So far this contest is going quite well! And today everyone has a chance to add to their chances (redundant?) of winning a free Cuisinart Immersion Blender. Last week we posted how you can enter so check it out in case you have not read it yet!

For this week to enter this is what you need to do:

  • Go onto our Facebook page and share the following photo (we have the photo there already, you just need to hit “Share”):

  • Go to our twitter page and re-tweet the following photo (we have the photo there already, you just need to hit “Retweet”):

If you do both you get your name entered four times into the drawing! Yes, we are upping the ante…just wait until next week for our next task!

Now time for today’s recipe. We decided to try some simpler recipes for our readers who don’t want to buy a lot of ingredients. Today- chicken pot pie!

Easy Chicken Pot Pie

Only 6 ingredients but a lot of deliciousness!
  • Servings – 6-8 servings (it refrigerates awesomely for leftovers)
  • Prep time – 5 minutes
  • Cook time – 30 minutes


  • 1 bag frozen veggie medley (10-16 oz), thawed
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup (try the kind with herbs if you want)
  • Leftover cooked chicken, as little or as much as you want (we used 1 large breast), cubed/shredded
  • 2 cups pancake/all-purpose baking mix
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 eggs


1. Pre-heat oven to 400°F.

2. In a pan (9″ pie or 7 x 11 dish, or whatever you have), mix the soup, chicken, and veggies. Make sure the veggies are thawed and not frozen!

3. In a separate bowl, mix the baking mix, milk and eggs. Pour this batter over the chicken and veggies.

4. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.

5. Serve and enjoy!


PS- you can halve the batter ingredients if you have a smaller dish or just want less crust, but we like crust.

    Erica, I was excited when you were telling me about this one on Saturday, but after seeing all the pictures, I’m super excited to make it! Also, I shared the photo on Facebook (with a shameless plug ;) )!

    Wow, this is such a simple recipe for chicken pot pie. I should really get over my stigma of not using any canned “cream of…” ingredients.

    P.S. I don’t have any ramen recipes for you :(
    But I do know that a good ramen requires a lot of work. If you guys are feeling truly inspired, go for it! I’m sure some internet research will give you sufficient information. Good luck!

      Yeah we’re still not the greatest fans of “cream of” ingredients but they are great for college students and certainly better than not cooking at all!

      We’ll do some research and see if we can find a good ramen recipe!

    Yay! I love your site. I made the buffalo wings a while ago. I’ll have to try the chicken pot pie now! I shared and tweeted. Feel special, it’s my first tweet since 2009. :)

      We do feel special! How did you like the buffalo wings?

    Yay! I’ve been looking for a way to make chicken pot pie without having to do the individual pie crusts and everything. Going to make this for the Marine husband tonight. haha. I shared it on facebook and on twitter. Thanks so much guys! :)

      Let us know how it turns out! And we have you down for four more chances :)

        Like I said, I made this last night. AMAZING! So tasty. Only thing was that it wasn’t really creamy. seemed to be soaked up by the crust. Not a deterrent for me though, my husband and I loved it. Thanks so much for the recipe!

        • http://cooking-in-college.com Declan and Erica

          Yeah we noticed that too. Next time we might add a second can or maybe more juicy chicken!

      • http://jordanharrison90.wordpress.com jordanharrison90

        I wonder if maybe even a little bit of chicken stock would help.
