One Wife's Pinterest Meal Challenge

I have had chicken pot pie on the brain ever since my failed attempt the a few weeks ago.  I scoured Pinterest for another recipe for “easy” pot pie. Needless to say, there isn’t one. Not at least that will taste good.

In my search I cam across a recipe that I already have in my repertoire! Chicken Pot Pie with cornbread crust http://pinterest.com/pin/91901648616917458/.  I made this yummy recipe the day of Thanksgiving 2010 with leftover turkey, but I haven’t  made it since.

So I decided it was time.  In August. On one of the hottest days of the year. Hmmm.
Maybe my timing was not the best, but I will say, dinner was delicious! No regrets.

Happy Cooking!
