Can you use half & half instead of milk in a recipe?

I don't have any milk.  Too lazy to go to the store (as I've been out twice already) to go buy some.  I am making chicken pot pie with a bisquick top.  It calls for milk to mix with the bisquick -- can I use half & half instead?!  (And yes, you don't need to inform me of the fat/calorie content.  I have the box in front of me!)

  • What do you use half and half for that you always have it? I don't think I have ever bought it? Coffee?
  • Coffee.

    I use either half & half, fat free half & half or light cream in my coffee.

    We use ours for coffee, and we pretty much always have it in the fridge.

    The half & half will make the recipe richer and creamier and probably better overall.

    As an aside, did you know that half & half for mashed potatoes makes them much better than milk?
