If you are fighting a cold, it’s better to make your own chicken soup.

Recipe by Rachael Ray

1. In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the orzo and cook, stirring often, until deep golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes.

2. In a large Dutch oven or soup pot with a lid, heat the oil, three turns of the pan, over medium-high. Add the onion, leek, celery, carrot, thyme, garlic, bay leaf, and lemon zest. Season with salt and pepper and cover the pot. Cook the vegetables, stirring occasionally, until softened, 7 to 8 minutes. Add the stock and 1 cup water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Add the orzo and chicken. Cook until the orzo is al dente and the chicken is heated through, about 7 minutes. Add the lemon juice; season with salt.

Cool really good

I think of this as a sheet pan sandwich recipe. You roast a bunch of mushrooms and scallions in a hot oven as your main components. And you whip up a simple poblano yogurt while those are roasting. Pile everything high on top of hearty slices of well-toasted bread, and you’re set.

Mushroom Scallion Tartine with Poblano Yogurt

The poblano yogurt is a key component here, but I totally understand if you want to skip out on it because of time, lack of poblanos, or you’re anti-chile. No problem, just about any flavor-forward yogurt slather will do in its place. You could simply crush a clove of garlic into some paste with a pinch of salt, and stir that in your favorite plain yogurt – also delicious. Or, whisk a tablespoon of harissa paste into your yogurt.

Hair is always a topic that we as women love to discuss and hair is ever changing it seems. We have to stay up on new things to keep our hair looking good as we age, so that’s what I’m sharing today. Today on Fashion over 50, I’m going to dive into the curly hair conversation that we started last week. Every time I wear my hair curly, you all love it. I get a lot of compliments here and on Instagram raving about my curly wavy hair. I’ll add that my hair is more wavy than spiral curly these days, although I think it was a bit curlier when I was younger as you can see from the pic below.

This recipe for Alfredo Chicken Pot Pie replaces the classic sauce with a jarred alfredo sauce and uses a rotisserie chicken. It's quick, easy and can be made with as few as 4 ingredients! Pin It!I’m always on the hunt for quick and easy meals.  Always.  We have our standards and favorites, but there’s always room for more.

Such is the case with this Alfredo Chicken Pot Pie.  We love our classic Chicken Pot Pie, but this time I switched out the standard cream of chicken with jarred alfredo sauce and my family just loved it.

This recipe for Alfredo Chicken Pot Pie replaces the classic sauce with a jarred alfredo sauce and uses a rotisserie chicken. It's quick, easy and can be made with as few as 4 ingredients! Think classic chicken pot pie, but kicked up with the delicious flavors of cream and parmesan from the alfredo sauce.

And y’all, this is ridiculously easy.  You can make it with as few as 4 ingredients.  For real.  A rotisserie chicken saves you the time it would take to cook and shred chicken (it adds great flavor, too) and the rest is refrigerated pie crust, canned veggies, and the alfredo sauce.  SO quick and easy!

If I’m feeling fancy, I like to take it to the next level and brush the crust with an egg wash to get that golden brown color and then top it with grated parmesan cheese, but it’s totally optional.

This recipe for Alfredo Chicken Pot Pie replaces the classic sauce with a jarred alfredo sauce and uses a rotisserie chicken. It's quick, easy and can be made with as few as 4 ingredients! There are tons of different alfredo sauces out there all with different flavors.  I usually just go with plain alfredo for this, but you can switch it up by using garlic alfredo, basil alfredo, etc.  The mushroom alfredo is pretty magical in this, too.  But with each of them, they’ll have varying levels of salt so be sure to taste the mixture before adding much salt and pepper.  You may not need it at all.

Y’all enjoy!!

Alfredo Chicken Pot Pie

Foods

  • 1 small rotisserie chicken, meat removed and shredded – about 4 cups
  • 1 (15-ounce) jar prepared alfredo sauce
  • 2 (15-ounce) cans mixed vegetables, drained (I use Veg-All)
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 (14.1-ounce) box refrigerated pie crusts (two crusts)

Optional:

  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 tablespoon grated parmesan cheese
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.  In a large bowl, combine the chicken, alfredo sauce, and drained vegetables.  Mix gently.  Add salt and pepper to taste.

  2. Unroll one of the pie crusts and line the bottom and sides of a deep dish 10-inch glass or ceramic pie plate.  Spoon the filling into the crust.  Unroll the other crust and lay it over the top.  Pinch the edges of the two crusts together.  Cut 4 1-inch slits in the top crust to allow the air to escape.

  3. Optional: In a small bowl whisk the egg and the water together. Lightly brush the top crust with the egg wash. This allows the crust to develop a beautiful golden brown color as it bakes. Sprinkle the parmesan cheese evenly over the crust.

  4. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is heated through.  Allow to rest for about 5 minutes before serving.  

You can swap the canned mixed veggies out for about 3 cups of frozen, thawed mixed vegetables if you wish.
