Looking for something easy and homemade for dinner tonight? Check this bad boy out!
Double Crusted Chicken Pot Pie is one of those traditional family favorites around my house! Not only is it budget friendly ( I usually use left over chicken from other dinners), but everyone seems to love it! It really helps warm your soul on a cold winter night!
Despite what you may think, making a chicken pot pie doesn’t have to be a big ordeal. You can actually cook the chicken right inside of it, make your own crust ( I am totally to lazy for that and like to use the refrigerated kind), and throw in what ever kind of veggies you have on hand!
Check out how simple it can really be below!
