Delicious Chicken Pot Pie

I only have one word for this recipe...YUM!  We love this chicken pot pie and it has quickly become a favorite meal in our house.  I've made this for my parents and for friends, and everyone loves it.  Before making this recipe, I'd never had chicken pot pie, but now I know it's a delicious meal!

This recipe is another from the fabulous website of Recipezaar.com.  It's easy to put together and I usually like to prep the veggies ahead of time, so I can just throw it all together and bake it.  I use store bought pie crust (because it's easy and tasty!), cut back the chicken to 2 cups and as usual, use whole wheat flour and skim milk.  I highly recommend this pot pie...it's amazing.

Enjoy!
