Chicken Pot Pie Bake

Chicken Pot Pie Bake

Hey friends!

We had a ROUGH week this past week. I won’t bore you with all the details, but we were all sick, and none of us got very much sleep. I skipped posting a recipe last week, because honestly Who KNOWS what kind of recipe I would be writing- I might’ve told you to pour coffee in soup, and blend it with ice!

I also pretty much took the week off from the kitchen, because my energy was sapped, so it was a week of quick meals, most of which came out of the freezer. But on Saturday, I got right back in there!! *Happy Dance* Since I hadn’t really gone grocery shopping, there wasn’t much to chose from. I had shredded chicken that needed to be used up, so all i really knew was that chicken would be the basis of the meal. I asked Eric what he would like, and he basically said “Whatever you make will be good.” Thanks for the help, babe. 

I decided comfort food was in order after the week we had… Chicken Pot Pie needed to be made!

Chicken Pot Pie Bake

This came together from a memory I had of how my aunt used to make her Chicken Pot Pie for family gatherings. I lightened it up quite a bit, and of course, I added cheese. You don’t have to add the cheese, because that would lighten it up even more and make it more traditional. But I would. I’m sure she also made a delicious homemade gravy. I thought about making up a homemade gravy, and perhaps I still will and add it in the future, but I wanted to make this quick and easy enough for a weeknight dinner.
