Wow, this was a long week. Work was crazy and we also had a very long weekend. We went up to Albany to visit some friends and had an absolutely blast. We don’t get to spend as much time with these friends as we would like so it was wonderful getting to spend a couple days just hanging out and having fun. The beer and whiskey was flowing freely and I definitely need a nap.
I didn’t have a chance to get to the grocery store last week, but luckily I forgot to skip my Blue Apron delivery and actually had groceries delivered right to my door! What a happy accident. The week’s menu included: Italian Beef Grinders, Shrimp and Pineapple Fried Rice, and Chicken and Sage Biscuit Pot Pie. We both loved the grinders and the pot pie, however, the fried rice fell a little short. The shrimp just wasn’t fresh enough. Tonight, I review the Chicken and Sage Biscuit Pot Pie.
It was delicious. At first, I wasn’t sure about simply poaching the chicken. I didn’t think it would give it enough flavor. I was pleasantly surprised by how tender and flavorful the chicken was. The gravy was creamy and delicious. Don’t skimp on the sage, it add so much depth to the dish. I would also recommend adding some frozen peas if you have them. Jason and I both agreed that peas would have been a welcome addition. This recipe serves four and it comes together pretty quickly. Those biscuits only take 12 minutes in the oven and they come out a delicious golden brown. This is the definition of comfort food.
Dig in immediately! I hope you all have a wonderful week and check back next Sunday 🙂
