Sorry I haven’t been on in like 10 days but I just haven’t been feeling like blogging lately.
It’s not that I don’t have material to share, I certainly do.
I just haven’t been feeling like writing it all down.
But it’s time to get back to it
SO here we have deconstructed chicken pot pie
This recipe is super easy to make, like OMG ridiculously easy and soo very tasty!
And instead of using pie dough I used biscuits. Why? Because I hate pie dough! I’ve had a handful of terrifying experiences with it and since I’m not ready to face my fears yet I just try to avoid it as much as possible.
I had some leftover honey biscuits from when I made the beef stew so I decided to use them in this and it definitely turned out fab!
The filling is creamy and rich, with lots of chicken (yum!), peas and I love the addition of corn, top it with a honey biscuit and you have a perfect weekday meal straight from Comfortown
