This Chicken Pot Pie recipe is a firm staple meal in my house.
It is loved by both my husband and my kids alike.
It is so tasty and delicious…perfect for those cold winter nights.
Best of all – you can freeze the chicken mixture in advance, and it can be turned not just into a pie, but add some pasta and you have a fancy pasta dish!
