When’s best to eat chicken pot pie
Yummy chicken pot pie is a filling meal to share with family and friends at any time, particularly when chill winds are forecast or rain is beating at your windows. If you’re lazy – like us- use frozen puff pastry for the topping, and you’ll then discover this dish just takes minutes to whip up. The great thing about chicken pot pie is that it gives an instant lift when life is getting you down. Next time you’ve been overlooked for promotion at work or you’re worried about a friend or family member, take time to prepare this hearty, comforting dish and learn to put your stresses behind you.
How it’s made
Another benefit of chicken pot pie is that you can use leftovers from your Sunday roasts to make the dish. Simply freeze any leftover chicken until you feel the urge or craving for pie, then mix up a creamy white sauce for your meat. Add some fried leeks, chopped bacon pieces, onions, mushrooms… whatever takes your fancy. Then pour your creamy sauce into a pie dish. Roll out some puff pastry for the topping and glaze with a little beaten egg yolk. Pop it in the oven and wait for your yummy pie to bake!
