Whats for dinner tonight?

Since our vacation apparently I have been starving my husband. I have been eating healthy and that means I have no desire to cook things I cannot eat. Why would I do that to myself ? As a foodie I think it is torture to cook and smell a good meal and not eat it.

But Jamie has made his complaint {mentioning how Turkey sandwiches just don't do it for him} and I have reconciled to making dinner again like any loving wife should do. He works out in that cold and dismal weather, as I stay mostly warm inside our home.{i should do something nice right?}

He is a comfort food kind of guy, so today I have resolutioned myself to make a dinner I wont be eating. Well at least not much more than a taste! And both my boys will be warm and happy!


1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cubed
1/3 cup olive oil
1 tsp minced garlic
¼ tsp onion salt
¼ tsp black pepper

1/2 cup chopped onion
1 cup sliced carrots
1 cup frozen green peas
\1/2 cup sliced celery
1 can cream of chicken condensed
½ tsp celery seed
1/8 tsp black pepper
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1 can (14oz) chicken broth

1 pie crust{I used frozen but you can make yours)

Preheat oven to 350°F.

In a skillet, place oil, minced garlic, onion salt, black pepper, and 1 lb chicken which has been cubed.
Cook on medium to high heat until cooked through. Using skillet from the chicken, add carrots, celery, and onion. Pour in enough broth to cover the vegetables. Set left over broth aside for future use.
Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes.
In a bowl combine chicken, carrots, onion, celery, frozen peas, condensed soup, celery seed, pepper, salt, garlic powder. Add left over chicken broth until the desired consistency is reached.
Lightly grease a 9”x9“dish. {i use a vintage pink glass pie dish} Place mixture in bottom. Place crust on top and brush with egg whites or butter.
Bake in preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes, or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly.
Cool for 10 minutes before serving.

This is really good! And easy! Give it a try! And foe Dessert Peanut Butter cookies with a Kiss in the middle his absolute favorite!
