MiMi's Creamy Chicken Pot Pie

     If the only pot pies you have ever had come in a little red box... just wait... your mind is going to be blown if you try this one.  We had those pot pies as kids sometimes too.  A few chunks of meat and veggies floating in a crust full of gravy.  The best part was getting to carve our initials in the frozen crust of the pot pie that was ours before it went into the oven.  That way we could be sure we were getting the right one when it came out!

    This is something completely different.  It is plumb full of veggies, chicken and potatoes.  There is a creamy goodness that covers it all, making it warm and delicious and flavorful.  It is comfort food at it's finest.  Eating mixed vegetables is a lot more palatable when they are covered in a sour cream and cream of chicken sauce with just enough garlic and herbs.  What a great way to use up leftover chicken or turkey.  It is like a warm hug on a cold day!

  1. It's cooler out this week so I plan to make this again for family dinner Saturday. I'm planning to make a cheddar broccoli chicken pot pie too. If it's a keeper maybe you'll let me do another guest post. I plan to make another flavor of homemade ice cream too since it's technically still summer.

    1. Good, because I need better pictures! This was on my list to make in early fall so I could get some more photos to choose from. ;-)
