Chicken Pot Pie

Chicken Pot Pie

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!
