Homemade Chicken Pot Pie...I'd never made it before...so created this one today!

Please ignore the weird little pieces of crust on top...I just threw some little scraps on top, not thinking about how that would look for the photo...lol

This turned out so Flavorful with lots of chicken, veggies and spices all tucked inside a buttery crust.

You can certainly add or delete any vegetables as you desire...I just made this again and omitted celery, added fresh green beans and a sweet potato...YUM

Enjoy! :o)
