Mishu requested her mommy to buy her frozen chicken pot pie whenever they shop at BJ's wholesale but her mommy promised her that she will make a delicious chicken pot pie myself instead of getting the frozen food.
Instead of making the pastry skin,I bought a ready made pastry in box.Read here:lazy!! I guess I always gave myself an excuse that making my own pastry skin it's time consume and the $$ almost the same.But I do make the filling from scratch!!(pat my own back)hehe!! This rich chicken pot-pie is not only delicious but affordable.
