My kitchen is smelling especially wonderful this afternoon, and it’s all thanks to this wholesome, belly warming Chicken Pot Pie recipe which you absolutely HAVE to try!
If you’re anything like me, its probably been a while since you’ve enjoyed a great Chicken Pot Pie – and for some of you, images of your friendly (or not so friendly) school lunch lady come rushing into your head at the mere mention of this classic American favorite. Rest assured, this recipe is sure to please school aged children and grown ups alike, and is virtually guaranteed to graduate at the top of its class!
What you have here is a warm, gooey filling that is perfectly balanced out by a crispy, fluffy, flaky crust, which is delivered by the use of Fillo Dough, rather than using a typical pie crust (extra crispy!). I’ll let you in on a little secret.. I actually don’t like pie crust. Gasp. I know right? True story. So I went on the hunt and what I found I’m quite certain is even BETTER than your traditional crust or biscuit option.
You’ll also pick up a great collection of savory flavors thanks to the Redmond’s Real Salt products used in the Pot Pie filling, including Organic Onion Salt & Organic Garlic Salt. If there are two things that I’m about when cooking & baking, it’s using the highest quality ingredients, while also employing tricks to save as much time as possible. Redmond’s Real Salt products help me accomplish both of those things in the kitchen. Not only are Redmond’s products of the absolutely highest quality, but they also allow me to save time by combining different salts and seasonings in the same easy to use container for maximum efficiency.
Without further ado, lets dig in to this delicious Pot Pie recipe, shall we?
