Comfort food. Oh, how I love comfort food. Chicken Pot Pie is one of my favorites when it comes to comfort food. Both my girls and my husband gobble it up.
I have a great recipe for pie crust, but today, I used pre-made (gasp!!). I also used a foil pie pan to cut down on dishes since we have guests. And, if you make this pie, just cover it and freeze it before baking. Then thaw and cook according to directions.
Look at that delicious filling. You can double this and freeze it in a zip lock. Then just thaw it and pour it in a pie crust and bake. Easy peasy!!
