Comfort Food – what does that meant to you? Is it warm, crusty, brothy or buttery? Is it spicy, refreshing, salty or sweet? Whatever it means to you, i’m sure you gravitate to it on a cool winter day when you’re feeling a little low or under the weather. I hope it fills you with warmth.
To me, and to many in the world, comfort is synonymous with pie. Whether filled with meat, cheese, spinach, potatoes, pecans, cream or chocolate, berries, small birds or a mix of all of the above, surely pies have been comforting us for ages.
This recipe is for the most basic and delicious of pies, and perhaps the most all american of pies (other than apple). Yes, I’m speaking of the chicken pot pie

AMAZING! The entire family enjoyed it! Nothing left over, haha. My husband is a picky eater, so I used green beans and corn. I did prepare it in a circular cake dish and included a few additional things. After Thanksgiving, use this recipe to make turkey pot pie.
Since I am not a cook, I strictly followed the recipe, and my husband enjoyed it. It is again on my menu for the following week!
