Chicken Pot Pie

A couple of weeks ago I did a post on the wonders of chicken and biscuits.  I touched upon the coveted position of “most trusted meal” in our family;  how we can use the broth from the chicken for months after the fact, and how this warm and hearty dish is almost always reincarnated to a favorite of the kid within us all – chicken pot pie.

This is the perfect post-weekend meal for our family.   Sealed and stored properly in the refrigerator, the originals (leftovers) of chicken and biscuits will keep for several days, paving the way for a nearly finished meal on Monday.

Like all of us, our boys have their dietary preference and admittedly we get an occasional wrinkled nose in response to their, “What’s for supper?” question, I don’t ever remember a single word of protest when the answer is chicken pot pie.

The collective response is quite the opposite, in fact.  Hands are washed, little bodies are seated, and often hands are folded together in anticipation of one of their favorite meals.

I have a great crust recipe that I am very happy with and with such tasty fixings ready to go from a previous meal of chicken and biscuits, it is really difficult to find any words of criticism for this warm and satisfying family meal.
