One of the Best Southern Comfort Food Recipes Ever
This is the perfect time of year to make some of the South's favorite comfort food recipes. Cozy, warm and totally satisfying, this favorite Southern dish is sure to be a showstopper on the table, too. We're talking about a beautiful Chicken Pot Pie filled with hearty vegetables, savory sauce and a crisp, flaky crust. Now don't click off this page if you think you don't have the time, desire or even the ability to make a crust for this dish. The best news of all is you don't have to! As the writer of this blog, I can sympathize with you. I love to cook but when any elements of baking come into the picture, you can forget it. I am just not that interested (or talented). That is why pre-made puff pastry is a godsend. You can find it in the frozen section of most grocery stores these days and it only needs a little time to defrost before it's ready to use. It's the secret ingredient in this dish to make your life a whole lot easier and your pot pie just as delicious.
This Chicken Pot Pie recipe also has the classic elements but with modern, timesaving twists. You don't have to chop most of the vegetables in the filling, since this recipe substitutes a package of frozen potatoes, onions and peppers in place of individually chopping each of these items. The matchstick carrots are also ready to go from the bag to the pan. For the 3 cups of cooked chicken required for this recipe, just grab an already roasted rotisserie chicken from the store and use that. Total timesavers without sacrificing flavor.
You can take the centerpiece off of your dining table and just make room for this dish. It's quite beautiful and sure to wow your guests. Ready for the recipe? Here you go. Enjoy!
