Chicken and Ham "Pot Pie"

Mr. U and I LOVE this recipe!! It's too good not to share. It's got the "Pot Pie" in quotes because you don't actually make a crust for it- you simply serve it over store bought refrigerated biscuits!! Quick. Easy. Warm. Delicious. Definitely a keeper in our home.

Chicken and Ham "Pot Pie"
1 (7 1/2 ounce) package refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
1 Tablespoon butter
1 boneless, skinless chicken breast
1/2 pound boneless ham steak, cut into but sized pieces
1 (16 ounce) package of frozen veggies (we use Asparagus Stir-fry blend)
1 onion, chopped
4 garlic cloves (actually, we use about 6 BIG cloves!!!)
1 1/2 cups reduced sodium chicken broth
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 Tablespoons cornstarch
3/4 cup skim milk

Prepared biscuits according to package directions.

Melt butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken and ham and cook until chicken is cooked. Add frozen veggies, onion and garlic. Cook until veggies are thawed and stir in chicken broth, thyme and black pepper. Cook until heated through.

Dissolve cornstarch in milk and stir into skillet. Bring to a boil and cook until thickened, about 1 minute. Put the hot biscuits in individual bowls and top with this yummy filling and serve.

This is supposed to serve 8 people, but often, well, the three of us make it into two meals.

NOTE: I like to add extra veggies to our meal. I always keep frozen green beans in the freezer, so I will add a handful or two of those. Plus, I have a large bag of diced summer squash (yes, the yellow stuff) and I'll put a handful or two of that in as well. Mr. U actually LOVES the veggies in this!! Hip hip hooray!!!!!

Also, you can definitely make your own homemade biscuits instead of using the store-bought ones.
