A random dish my husband always requests is Chicken Pot Pie. There must be something nostalgic for him, because I’ve never really made them before…and I’ve also never really seen him order one at a restaurant, but it seems to be something he is also talking about, so I decided to give it a whirl!
*Kid Friendly dish, Jeff approved too!

My mom gifted me this AWESOME Mini Le Creuset Stoneware Crocotte Set for Christmas. It’s currently on sale and even comes with a little cookbook.

The Chicken Pot Pie Recipe I made last night is a spin on the one I found in the cookbook. If you don’t have a crocotte set or dutch oven, you can use any small oven safe bowls for this dish.

I hope you love this recipe as much as we did last night!
