Rosemary Chicken Delight

(aka what to do with leftover chicken, gravy, baked potatoes & veggies) -
original recipe (5/17/12)

2 c. chicken broth
3/4 c cooked shredded chicken
1 c chicken gravy
Put these in crock pot on Low for 30 min - 1 hour while you chop veggies and microwave potatoes (if you don't have any baked yet). Micro washed & pricked potatoes on high form 4 minutes each (a total of 3-4 should be enough). Chop 1/4 c to 1/2 c of at least 3 kinds of veggies - your family's favorite. Could include cabbage, green onions, sweet peppers, celery, carrots, mushrooms. Chop mostly baked potatoes into cubes and add all to crock pot (veggies & potatoes). Remove 1/2 c. hot broth and add 2 T cornstarch to it. Mix well, then add 2 tsp ground pepper and 1 tsp dried rosemary (or 1 T fresh, washed and crushed rosemary). Add to crock pot along with another 1 c. of milk. Cook on Low for another 30 min. Stir every 10 min. until served. Should thicken 20 min. after cornstarch is added. If too thick for your tastes, add more milk or broth (be sure it's hot first).

Variation: For a casserole, use only 1 c. broth, and no extra milk after the first 3/4 c. Also, do not add any potatoes; instead serve over baked potatoes or rice.
