Skillet Chicken Pot Pie
This chicken pot pie has been a recipe in the making for weeks now. I had a strange hankering for chicken pot pie one day before I went to the grocery store and decided to make one for dinner. Now that is very out of character for me, usually I’m not one to go for a chicken pot pie or super comforting foods. Normally I would be trying to make some ambitious Japanese meal or pasta but instead, I was dead set on making an easy chicken pot pie but alas, I got busy and by the time I went to make it, almost all of the ingredients had gone bad. So back to the store I went to get what I needed, making it immediately after so I didn’t make the same mistake!
It really ended up worth the struggle because dang, this is one awesome meal! Everything about this chicken pot pie recipe screams comfort food and it has just the right amount of flavor. I know this easy chicken pot pie will be a regular addition to my dinner plans!
Tips on skillet chicken pot pie recipe
- Don’t have a skillet? A pie pan or a similarly sized circular pan works too!
- I would highly suggest not doing a lattice on top, it started sinking into the pot pie when I was trying to arrange it before baking.
