Chicken Pot Pie

Lynnda Cloutier


This recipe is from The Pie Lady from North Carolina. The recipe was found written on an invoice for Remco Supply, located on Wendover Avenue in Greensboro, North Carolina. Remco sold fasteners, tools, shelving, shop equipment and storage racks. I've made this one and it's great.
