Chicken Pot Pie


Clearly I have gone rogue over the past couple of months! Between not having a computer and raising two little rambunctious little ones it left me in a pickle! No blogging for me. I have made this chicken pot pie twice in the past two weeks, it is just so yummy! When I think comfort food I think of this pot pie.


When you see my pictures you can say, that is a mom that is just quick snapping pictures of her meal. Because that is exactly what I did :) And by the way, chicken pot pie is very hard to take a picture of when it is steaming hot and the inner parts are oozing with goodness. And even my pot pie is happy! It is saying...dig in!!!
