Chicken Pot Pie

Chicken Pot Pie

Cookies!! This cold weather has got to go! It makes me cook too much comfort food! Just something about the chill makes me want warmth…in the form of dinner. After this, we’re only cooking veggies! Okay, I’m lying, but that sounded like the right thing to say. Let’s talk Chicken Pot Pie…

How easy was that?? And, to reduce the cook time even more, you can use a rotisserie chicken. I don’t like potatoes in my Chicken Pot Pie, but if you do, cook some and add them in at the same time as the chicken. Just be very careful while stirring. You don’t want to have mashed potato pot pie!

The star of this show is my homemade pie crust! Flaky, buttery and soooo easy to make! Very few ingredients. And you can make it ahead of time for ease. Here’s the recipe: http://www.coopcancook.com/pie-crust/

Don’t skip the egg wash!

This pot pie freezes well too! Unbaked or baked. If you’re going to freeze it, I suggest preparing it in a disposable, aluminium pan. Wrap it in foil then place into a freezer bag. When you’re ready, thaw it and bake!

Happy Cooking,
