The truth about my Chicken Pot Pie

This is one of the staples that we have every so often in our house, mostly because it's dang good.  Also, it's a bit of a fridge cleaner-outer.  I know, you're thinking that I just did that the other day.  Apparently, I have things to clean out of my fridge, okay!?!  Maybe, we just like to eat, I don't know :)  At any rate, I made this chicken pot pie and I made a huge mess while doing so.  But, sometimes, that's just what cooking is all about, no?  I try to clean while things are cooking because I dislike few things worse than having a nice dinner and a full tummy and then walking into a kitchen that looks like a food bomb went off.  It's just not my idea of a good time and I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one!

So, forgive me, this does not do this pot pie justice...but Hubs encouraged me that I could not be the Fox news of food blogging, I must post the good with the bad.  I'm working on it, hence I present my space aged, saucer-looking, very poorly lit chicken pot pie.  Tada!

Haha!  Worst pot pie picture ever!
My chicken pot pie is a slightly modified version of this one.  It always turns out, no matter how badly I try to screw it up.  I used local chicken from Gunthorp Farms, purchased through Green B.E.A.N., of course.  I also included carrots, peas, onions, broccoli and made the sauce according to the recipe with chicken broth, flour, salt, pepper and celery seed.  2 deep dish pie shells and...shabang.  Hint from me to you to avoid aforementioned huge mess, the recipe calls for just a little too much stuff to fit in the pie shell (despite it's claim to be deep), and your liquid will overflow if you are awesome like me.

Again, I attempted...a few photograph a pretty, cut piece of the pot pie.  Here's what we got.  You get the idea, right?  Making your mouth water yet?!?  I swear, it's super yummy, you won't be disappointed.


  1. I am sure it tasted great and that is the point, no??!! It made me laugh anyway, mostly for your commentary, not the space ship looking dinner you made!!

  2. It's can laugh at my food. I was just reminiscing with my dad the other day about how you pretty much taught me to cook. So, basically, in a way, you are to blame for the spaceship looking food disasters :) Thanks!
