Pot Pie Perfecttion
Chicken pot pie is one of those comfort foods
we look forward to as the season turns. I'm not
talking about those frozen abominations of our childhood. I am, of course, suggesting you can and should make one yourself.
It's not hard. It's delicious. You could make this as a completely vegetarian dish. Don't forget to check out your local farmers' market for end of season bounty. Many mushrooms are available in the fall and they would work beautifully in a pot pie. Mail order organic produce is a terrific alternative, especially if you want to ingredients such as exotic mushrooms, like Bears Head or Cauliflower.
Use my pie crust recipe or a frozen puff pastry sheet to create a beautiful top crust. For savory dishes I like to add some dried herbs to the crust. Thyme is nice with chicken or veggies.
