Deconstructed Chicken Pot Pie

Hope everyone had a fabulous Valentine’s day 🙂

Sorry I haven’t been on in like 10 days but I just haven’t been feeling like blogging lately.

It’s not that I don’t have material to share, I certainly do.

I just haven’t been feeling like writing it all down.

But it’s time to get back to it 🙂

SO here we have deconstructed chicken pot pie 🙂

pot pie

This recipe is super easy to make, like OMG ridiculously easy and soo very tasty!

And instead of using pie dough I used biscuits. Why? Because I hate pie dough! I’ve had a handful of terrifying experiences with it and since I’m not ready to face my fears yet I just try to avoid it as much as possible.

I had some leftover honey biscuits from when I made the beef stew so I decided to use them in this and it definitely turned out fab!

The filling is creamy and rich, with lots of chicken (yum!), peas and I love the addition of corn, top it with a honey biscuit and you have a perfect weekday meal straight from Comfortown 🙂
