Chicken Vegetable Pot Pie
I told my husband to name a dinner and dessert… anything he wanted… and I would make it and put it on the blog.
I was a little nervous about this. He’s been known to request some odd meals, or just straight up guy food. Most of the food he requests I’ve never made before, including this one.
The words “Chicken Pot Pie” flowed out of his mouth so fast it was like he had it on his mind for days, weeks, months…
I hesitated… did an eye roll in my head, even thought about cooking something else. I felt way out of my comfort zone, but I sucked it up and went to the store then made his requested dinner.
My husband was happy, even giddy at times. He kept on peeping in the oven to make sure the crust didn’t burn. It was actually kinda cute…
You’ll need some chopped up carrots, mushrooms, onions, and yukon gold potatoes (I only cook with yukon.)
You’ll also need some frozen peas, and cooked chicken either shredded or chopped.
I’m not much of a chicken pot pie gal, but this came out really good! This dish screams comfort food!
As for what he requested for dessert… you’ll have to wait for tomorrow 😉
