Chicken Pot Pie-- One Dish Meal

Semi-Homemade Chicken Pot Pie Recipe

A delicious one dish meal for a cold winter night!

As a kid I can remember my grandmother working in the kitchen for hours making everything to go into her scrumptious chicken pot pie recipe.  She would start cooking right after lunch and the whole house would smell so wonderful!  Now, I LOVE my grandmother and I LOVE her cooking and I LOVE her chicken pot pie…..BUT there is no way I’m going to spend HOURS in the kitchen making one for my family!

Don’t get me wrong….I adore my family!  I want them to eat the delicious food that I grew up eating…..I just don’t have the time to spend HOURS in the kitchen cooking that meal!  I guess times were simpler back then….I mean, bless my grandma….she really was a SuperMom…..I’ll just have to settle for being a semi-Supermom.  Which works out just fine because this is a semi-homemade chicken pot pie recipe that tastes almost just like my grandmas real chicken pot pie recipe! 😉  Hey, it’s okay….we do what we can as moms and hope for the best!

Anyway, as you notice in the pictures I had to get a little creative because my pie crust fell apart on me…..so I did what any Disney fanatic mom would do….I embraced my Disney Side!  I like to use refrigerated pre-made pie dough because it’s oh so simple and I usually always have some on hand.  I accidentally left it sitting out on the counter too long and even though the bottom unrolled just fine the top crust started tearing apart.  So, I just rolled it all up and used my Mickey Mouse cookie cutter to cut out some fun Disney shapes…..Little Man LOVED it and it made dinner just a little bit more magical! 🙂

Alright, so are you ready for this super simple Chicken Pot Pie Recipe?!

Bye for now! Where I Shop- (1)
Thrive Market - It's like the Costco of organics...this is where I get all of my sugar, flour, baking supplies, kids snacks, etc.
Zaycon Foods- This is where I buy most of my meat products in bulk.  The quality is amazing and the prices just can't be beat!  I mean, $1.89 a pound for boneless all-natural chicken breasts!!  It is bulk but you can always split with a friend or make up a bunch of freezer meals like I do!
