Comfort food is best served when it’s cool outside. As the temperatures drop, I find myself reaching for those comfort food recipes more often. This homemade chicken pot pie recipe doesn’t ever disappoint, and it’s a favorite around our house!
I always serve homemade chicken pot pie with homemade mashed potatoes, but you could serve it alone too! This is also great reheated the next day too. I love that this recipe uses a store-bought crust, so I don’t have to worry about making the dough too. This recipe comes together pretty quickly, so it’s perfect for a weeknight meal.
