lowneys's chicken bouillon from powder
1 tsp celery seed
1 lb rigatoni
Salt and pepper to taste
Fresh parsley and lemon thyme
In a large saucepan sauté onions and carrot in olive oil until tender. Add garlic and cook just until lightly golden then stir in the chicken.
Make a well in the center, add the flour and celery seed, then quickly whisk in the broth and milk.
Now stir it all together. Bring to boil and add the rigatoni.
Simmer 15 minutes or as your rigatoni is directed.
Add salt and pepper to taste. If you used a dehydrated bouillon powder you won't need more salt.
Top with fresh parsley and lemon thyme.
I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!
