Chicken Pot Pie

Chicken Pot Pie

This is a savory, creamy pot pie recipe, the ultimate comfort food! I have made this many different ways-in a deep pie plate, a 2 quart casserole, a cast iron skillet, and in individual pot pies made in oven safe bowls. One tip: check your pot pie at approximately 15 minutes, if your crust is browning before your filling has started to bubble, lay a piece of aluminum foil over the crust to keep it from burning.
