Today's recipe comes! It's my birthday, so I'm putting my own stuff in today. Mwahahahahaha, I have the power. :-)

Tastes Like Chicken…Pot Pie

* 1 rotisserie chicken
* 1 cup sliced frozen carrots
* 3/4 cup frozen green peas
* 1/3 cup butter
* 1/3 cup chopped onion
* 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
* 1/4 teaspoon celery seed
* dash thyme
* 1 3/4 cups chicken broth
* 2/3 cup milk

* 2 (9 inch) unbaked pie crusts
* egg white

—Preheat oven to 425

—Pick all the chicken off (at least) half of the rotisserie chicken, shred it by hand. (Take the rest of the meat off and use for another recipe). Place one crust in pie plate, form to plate, and bake for 5 minutes. Take out of oven when done and let cool.

—Pour chicken broth in small pot w/lid. Boil carrots, covered, in broth for appx 10 minutes. Put peas in pot in last 4 minutes. Drain and keep broth! Set veggies aside.

—Cook onion in butter and all spices until onion is translucent. Add flour and mix. Slowly stir in broth and milk. Simmer and stir over med-low heat until thickened and smooth.

—Retrieve pre-baked crust. Layer chicken on bottom, then veggies on top. Pour sauce over top. Add top crust. Be sure to cut a few slits on top to let steam out. Brush thin layer of egg white over top crust.

—Cook for 35 minutes and let stand for 15 minutes before serving.
This really is excellent, if I do say so myself. You should try it!

Bonus recipe:
Upside-Down Cake

* 3 tablespoons butter, melted
* 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
* 1/4 cup shortening
* 1/4 cup butter
* 1 cup white sugar
* 1 egg
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
* 2 teaspoons baking powder
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1 cup milk
* fruit—2 peeled & sliced apples; can crushed pineapple, sliced peaches, etc
(whatever you want)

—Heat oven to 350 degrees.

—Pour melted butter into the bottom of an 8 inch square baking dish. Tilt the
dish so that it is evenly coated. Sprinkle the brown sugar over the butter. Arrange the fruit to cover the brown sugar, set aside.

—In a medium bowl, cream together the shortening, butter, and white sugar. Beat in the egg and vanilla until light and fluffy. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt, stir into the creamed mixture alternately with the milk. Pour into the baking dish so that the fruit is completely covered.

—Bake for 40 to 50 minutes in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted, comes out clean. Immediately invert onto a serving plate.
I actually make this with bananas. The key is to have ripe bananas, as one would for banana bread. I slice the bananas fairly thin and layer them on the brown sugar. "Banana Cake" is a family favorite breakfast treat!
