Craving cold-weather comfort food? Just in time for Thanksgiving, our very own Davina Thomasula teaches us a thing or two about mastering the chicken pot pie! With winter in full speed, the pure, homey comfort of flaky bread stuffed with rich and creamy chicken and vegetables is hard to resist.
The chicken pot pie originated from Greece where people would take meat and pile it in open pastry shells, and then it was the Romans who added on the crust years later to make it a pie. This fun, cozy sharable dish is a good one for making with friends, and relatively simple to perfect! This recipe sticks with basics like chicken, mushrooms and carrots, but feel free to branch out with the ingredients and use turkey, beef, or a variety of veggies.
Check out the video below and learn how to make a chicken pot pie and master this ultimate comfort food. We recommend enjoying under a fleece blanket in front of a fireplace, with a glass of Las Rocas Garnacha, a fruity red that pairs well with the dish, for the ultimate effect.
