Deconstructed Chicken Pot Pie

I love comfort food dishes, but they can take quite a bit of time to make. And sometimes after a long day, all you want is a comforting meal without having to put forth all that effort and time. This recipe for a deconstructed chicken pot pie from Cooking Light uses rotisserie chicken meat to speed up the process without taking away from the overall taste of a traditional pot pie. The “crust” is actually a round of puff pastry that is baked separately in the oven to stay crispy. This recipe takes about 35 minutes to make so you can have this comfort food even on busy weeknights! Ingredients: 2 sheets frozen puff pastry dough, thawed Cooking spray 1 tablespoon canola oil 1 cup chopped onion 1 cup chopped carrot 1/2 cup chopped celery 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour 2 cups unsalted chicken stock 1 1/2 cups chopped skinless, boneless rotisserie chicken breast 1 1/2 cups chopped skinless, boneless rotisserie chicken thigh or drumstick 2 ounces 1/3-less-fat cream cheese 2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Chocolate Pumpkin Cream Cheese Truffles

I had a craving for a pumpkin treat this weekend so I went in search of a recipe I could make with stuff I already had on hand. I came across this recipe from Whole Foods for Pumpkin Cream Cheese Truffles and was all set to make them as stated in the recipe. But I find white chocolate to be such a pain to work with and honestly, I don’t really like the taste. So although the Whole Foods recipe is the inspiration for this post, my recipe is completely different. These pumpkin truffles are made with dark chocolate and are then rolled in toasted pecans to give it some crunch. Ingredients: 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips 2 Walkers Stem Ginger Shortbread cookies, crumbled 3 Walkers Highlanders, crumbled 1/4 cup canned pumpkin puree 1 tablespoon confectioners’ sugar 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon pinch of fine sea salt 2 ounces cream cheese, softened 1/3 cup finely chopped pecans

Nutella Swirled Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars

It’s time for my monthly Walkers Shortbread Blogger Ambassador program post, and I think they tailored this one just for me! This month’s theme is “Fruit Desserts for Fall,” where we were asked to use in-season fall autumn fruits including apples, pears, cranberries, figs, pomegranates, or pumpkins. Clearly, there was no question which one I was choosing. Walkers Shortbread also has an exclusive promotion for I Can Cook That readers. Now through Monday, September 23, you can receive 25% off your total purchase, excluding sales items when you use the promo code ICCTFRUIT. So you can experiment with your very own fall treats! (Another favorite of mine that uses Walkers Shortbread is this Gingerbread Chocolate Pumpkin Trifle) Because it is September and it hasn’t completely cooled off just yet, I thought I’d go for a chilled dessert. I have wanted to make Pumpkin Cheesecake for a while now and this seemed like the perfect opportunity. But to make it a little more special, I decided to swirl in some Nutella. The crust is a mixture of Walkers Shortbread Highlanders and Stem Ginger Shortbread Cookies to give it a bit more flavor. I adapted this recipe from a recipe for Pumpkin … Continue reading
