I had a friend ask me if I'd ever posted a chicken pot pie recipe on SFFS...and I couldn't believe I had NOT. I used to make CPP all the time when my kids were little. It was one of those throw together easy recipes that busy moms love. I've come a long way, baby...and now have a recipe that is more homemade. Using puff pastry instead of pie crust makes it a little bit special. You can change up the veggies to whatever you like, too! Yummy!

Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south.
