This is my favorite easy recipe for chicken pot pie and this is the perfect time of year to make it. I usually just use the Pillsbury ready made pie crusts but homemade will work as well. I love dinners like this that I can just throw together, add a salad and wa la. Dinner is served. Amazingly, even though none of my kids like peas they will all eat this. This is a definite family favorite.
