We might love to cook, but we’re normal, busy adults with families and full calendars, too. Sometimes we don’t have time to make multiple dishes. When we have those kinds of nights, we like to make meals that are entrée and side dish all in one, like a classic southern chicken pot pie. It’s got chicken, veggies, a flaky crust, not to mention delicious gravy, all in one dish—what’s not to love about it?
This comforting dish has long been a staple in the recipe books of both southern cooks and southern-at-heart cooks, and it’s easy to see why. They’re a great option if you’re cooking for a crowd, plus they’re so easy to customize to your personal tastes. We’ve also found that it’s a great way to get picky kiddos to eat their veggies!
