‘Tis the Season for Savory Pot Pies
Of course we all like dessert pies (can anyone really make a reasonable case against apple pie?), but the cold winter months seem to call out for the warm savory goodness of pot pies. There’s just something fundamentally satisfying about pulling a chicken pot pie from the oven—the golden brown crust, chunks of tender chicken, and creamy sauce studded with fresh vegetables call to the kid in all of us.
Best of all, savory pot pies are essentially one-dish meals, so putting one together is usually as simple as mixing up the ingredients and topping them with a crust. And when it comes to that crust, there are endless variations. You can go old-school and make your own flaky, buttery pastry dough, or take an easier route by choosing store-bought phyllo dough or even go with refrigerated biscuits.
Do what works for you. Because when you bring a savory pot pie to the table, we guarantee no one is going to be picky.
