Cheating Chicken Pot Pie came from messing around with making mini pies. I love chicken pot pie and I planned to make a chicken pot pie from scratch, but at the last minute I decided to cheat.
How did I cheat? Instead of making a chicken pot pie filling from scratch, I filled the mini pies with chicken soup.
I did make the pie crust from scratch, it is just the filling that was a cheat.
Of course you can cheat even further an buy ready made pie crusts, or even whomp can pie dough.
