Chicken Pot Pie

For months now I have wanted to make a chicken pot pie from scratch. For some reason I was putting it off, maybe even a little nervous, I guess I still have a lot of doubt in my new-found cooking skills! Last night was the night though and I have to tell you, it was worth the work! The flavors were amazing and all the ingredients worked so well together, I definitely recommend this recipe if you are in the mood for some down home comfort food!! Now, I used Tenderflake deep dish 9" pie crusts for this - next time I'd like to make my own from scratch but this was perfect none-the-less

I followed the recipe to the "t" {I have included it at the end of this post} and I have to tell you, I don't think I would change a thing!! Above is the pot pie right before I placed it in the oven..

And here it is, fresh from the oven..

My hubby thought enough of this "event" to take a photo of me and my pot pie..I felt like the prize winner at the county fair ;)

See my cute new oven mitts? They've got chickens on 'em!!

And here she is folks..the finished product..YUM!

The end result? This dish was flavorful, moist and delicious! I highly recommend it and am so glad I found it through my search on Google. Want to try it out for yourself? Here's the recipe:
