Back In The Kitchen
Anyway, most recently I've tried a recipe for mini chicken pies made in a muffin tin. Well, they were pretty good but I wouldn't call them pies... they were more like skimpy chicken and veggie buns sort of but with not so much bun. In my so-called-chef experience, chicken pies have gravy in them, these ones did not. I won't say I disliked them because I'd be lying if I did! They went down pretty darn well with a glass of fruit punch alongside some boiled potatoes. Nothing fancy just wanted to get them thrown together but something was missing.... I feel they should have been more of a bread bun with chicken but it lacked in the bisquick mixture to make a full bun. And now that I have a whole big box of bisquick that I purchased just for that recipe that only ONLY required a few tablespoons.... sigh .... what have I got to lose with experimenting.
I also intend to make the sticky bun breakfast ring some time this week but I need to purchase a bundt cake pan first because I only have the tube cake pan (you know, the one that comes in two pieces) and I'm told not to make this sticky bun in a tube pan because the sticky cinnamon leaks and will cause major burns when you try to remove the pan from your oven and it drips on you - not to mention the mess it'll make of your oven!
I'm not sure what's next on the cooking agenda otherwise but I do need to shop for some new cooking/baking supplies....
