Chicken Pot Pie

Chicken Pot Pie

I made this dish for Pi day (3/14). It was fun to make and I surprised my wife with it. She laughed when she saw the Pi symbol made out of crust. When I was cooking the chicken, I added some poultry seasoning. Don’t add too much 1/4 tsp is enough. You don’t want overpower the flavor. It was very tasty. Added a side of broccoli and dinner was awesome. Turn on the fireplace, add a glass of Chardonnay and you have the makings of a real nice evening. Might even light a candle or two. 🙂
