****Editing Notes: After I posted this and went into the kitchen, I saw the recipe for Alice Springs Chicken on the refrigerator. Then it hit me, I didn't make Smokehouse Chicken, I made the Alice Springs Chicken. They're basically the same recipe, but I thought I would fix my review anyway. I'm definitely having a "duh" morning....
3 recipes to share with you today....
Chicken Pot Pie
Kerry first pinned this recipe on Pinterest. Chicken pot pie isn't something I think about making very often, mainly because I've been disappointed with recipes I've tried in the past. This recipe from Pillsbury sounded like it might be a winner because 1). It was easy, 2). Didn't use cream of chicken soup (which I try to avoid if possible), 3). Had a flaky crust instead of a biscuit-type crust I've seen in several recipes.
It really was very tasty and easy to put together. It was super creamy and flavorful! I did add a few extra spices to the filling (garlic, thyme, and oregano). One mistake I made was not letting the vegetables thaw out first. I thought they would be fine since the pot pie had to bake for 30-40 minutes. I was wrong. They were a bit crunchy!
Alice Springs Chicken
This recipe is supposed to be a knock-off of Outback's Alice Springs Chicken. I've never had it at Outback, so I can't make much of a comparison. This recipe was pretty tasty though! It could be a bit time consuming for those who might have to get supper on the table quickly, since you have to grill the chicken first, then broil it to finish it off. I loved the flavor of the Lawry's Seasoned Salt marinade with the dijon mustard. And anything with cheese and bacon is always delicious!
