Chicken Pot Pie

Is there a more comforting dish than Chicken Pot Pie? It is one of our favourite comfort dishes around here. Flaky, buttery pie crust enveloping a creamy, savoury filling. Herbs, vegetables and chicken.

As far as comfort meal goes, pot pies have to be one of the best cozy meals out there! I absolutely love eating them and a homemade version is easily the most delicious version there is!

Chicken pot pie has always been a special meal for me. Growing up we didn’t eat it very often so when we did, it was truly special. We would devour it!

From the golden, flaky crust to the creamy, savoury filling, there is truly no better contrast in textures and together they make the most delicious bite!

A while back, I posted a recipe for a healthier chicken pot pie soup. It’s delicious and definitely hits the spot, but sometimes, darn it, you just want the buttery crust! Today is one of those days.

I used a homemade crust to make this but a store-bought crust does the trick. I often use a store-bought crust but I happened to have some pie dough in the freezer from my last baking adventure and so I used that up. The recipe is easy to make once the pie crust is taken care of! And if you are using leftover chicken, a store-bought rotisserie chicken, or leftover turkey from your holiday dinner, the recipe becomes that much easier! I highly recommend making life easier every chance you get!
