Classic Chicken Pot PIe

This recipe was featured in the Saveur Magazine celebrating their 150th issue.
This is a delicious vegetable packed rustic pot pie with chicken and black truffles.
Kinda reminds me of the "Pasty"

Good idea to make chicken and vegetables the day before.Then thicken it the day you want to eat it!
