Dad’s Chicken Pot Pie

Around here I am all about a semi-homemade meal. Schedules are hectic, kids run around crazy, and I just don’t have time to be in the kitchen all day long. Yesterday I was craving comfort food – I turned to my stack of recipes and picked out Dad’s Chicken Pot Pie. By ‘dad’ I mean my own dad. He loves to take recipes and tweak them to be his own. He really gets an A+ for this one! The best thing about this meal is that there really is no need for a side dish, and everyone asks for seconds.
