I recently shared an easy recipe for our busy family, today I have another one to share with you, thanks to Pillsbury!
With school in session and Kyle’s late work schedule this month, time is limited in the evening, especially if we have any type of event going on after school. For example, we didn’t get home until after 7pm tonight due to the meet the teacher event at Lennox’s Montessori school. So I had to throw something together for dinner quickly, to get Lennox fed, bathed and off to bed at a somewhat reasonable time! So tonight I made an Easy Grands! Chicken Pot Pie. It isn’t the same as a completely homemade pot pie – but it only took about 20 minutes, so it works on a busy night!
Easy Grands! Chicken Pot Pie
2 Cans Progresso® Rich & Hearty chicken pot pie style soup
1 Bag of your favorite frozen mixed veggies
2 cups cubed chicken (optional)
1 can Pillsbury® Grands!® Flaky Layers refrigerated biscuits
How to make it:
- Preheat oven to 375.
- Warm the soup and the mixed veggies in a saucepan until warm.
- Pour into an ungreased casserole dish
- Place the Pillsbury Grand Flakey Layers biscuits (separated into 2 and cut into quarters) all over the top of the casserole dish.
- Bake in oven at 375 for 16-20 minutes or until the biscuits are light golden brown.
- Remove from oven and serve!
It turned out nicely and Lennox liked it – so that’s a win! While trying to get on a good schedule with school, work and just life – I have found a few tips that help out along the way. If you are happy with this recipe, download the Pillsbury Recipe Booklet for many more easy family meals!
Meal Tips for a Back to School Routine
1. In the mornings, let the kids grab their breakfast and eat while you finish getting ready, throwing the laundry in the washer or eating breakfast yourself. I put together a drawer in the fridge just for Lennox. This has helped the mornings move along quite nicely this week!
2. Do a bento style lunch for the kids, and even yourself. It mixes it up and you won’t get sick of sandwiches! Fruit, veggies, crackers, cheese, even sandwich meat without the bread – it’s a great way to change things up.
3. Figure out what you will be making for dinner ahead of time. If you can figure out Monday – Thursday, you should be able to fill in the rest with leftovers and possibly going out once on the weekend. Then get all your shopping done at one time so you don’t have to keep running up to the grocery store.
