Chicken Pot Pie recipes always seemed either too daunting or too ordinary until I played with 3 different recipes to come up with this light and flaky version. It's so easy that it can be changed to accommodate a ground beef or roast beef version as well. Phyllo dough can seem tricky but it is much easier to work with than some may think and the results are definitely worth it!
