Homemade jalapeño chicken pot pie

I first published this Blog Nov 16 last year… I thought it was perfect for this year again! This is perfect for our 45 Awesomism Days of the Holidays.. This recipe is easy, yummy and best of all can be used after Thanksgiving using Turkey!

 

 

About  a month ago my brother-in-law gave us some amazing  homegrown jalapeño peppers. I’ve never been a big fan of jalapeño peppers… But these were so good, I couldn’t eat enough of them.

Mark used most of them to make some amazing stuffed peppers … But I put three large ones of them in the freezer.

We’ve had our first real cold snap here in Houston… So I was thinking tonight of something that I could make that would warm us up… Wow we decorated for Christmas.

We have Christmas music on in the background… Waiting for the next football game to come on and I just really felt like having a really cozy dinner. Peyton loves chicken pot pie,so I thought why not try my own recipe from scratch.

Being as my house is all torn apart because we’re decorating… I wanted to make something quick and easy. This is a great recipe for the holiday season… Because as you get so busy you can quickly still prepare a meal. Turkey can also be substituted for chicken.

As with all my recipes… Please make sure that you don’t have any food allergies, and that your food is fresh and make sure it’s thoroughly cooked… Basically all the disclaimers!

While you’re waiting for this to be baked… Please head over and check out Peyton’s business! https://teamawesomism.com/

Crockpot Whole Chicken Recipe

This Friday food blog is a recipe from a dear friend of mine. She is the mom/stepmom of seven… She’s a work from home mom and a mompeneur.  Brandy and her husband Mike,  just wrote a healthy living cookbook. So I reached out to her to be a guest blogger for our Friday’s food blog!

I’m always interested in sharing recipes that are healthy and easy. Being a mom of four… one being a special needs child… I didn’t have a lot of time to cook, but I wanted them to eat healthy. I think this recipe definitely fits that description.

Crockpot Whole Chicken “Our 5 year old loves it so much he made his Mom make it at her house!”

I love making a whole chicken in my crockpot! Not only does it make an easy dinner but I save the homemade chicken stock for future recipes and I make bone broth out of the carcass (see bone broth recipe)

 

1 Whole Chicken (we like to buy ours from a local farm but if that’s not an option make sure you get one that is grass-fed, hormone and antibiotic free at the very least, see shopping list)

2-6 Cloves Garlic

Handful Fresh Rosemary

Handful Fresh Sage

Handful Fresh Thyme

Sea Salt, Black Pepper and Turmeric to taste

 

  1. Stuff chicken with garlic, rosemary, sage and thyme
  2. Put in crockpot on low for 6-8 hours
  3. Season top of chicken with turmeric, sea salt and black pepper
  4. Chicken will create its own natural broth so no need to add water
  5. Baste with broth while it cooks
  6. Before serving remove broth and put in mason jar for later use (I let cool on the counter before freezing it.
