I don’t really remember having pot pie growing up. Actually, I think I remember having it once, and eating everything but the crust which for some reason back then used to gross me out. Kind of dumb right? I mean, who gives up pie crust? Especially when you get to have it for dinner. Since then I’ve heard of pie crust, biscuits, and rolls for pot pie but I think all are delicious. It’s just creamy goodness and bread so in my opinion it’s all delicious!
We made this Pot Pie the other day when we were super busy. It feels like a lot of our days are busy lately and so we are always looking for a new and easy recipe that doesn’t take a bunch of weird or special ingredients. Things we can just find hanging out in the pantry or freezer and still pull off an awesome meal. The hubby was in classes and taking tests all day and then as soon as he got home I had to work for 2 hours. I hate when we miss seeing each other but such is life sometimes. It had been snowing all day too and I wanted something quick, easy and warm. Not just hot dinner, but one that would warm us up from the inside out. I decided to do this pot pie from Paula Deen. While it’s not something that will be a staple in our home it is nice to have on a snowy, busy day.

Chicken pot pie is comfort food.
It has chicken, and vegetables, and grains in the crust, all of which have good nutrition.
