comfort food time: chicken pot pie!

While I try to cook rather healthy during the week, 
sometimes I get hungry for
comfort food.
Food that makes you get your jammies on, curl up on the couch,
and watch some reality television with.

Food that, if you had to replace your husband with food, you would choose it to provide you with love an affection.  
Just kidding.

One of my favorite comfort foods is chicken pot pie.
Back when I was too afraid to cook I would buy the 99 cent Banquet variety, 
and would have to eat two or three to achieve the right level of "comfort"
{aka food coma.}
Then I decided to be brave and try
the homemade version.
Best decision I've ever made {recently.}

The recipe I used is found {here} -
the only difference is I used chicken,
and I did it 

Yeah, that's right - 
we aren't afraid of carbs 'round here.
No sir.
{okay, a little.}

Mmmm...so flippin' good...
especially curled up on the couch with a glass of wine, 
watching drama ensue on The Bachelor!
{best 'women tell all' in a looong time!} 

What is your favorite comfort food?  


  1. pizza, pizzzzzzzza. But that sure looks delish!!!!!!

  2. looks delish, i love comfort food! I was curled up watching the bachelor last night too!

    take care

  3. Omg, that looks amazing! I will have to try that recipe. Last time my husband tried to make chicken pot pie the crust didn't get cooked... and I about threw up. But, I'm still willing to try again, haha.

  4. Wow homemade crust and all! Impressive! It looks really good. I don't think I've ever tried a completely homemade chicken pot pie. Mine has always been a mock version using Bisquick. :) Definitely going on my menu list!

  5. I like comfort food (mac&cheese!!), but i like wine even better!!! :)


I adore comments. So leave one. Or two. Or as many as you want.
