This Weekend in Hedonism (Segment 3)

  • Cheryl's Recipe Corner!
  • Chicken Pot Pie Soup
  • Ingredients
    • 2 tablespoons butter
    • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
    • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth (from 32-oz carton)
    • 1 1/2 cups milk
    • 1 package (1.6 oz) garlic and herb sauce mix  (Knorr Pasta Sauce Mix, Garlic Herb, 1.6 oz?)
    • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
    • 1 cup diced frozen hashbrowns
    • 1 bag (10 oz) frozen mixed vegetables
    • 2 cups chopped deli rotisserie chicken
  • Directions
    • In 3-quart saucepan, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender. Stir in chicken broth, milk, sauce mix and pepper with whisk until smooth. Stir in diced potato; heat to boiling. Reduce heat to medium; cook 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are tender. Stir in frozen vegetables and chicken; cook 10 to 15 minutes, stirring frequently, until thickened and heated through. It's versatile. Have leftover cooked turkey? You can use that in this soup instead of chicken. No biscuits on hand? Try cutting small 1-inch rounds from Pillsbury refrigerated pie crusts and serving them baked on top of the soup. You can even mix up the veggies in this recipe to match your family’s taste—broccoli, corn, carrots, green beans and onion are all good choices for this hearty soup.  Feeling inspired? Most chicken soups are easily customizable.

  • Russ's Drink Corner
  • Knob Creek Single Barrel Straight Bourbon Whiskey
  • Description
    • When Booker Noe created Knob Creek, he revived full-flavored, pre-prohibition style bourbon. Each bottle stands as a hard-earned piece of bourbon history and each barrel is a story all its own, uniquely influenced by nature, time and its individual journey. That’s why Knob Creek Single Barrel Reserve remains its purest expression of old style flavor. Each bottle remains un-blended, highlighting the singular characteristics of our finest hand-selected barrels.
