First off, YAY us! If you saw our last post, you know that we passed our final inspection for the house and on the first try no less! To celebrate, Izzy decided we needed enjoy the very crisp but sunny afternoon at the dog park. We (the humans) had a bottle of Sparkling Rose to enjoy with an Asian chicken stir-fry until I realized we didn’t have any rice. Luckily, we had just about everything for Chicken Dutch Oven Pie
Chicken Dutch Oven Pie? Yes, dutch oven pie. We love Chicken Pot Pie but when I make it, I like to make it in the dutch oven. I feel like so many recipes require 2 or more pieces of cookware so when I have the opportunity to use one pot, I do it.
In this particular instance, I used our Le Crueset Dutch Oven. I LOVE this pot. It’s the 5.5 quart model. I like that I can start a meal like this on the stovetop and finish it in the oven. One pot, one great dish.
I took this classic recipe from Cooking Light and modified it beyond using a dutch oven. I axed the potatoes and replaced it with the zucchini. I keep the peas, carrots and chicken but replaced the chopped yellow onions with pearl onions.
I rolled out the dough (which turned out the be AMAZING) placed it on the filling mixture and popped it into the oven (still in the same dutch oven).
I peaked in the oven and saw this :
I bowled (instead of plated) dinner and we enjoyed the perfect celebratory dutch oven pie. It was really that good.
After dinner, this was what we saw:
A little soak and 15 seconds of elbow grease and it was spotless. I would have put it in the dishwasher but it was full.
I LOVE all our Le Crueset cookware. I started buying Le Crueset long before we even started talking about getting married. It was one of the best single-girl purchases I made.
Momager knows I love my Le Crueset cookware and asked me to suggest one piece for my sister as a birthday/Christmas gift. I can’t decide between the dutch oven or the braiser. I also love my braiser.
I’m thinking the dutch oven though. There’s so much you can do with it – so versatile. Since this is a combo gift, Momager’s gift budget is pretty generous, so I think maybe the Le Crueset cookware set from Cooking.com would be great.
This was actually my first Le Crueset purchase too. I think my sister is going to love the set. She loves to make cornbread and it’s going to taste SO much better from a seasoned cast iron skillet.
Momager mentioned that a Santa was getting me a Le Crueset bakeware set for Christmas. I didn’t realize Santa shopped at Cooking.com like Momager.
