Skillet Chicken Pot Pie

Skillet Chicken Pot Pie

This is AWESOMEE. So a little backstory behind this. I came homefrom work last night, and was all excited to make some cheesecake stuffed strawberries, and to take a picture of them with this new camera lens I just got. (Most people probably wouldn’t jump for joy over this activity, but I WAS). The only thing standing in the way was my hungry tummy, a hungry hubby, a frozen chicken breast, and no idea what to do about it. Then THIS idea came into my life and I whipped it up in NO TIME. You don’t have to compromise homemade taste with it either. You use real potatoes, carrots, chicken, and onions, just like your favorite pot pie. I LOVE pot pie. I have a great recipe made with a homemade crust and everything… but that’s more of a Sunday thing. This was ready so quickly and the skillet does all the work! A PERFECT fallback dinner plan when you have no idea what to do : ) (With plenty of time to spare afterwards!)
