Chicken Pot Pie

Save it for later

As usual, I had chicken in the fridge and didn’t know what I would do with it. For once, I wanted something that would make leftovers. So chicken pot pie popped into my head. But I didn’t have any pie crusts. Ugh. However, I had puff pastry sheets! That would work. 🙂 I took the puff pastry box out and let the sheet thaw. When I unfolded it, I realized I only had 2/3 of a sheet! What?! How did that happen? I still haven’t figured that out. Oh well. I rolled it out to make it work. It worked. It was just a little thin. 😉

I used this recipe as an inspiration but made quite a few changes. Isn’t that a cute decoration on the pot pie? I tried my hand at it and you will see the creation below! Not quite as artistic!

Growing up, chicken pot pie was always served over white rice, so that is how we had it tonight! (And with applesauce!)
