Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 190 C. Line a baking sheet with foil.
  2. Place the chicken breasts on the baking sheet and rub them with olive oil on both sides, then position them skin side up. Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Roast for 35 to 40 minutes, or until cooked through. Set aside until cool enough to handle, then remove the skin. Cut the chicken into large cubes. You will have 4 to 6 cups of cubed chicken.
  3. In a large pot melt the butter and saute the onions over medium low heat for 10 to 15 minutes, until translucent. Add the flour and cook over low heat, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes. Add the chicken stock. Simmer over low heat for 1 more minute, stirring, until thickened. Add 2 teaspoons salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, and the milk.

Fried rice was started as a way to use up cooked rice and leftovers, so the possibilities are endless with vegetables and meats. The only requirement is that vegetables are diced and meats cut into bite size pieces. This sounds like a a good recipe to start with and make it your own.

  2. Heat sesame oil in a large skillet on medium heat. Add onion, garlic, peas, and carrots. Stir fry until tender. Crack eggs one at a time into a bowl, adding each one after being cracked, to the pan and scramble, mixing throughout vegetables.
  3. Add rice, meat of your choice and soy sauce to the pan. Stir to combine all ingredients and remove from heat. Serve as a main dish or a side dish.

Since I was a little kid, pot pies were regular items at dinner time, they were cheap, mass produced, and available in every store. So to get away from the mass produce pot pies, I have several pot pies listed, one is even cooked in a slow cooker. This is another variant of a baked pot pie, with no pie crust needed. This one states chicken but turkey would be really good too, think leftovers for the meat. I look forward to testing this out for sure. Links to the shortcuts are listed in the Recipe Notes section.

  1. Preheat your oven to 180 C and get out a 9 in pie dish, glass would be perfect, and lightly butter that.
  2. Heat a non stick pan with the 1 tablespoon of butter and cook the onion for 5 minutes over medium heat, then add in frozen peas and carrots, chicken, soup, chicken broth, Lawry's seasoned salt, and the black pepper. Mix well then pour into your prepared pie pan. Stir together the Bisquick mix and milk and pour over the casserole. Drizzle the melted butter over the top and bake for 30-35 minutes. Serve.
Recipe Notes

If you use leftover chicken or turkey, and make the shortcuts, this is truly a low cost dish to prepare. Using chicken breasts bought specifically for this go with 3-4 breasts or go with thighs, or a little of each for both dark and white meat in the pie. One kilo of breasts is about 60 Baht, I will use that figure. Everything else is minimal or on hand. For 6 servings, this is about 30 cents per serving.

Shortcuts: Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup, Lawry's Seasoned Salt, Bisquick Mix.

  1. Season the chicken with salt and pepper on both sides and place in the slow cooker, top with the diced onion, then pour in the contents of the soup over the top, then top that with the diced potatoes, salt and pepper the potatoes to your liking as well. Cover and cook on Low setting for 6 hours. Then use 2 forks and shred the chicken, it will be tender, will take just a minute or two.
  2. Add the peas and carrots, and the heavy cream (or evaporated milk) and stir to mix. Cover and cook for an additional 20-30 minutes. While this is cooking, make your biscuits.
  3. When the biscuits are ready, split each in half and place on a deep plate or large bowl and ladle on the pot pie mix from the slow cooker.
Recipe Notes

Chicken breasts cost 60 Baht/kilo, skin on but boneless, takes all of 3 seconds to remove the skin and trim any fat. Four breast may be about 700 grams, go with that, more chicken, no one is going to complain. For 4 servings, 60 Baht for the chicken, 100 Baht for the 2 cans of soup, this comes to about $1.18 per serving, if you make the soup yourself, you can reduce the soup price to about 45 Baht for both cans.
