puff pastry chicken pot pie

main dishes

The men in our life love chicken pot pie. The first version of chicken pot pie we made used cream of chicken soup, and not everyone was that fond of it. A good pot pie recipe is a must for any busy household because it is a one pot easy meal. We all need a pot pie recipe that everyone loves. We came up with this version and all of a sudden, we had a crowd pleaser – don’t sub the puff pastry for another type of crust – the light, buttery taste is perfect. Make two if you have a crowd coming, and consider your meal done!
