A Cupcake By Any Other Name...

is still pot pie? That's right! I saw a recipe on another website the other day for
Chicken Pot Pie Cupcakes. Of course, I had to tweak it for my own likes. I didn't understand why onion powder was being used instead of real onion, or garlic salt in place of
real garlic. There was plenty of salt in the form of cream of chicken soup! I sauteed green beans, carrots, celery, onions and garlic in a bit of butter. I left out the onion powder and the garlic salt. Instead of using Herbs De Provence, I chopped up some
fresh thyme, rosemary and parsley
Every once in a while you need a quick dinner in your arsenal. These cupcakes are pretty powerful weapons in that arsenal. They are very tasty, and satisfying. Coupled with a nice green salad, or steamed green beans or asparagus, and you have an easy quick
meal that is nutritious and satisfying. Two cupcakes are plenty for a meal and are in the neighborhood of 240 calories each. Not light fare, but not horribly caloric either.
On the next go around I plan on making a bechamel with a reduced chicken stock instead of the condensed soup. It will be easier to control the sodium and, I think, will be healthier and better tasting. I don't think it will add too much extra time to the effort
I hope you enjoy making these delicious cupcakes.
