Butternut Squash & Mushroom Chicken Pot Pie
Fall is my favorite season. The temperatures begin to cool off, pfizer holidays inch tantalizingly closer and new ingredients fill the stores. Winter squashes, viagra 40mg apples, gonorrhea pears, sweet potatoes. Comfort food. The best kind of food.
This weekend it was storming out. Granted we’re in Miami so it was more like a Tropical Storm, but it just seemed like the perfect day for a casserole. So I made a big pot pie, but instead of using traditional carrots and celery, I sauteed the chicken with bacon, lots of portabello and crimini mushrooms and onions. Then I swapped the heavy bechamel for a smoked paprika-spiked butternut squash puree.
The mushrooms and the butternut squash melded into the most delicious gravy and the buttermilk biscuit top was just the thing to mop it all up. Not as heavy as your typical pot pie, but just as substantial and delicious. A new fall favorite around here!
