Take 2 – Chicken Pot Pie and Side Salad

Chicken Pot Pie with a Side Salad and Applesauce

If you don’t make it often, and it’s really good, you can serve it twice in a week.  That is the case for this Chicken Pot Pie recipe.  I usually try to reinvent a meal so it looks like a new meal and doesn’t appear to be “leftovers”. But there is no need with Chicken Pot Pie.  In fact, it seems better the second time around.

I warmed the pie and served it with a simple side salad – it doesn’t get any easier than that!  But because it was so easy, I offered choices for the side salad.  My son chose snap peas and hummus and my daughter chose a side salad with her new favorite lemon, mustard vinaigrette dressing  that she tasted in nutrition class at school.

The Verdict

10’s from everyone! …omitting the parsnip.  I recommend leaving it out if you are cooking for kids. I think its bitter after-bite might be too much for their overly sensitive taste buds.

“Food for Thought” – is a meal really “leftover” if you planned to serve it twice?
