Because my Farmer had to sell 5 loads of pigs the morning of our Freeze-O-Ram I had to join my friends later in the afternoon. He was in charge of the kids for the few hours I'd be gone as I had decided I needed a few hours to myself!
I made Chicken Pot Pie. This is so very simple and freezes well! This recipe will make two pies.
Melt 1/3c butter in a pan. Mmmm...butter
Chop 1 cup of onions, carrots and celery
Saute the mixture in the butter until tender
Add 1/2 c flour and stir until smooth. Then add 2 c. chicken broth and 1 c. evaporated milk
Cook, stirring constantly, until thick and bubble.
Stir in 4 c. cooked chopped chicken, 1 c. thawed frozen peas and salt and pepper to taste
Place one ready made pie crust in a pie plate. Shape to plate. Add filling and cover with top crust.
Pinch edges together. Slit top crusts and bake uncovered for 30 minutes at 350. Then cover with foil and bake another 30 minutes.
The recipe is featured in The Freezer Cooking Manual. I got this cookbook while Freezer Cooking with another group of friends!
And if you are attempting mass freezer cooking with small children, I highly recommend they nap while you cook!
