Easy Leftover Dinner

Even with a busy schedule, it's possible to have a delicious dinner!  Things at Casa Pink and Green have been very busy lately.  Natalia is in a high school theater production and has practice almost every night with some Saturdays thrown in the mix, too.  Both girls are continuing with their other activities, so it gets a little hectic. 

We've been trying to eat healthy meals and avoid fast food.  I've given up my Diet Coke habit for Lent and am managing it much better than I thought I would.

If you have a busy schedule like us, you might appreciate this delicious and easy recipe for a quick dinner using leftovers.  Last night, we enjoyed a delicious interpretation of Chicken Pot Pie

We had baked chicken and baked potatoes on Sunday night.  Using a little bit of leftover chicken cut into cubes and a baked potato, we only needed a few extra ingredients. 

Cubed leftover chicken
Baked potato cut into squares
Any mixed vegetables you have on hand
A bit of chicken broth
Pillsbury Grands Biscuits

1.  Mix the first 4 ingredients in a bowl.  Add chicken broth to add a little bit of moisture to the mix.  You don't want it to be watery. 
2.  Press the biscuits out to a 5 inch diameter. 
3.  Spray a muffin or cupcake pan lightly with non-stick spray. 
4.  Place biscuits in the muffin pan and scoop in a few teaspoons of the chicken mixture. 
5.  Bake in a preheated oven at 375 degrees for about 20-22 minutes. 


Delicious little pies pop right out of the pan.
