Chicken Pot Pie

I have made a few pot pie's throughout the course of this blog. Look here, here and here. And I can't say that this one was definitely better than the others, because I remember really liking them. But I can say that this one has instructions for freezing it for up to 3 months. Also, it had the perfect amount of flavor to it!

I made this as a homey dinner for Scott and his mom a few weeks ago. Just as delicous as ever!
