Chicken pot pie with sage biscuit topping; broccoli – 25 December 2015


I suggested early on that, since there were enough of us to make this light work, we make this “Chicken Pot Pie with Sage Biscuit Topping” for Christmas dinner with Mom and brother B, and R&E. There is lots of veggie cleaning and chopping, plus cutting fatty bits off four chicken breast halves and four thighs (making discards into stock) and cutting the chicken bite-sized. Then you have to make a white sauce and cook it into the chicken stew, and also make the biscuit dough to lob onto the top. We make 1.5x recipe of the topping, for the wide dish we use at Mom’s for this meal.

Later we opened up the fruitcake that brother B had decorated with a Christmas tree back on 27 November, and R&E dug up a cognac to serve with that. Quite the luxury dessert!
