Food: Chicken Pot Pie

Last week I posted our meal plan for the week. We stuck to it 80%. Unfortunately, the husband got sick and lost his appetite for a few days, so there were a few days that he didn’t eat much and I ate Wasabi Doritos for dinner.

Like a lot of people, I saw the Alton Brown Good Eat’s episode on pie. His method for Chicken Pot Pie is a bit aggressive in my book…making your own puff pastry? Um, that’s not for me. My modification for this recipe was to use a traditional pie crust for the bottom and top crust and use his recipe for the filling.

As I mentioned in a previous post, since there are only two adults in my house, I make portions that are big enough for one meal and freeze a portion. Alton’s recipe worked nicely.  One half recipe fed us for two days and we have the other 1/2 of the filling in the freezer for a later meal.
