Chicken Pot Lattice Pie


What you need:

2 eggs
½ cup unsalted butter
1 tbsp. garlic, minced
1 onion, chopped
1 cup celery, chopped
3 cups chicken breast fillet, cut to bite size cubes
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
1 lb. packaged mixed vegetables
½ cup button mushrooms, sliced
1/8 tsp. rosemary, dried leaves
1/8 tsp. sage, ground
1/8 tsp. thyme, ground
1/8 tsp. oregano, dried leaves
1/8 tsp. sweet basil, dried leaves
1 ½ cups chicken broth
½ cup cream of chicken soup
½ cup cream of mushroom soup
½ cup light cream
2 cans crescent rolls

What you need to do:

In a small sauce pan, place the eggs and bring to boil over high heat. In a Dutch oven, melt the butter over low heat and reserve 1/3 for brushing the crust topping. Bring the heat up to medium high; add the onion and sauté for about a minute until skin is translucent. Add the garlic and celery, toss lightly and continue to sauté for a minute more. Reduce the heat and remove the sautéed mixture from the pot; transfer to a plate and set aside.

Place the chicken cubes by a handful of batches at a time, stirring between each addition to thoroughly coat every piece with butter. Raise the heat to high and continue to brown the chicken cubes while constantly stirring for about 2 minutes. Add the mixed vegetables, mushrooms, all the spices, salt and pepper. Give it a good stir and reduce the heat; cover the pot and simmer for 5 minutes.

Your eggs should be ready by now; remove from heat and dip them in a bowl of ice water. This makes peeling the shells off easy. Slice the boiled eggs cross wise and set aside.  Preheat the oven to 400°F. Return to your simmering pot; add chicken broth raise the heat and bring to a boil; stir all the cream and continue cooking for 10 minutes more stirring constantly. Transfer the mixture to a 9 x 11 oven tempered casserole dish and put the egg slices on top of the mixture. Cut your crescent rolls to half inch wide strips. Arrange the strips over your dish in lattice design; brush with the reserved melted butter and place in the preheated oven.  Bake for about 15 minutes or until crust turns golden brown.
