NoshNosh!: Chicken Pot Pie & Better Than Sex Cake *…*

this past week-end, i decided to be extra in the kitchen..again. on the menu: chicken pot pie and better than sex cake. better than sex cake is soooooo good, not better than sex but still really good. there is a Paula Dean version of better than sex cake…”is it really better than sex cake”, i think i might make it for Superbowl Sunday

ingredients needed:

chicken pot pie

– 3 1/2 cups of flour, half a stick of butter, 2 eggs

– 1-2 lbs of chicken breast cut into cubes

– 2 carrots, 1 medium-sized onion, 2 scallions

– 1 cup of chicken broth

– 1 can of cream of mushroom or cream of chicken soup (don’t add any extra water)

– 2-3 slices of bacon

– basil, garlic, parsley, pepper to taste

 

1. mix flour, butter, 2 eggs, basil, garlic and pepper into dough

2. brown bacon, set aside

3. using a teaspoon of oil, brown chicken cubes in pan, set aside

4. using a separate pan, cook your carrots, scallions and onions until soft. place the onions in the pan last, allowing them to “sweat out”

5. add 1 cup of chicken broth to the vegetable mixture, simmer

6. add cooked cubed chicken and cream of mushroom (or cream of chicken) to vegetable mixture

7. place pot pie filling into non-stick baking pans ( i used two 9 inch round pans) and cover with dough mixture

8. brush pies with egg yolk wash,top with scallion and bacon.place in oven at 375 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes or until golden brown

 

better than sex cake

1 box of chocolate cake mix

1 can of sweetened condensed milk

1 can of whip cream or cool whip (“coo whip” lol) topping

fresh strawberries (about 10 to 15)

 

1. cut strawberries into slices

2. after mixing cake and placing into greased/floured pans, place half of your strawberry slices on the cake mix

3. bake as directed

4. before allowing cake to cool, you are basically going to mess up and mush your cake with a fork (this will allow for the sweetened condensed milk to really set in)

5. pour can of sweetened condensed milk all over cake. don’t be cheap either, use the entire can

6. allow cake to cool for 10-15 mins

7.  top with whip cream or cool whip topping, decorate your cake with the rest of your strawberry slices

 

enjoy : p
