DAMN…what is it about classic chicken pot pie that really gets me pumped? The creamy filling, the warmth of the chicken and vegetables, the crunch of the pie crust. Probably ‘all of the above’, but whatever it is, it’s a chicken pot pie recipe you won’t want to miss.
It’s gotta be my favorite comfort food of all time. I found this chicken pot pie recipe online at Taste of Home and it was so delicious I had to share it here. Enjoy every fork (or spoon) full.
Just getting the chicken ready for some awesome-sauce!
Seriously…this 9” Pyrex pie bowl could barely fit everything I put into this pie but it’s a trooper. If you’re in the market for a good pie bowl, you can buy this Pyrex one here. Chicken pot pie for days!
Want the SECRET to keeping the filling inside the pie???
Fold the edges of the top layer over the bottom layer before you ‘pinch’ it together. I found that that works very well in keeping all that goodness inside.
