Postholiday Pot Pies — Comfort Food Feast

by in Recipes, January 2nd, 2013

Individual Chicken Pot PiesNow that the presents have been opened and the ball has dropped, there’s only one thing left: polishing off those remaining leftovers. All of the ingredients clogging your fridge — the stalks of celery, mounds of carrots and leftover meat — need an exit plan, and we’ve got one. Put it all to use with the epitome of comfort food, a pot pie steaming hot from the oven.

Ina Garten fixes the quintessential Chicken Pot Pie, complete with a homemade pastry recipe. For those with little time to spare, Sunny Anderson’s Easy Chicken Pot Pie reaches the table in just about 40 minutes.

Ellie Krieger’s Chicken and Biscuit Pot Pie is crowned with a homemade biscuit crust, and Giada’s Mini Chicken and Broccoli Pot Pies are perfect for party passing.

These pot pie renditions all come down to shape. The Neelys’ Individual Chicken Pot Pies (pictured above) are sized down for a personalized touch, and Melissa d’Arabian’s Chicken Pot Pie Turnovers add a handheld dimension. Or put the pie crust to the side with Food Network Magazine’s deconstructed Chicken Potpie Soup.

And why restrict it to chicken? Paula Deen’s Turkey Pot Pie is laced with cranberries and butternut squash. Sunny Anderson’s Second Day Turkey and String Bean Pot Pies put your holiday turkey and leftover green bean casserole to use.

Fix a meat-free version, like Aida Mollenkamp’s Vegetarian Pot Pie, which comes stocked with mushrooms, carrots, potatoes and more.

If you’re craving a new flavor profile after all the holiday comfort bliss, Alton Brown’s Curry Chicken Pot Pie and Sunny’s Southwestern Chicken Pot Pie add a welcome kick.

Even if you’re all set on the leftovers front, there’s no better way to ring in the New Year than with a comforting pot pie.

    25 to 30% of your diet should be proteins. When people are asking me how to lose weight fast I always get them to look at their protein intake. Various processes and activities are going on in our bodies. Things are broken down and being built up again. Resistance has to be built up, recovery from disease too is needed and for all this the body needs plenty of proteins so see to it that 25 to 30 % of your diet consists of proteins .http://www.foodnetworkrecipestoday.com/
