Another creamy delicious chicken pot pie. Personally I think it's thyme that makes the difference in this pot pie than some others I've had. Maybe I just like thyme but this is really really good. And sometimes if I don't have a puff pastry I just make a pie crust and it's just as good. This recipe is easy and for a "moments notice" lunch or dinner you usually have all the ingredients already in your kitchen. One skillet to saute in and one dish to bake in....no big mess.;-)
