Flaky Chicken Pot Pie with CrockPot Cauliflower Mash

We all know how busy and hectic this time of year can be with all of the holiday hustle and bustle. Taking the time to make sure our family has a warm comforting meal on the table before we head out to the activities is very important.
 
I don’t know about you, but my day is always full with appointments, deadlines, and household chores. That’s why I often turn to my crockpot and quick delicious home-style meals like Marie Callender’s chicken pot pies.

Marie Callender’s makes it almost effortless when it comes to finding great comfort food just like mom use to make. You can find their mouth watering pot pies in almost every local retail store in a variety of flavors and sizes to suit your family. Our local Walmart store had so many varieties to choose from.

We decided the classic chicken pot pie was perfect for our weekly Menu plan. The pot pie by itself is a full complete meal with delicious quality ingredients, but since I am on such a cauliflower kick these days I decided to pair our pot pies with a simple to make, yet super delicious CrockPot Cauliflower mash.
The tart, salty parmesan cauliflower was the perfect balance to the creamy Pot pies just like mom use to make. Get your cauliflower started a few hours before dinner time to keep your family on track for the busy holiday activities. When the pot pie is ready your cauliflower will be ready and waiting for you too.

Ingredients:

1 large head of cauliflower (Walmart produce has wonderful fresh cauliflower at a very reasonable price!)
3 Cups chicken or vegetable broth
1 Tbs minced garlic
2 Tbs butter
1/4 Cup real parmesan cheese
2 Tbs milk
1 Tbs parsley
salt & pepper to taste
 
Directions: 
Chop cauliflower into florets, place in your crockpot.
add the stock and the garlic to your cauliflower.
Cook on high 3 hours (or low 5 – 6 hours) or until the florets are fork tender
Once the cauliflower is very soft, drain off the remaining liquid.
Mash the florets with a fork.
Add in the butter, parmesan cheese, milk, parsley and salt & pepper.
Using a hand mixer, whip the cauliflower and seasonings until almost smooth. I like a few bigger bits of cauliflower in mine. This is a personal preference, you can leave it as chunky or mix it as smooth as you would like.
Top with a little butter and a sprinkle of parsley for a garnish (optional).
Serve hot, along side your flaky Marie Callender’s pot pie.
