People look at me like I have two heads when I tell them I like winter. I love the crisp cold air, the snowy landscape that makes everything seem so much brighter, and truth be told, I don’t mind hunkering down in a good old fashioned snowstorm (as long as all my peoples are safe!)
There are so many other things about the winter season I love, and the return of comfort foods are high on the list! Foods like this delicious chicken pot pie recipe that I am sharing today.
Today I am getting together with a few of my Canadian blogging friends to share our favourite cold weather, comfort food recipes. You can find links a little further down to each and every delicious recipe as well as a printable recipe for my Chicken Pot Pie.
I first came across this easy chicken pot pie recipe in a copy of a seasonal publication from Kraft here in Canada. However, since I forgot to make a list when I went to the grocery store I didn’t exactly get the ingredients the recipe called for, so I made it all my own!
The original recipe called for a homemade cream cheese pastry. Since I was adding this to my weeknight meal plan, I decided to use prepared frozen puff pastry instead. Huge time saver, but still a lot of buttery pastry flavor.
It also called for Philadelphia Cooking Cream in Italian Three Cheese Flavour. What did I buy? Philadelphia Cream Cheese in Herb and Garlic, not the cooking cream just plain old tub of cream cheese. I did manage to buy the right frozen veggies!
I love using little ramekins for these individual pies. I have a couple of different sets in different sizes. I have had mine for years, but (affiliate link) these ramekins are similar.
As it turned out, this chicken pot pie was delicious. Loaded with chunks of chicken and vegetables in a creamy garlic and herb sauce covered in a crispy flaky crust, it was a huge hit. I even made a vegetarian one for Sam (Just left out the chicken) and baked it in a different size ramekin so she didn’t bite into the wrong one!
