d-feast friday: cobblestone chicken pie

I absolutely love bandwagons.  So, when one goes by and catches my eye, I make a run for it and hop on.

This particular bandwagon is super special because it involves my favorite subject . . . . . food.

Every Friday that I feel like it I will post a recipe and include carb counts for all the D-folks joining in.


Today's recipe was one I just tried for the first time this week.  It was a major success, despite the ingredient list!  My family is pretty adventurous with their eating, however, I still like to disguise or finely chop certain foods.  What the kiddos don't know won't hurt them!

Cobblestone Chicken Pie

• 5 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil, divided

• 3 medium leeks, cut in half and sliced

• 2 cups diced fresh mushrooms (I diced these very small and even my mushroom-hating boy didn't find 'em!)

• 1 cup red bell pepper

• 1 cup diced celery

• 1/3 cup all purpose flour

• 1/2 tsp dried rosemary

• 1/2 tsp kosher salt

• 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

• 1 (14.5oz) can chicken broth

• 3/4 cup half-and-half

• 3 cups diced cooked chicken

• 1/2 cup frozen peas

• 2 Tbsp dry white wine (or extra chicken broth)

• 2 cups 1/2-inch sourdough bread cubes

• 1/2 cups freshly grated Parmesan cheese



Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Heat 2 Tbsp olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook leeks, mushrooms, celery and red pepper until tender, about 15 minutes. Stir in flour, rosemary, salt and black pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute. Stir in broth and half-and-half. Cook and stir until thick and bubbly, about 5 minutes. Stir in chicken, peas and wine/broth. Spoon into an ungreased 2-quart casserole dish.


Toss bread cubes with Parmesan cheese and remaining 3 Tbsp. olive oil. Sprinkle evenly on top of casserole.

Bake, uncovered, for 30 minutes until casserole is bubbly around edges and bread cubes are golden.
