Lazy Daze - Semi Homemade Chicken Pot Pie

Renée G.


Yes, I know there's a gazillion recipes here already for chicken pot pie. And, that's the reason I haven't posted before, but one of the granddaughters has requested I put it here so she can find it...and I can't tell her 'No," about anything.

When I would make this for just my hubby and me, I’d also add some mushrooms, but since he’s gone now, and I’m cooking for my son who doesn’t eat mushrooms, I’ve left them out here – but feel free to add mushrooms, corn, or anything else you might like.
