Chicken Pot Pie, yum

Don't know what to do with your leftover chicken? Lucky for you and your belly, my mum made some most delicious homemade chicken pot pie and is delighted to share her recipe. It's pretty quick and easy. Also this would be a great dish to make with turkey in a couple months.

- Bisquik gluten free mix (Use the recipe for the biscuit)
- a large chicken breast
- 3 large carrots, chopped
- 1 stalk of celery
- can of corn
- can of green beans
- half of a large onion
- 3 potatoes, chopped in cubes

Cook everything in a pot until the vegetables are done. Once finished, make the biscuit mix, use about 3/4-1/2 the mix & line the casserole dish with the mix. Bake at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes. Tip: check about half way to be sure the biscuit didn't fall, if it does, use a spoon to put it back to keep it lined around the side of the dish. Next add the chicken and vegetables and top with the rest of the biscuit mix. The mix will be gooey so it will be easier if you use your fingers to spread it on top. Bake until the top is golden brown, remove and eat!! Enjoy.

Note: if you have chicken juice, add it to the mix. The biscuit flour soak up all the liquids and this might help keep it from being dry.
