We all have recipes that we keep coming back to. They’re the ones we lean on for dinner parties or potlucks. The ones we make when we aren’t feeling ambitious, but still want impressive results. We make them over and over again and always get rave reviews. At OXO, we like to call them our back pocket recipes(Opens in a new window).
These recipes are too good not to share, and that’s what inspired us to start collecting them. So we’re getting back pocket recipes from our favorite chefs, influencers, cookbook authors and OXOnians, so you too can have a back pocket recipe to rely on.
Farideh Sadeghin(Opens in a new window), Culinary Director at MUNCHIES(Opens in a new window), has a recipe for chicken pot pie that will make you want to invite friends over immediately to serve them a little taste of home. She keeps it in her freezer-friendly recipe arsenal, making it the quintessential back pocket recipe.
Farideh says: Chicken pot pie is the ultimate comfort food, and the best part about it is that you usually have a lot of the ingredients to make it in your fridge and pantry (just throw in any vegetables you have lying around!). It's the dish I make when I have friends coming over because you can make it ahead of time (heck, it even freezes well!) and just pop it in the oven so you don't spend your evening in the kitchen, but instead, at the table drinking and chatting with friends. And you can top it with anything: biscuits, store-bought puff pastry, or even mashed potatoes (sometimes I top it with mashed potatoes and puff pastry, and serve biscuits alongside). Also, a salad, because you need some greens.
