Hello blog friends!  It's Sheena's sister Shannon again!!

This time I will be sharing my husband's homemade chicken pot pie recipe!!  I am super blessed that my husband loves to cook, and his cooking is absolutely amazing (Sheena can definitely vouch for that)!

He also takes a lot of pride in his creations.  Cute story.....  You all probably remember I do photography, and you know dinner is going to be good when my husband wants me to get my camera out and photograph the food he's made!

So he takes the chicken pot pie out of the oven and says "Honey, you gotta get a picture of this!" After I photographed it in the casserole, he said "Get one on a plate too!"

Yep, I'm a lucky girl... Not only does he cook good, he appreciates my photography too!

We usually make this with chicken, but if you have leftover turkey after the holidays, it tastes wonderful prepared that way too!

This is always a favorite with anyone who gives it a try. This batch is perfect for 6 servings, but you can double the recipe and use a 4 quart baking dish for a crowd!

Pot pie is such an amazing comfort food. With the weather in Minnesota being SO cold this time of year, recipes like this defintely hit the spot.

I just love the flavor the dried thyme adds to the creamy sauce. All these flavors are so simple, but the combo of them all together makes your mouth water!

  3. Do you think it would work to take the filling and make two pies out of it? Instead of a big casserole?
