Chicken Pot Pie (Ultimate Recipe Swap: Favorite Fall Foods)

This URS is the special Fall-Festival [4] edition. If you haven’t already, check out some great gatherings of autumn inspiration:

Each hostess is offering a great giveaway in conjunction with her theme. And it’s never too late to participate!

Well, 8:01 pm PST on Sunday might be too late. But, you have until then to share your comments and links. It’s our hope that you will be encouraged and inspired to make the most of this new season. Winter will be here before we know it.

Today’s Ultimate Recipe Swap is Favorite Fall Foods. I shared earlier this week some of my favorite dishes to cook [8] once the season changes. One that didn’t make the list this week is one that we actually enjoyed last week: Chicken Pot Pie.

This is the typical reaction when Chicken Pot Pie is on the menu at our house.


Almost all the FishKids enjoy this dish. One FishBoy balked at the carrots and the peas and the gravy and the potatoes and the crust.

But, other than that, he loved it.

People seem so intimidated by Chicken Pot Pie, but it’s really a super easy recipe. And it’s a great make ahead meal. Just like my apple pies [10], I often make several at once, wrap tightly unbaked, and freeze them. How nice to pop a pot pie in the oven on a night when I don’t want to cook, but crave good home cookin’!

And they are so much better than the store bought kind!

[12] What’s your Favorite Fall Food? Share it with us either through the comment section or leaving the link to your post below. Everyone who participates this week will be eligible for a random drawing of The Autumn Book [13] by Susan Branch. Enter prior to 8 pm PST, Sunday night.

Can’t wait to see what you got cooking this Fall!
