Comfort Food

I've been catching up and reading blog posts this evening.  I have a Crystal Lite Cosmo in Waterford crystal by my side.  (Tastes better that way I think!)  Oldest son is sleeping over at a friend's.  Youngest son is playing with his Tek Deck miniature skateboards and motorcycles on the oriental rug.  Husband is watching Fox News.  I love a Friday night like this because, as my Great Aunt Katherine would say, "I am worn to a frazzle."  (Must be said with true southern lady drawl.)  And based on what I have read from lots of you, so are you!

Tonight is the perfect night for Jackson's favorite meal:  homemade chicken pot pie.  I can smell it in the oven,  pure comfort food.  Ahhh, here it is...

Here's the recipe for the easiest chicken pot pie ever - and yummiest!

frozen rolled up pie crusts
3-4 boiled chicken breasts
1 small bag of frozen veggies OR 1 can of veggies
1 can 98% fat-free cream of whatever soup
1/4 cup of milk
thyme (this is the KEY ingredient!!!)
salt and pepper to taste.

mix all ingredients and let sit about 15-20 minutes to let the flavors "marry"
pour in pie pan lined with bottom crust
top with other crust (duh!)
bake at 350 degrees for almost an hour.

Pure comfort!


  1. I make this too! I just didn't know about the THYME! Thank you!!! Enjoy your drink⁄

  2. Thanks for the recipe! I think I'll give that a try today:)

  3. I make this one too and you are right, you MUST use thyme!

    You may absolutely share my underground railroad story with your class. Another amazing componet to the story that I didn't hsare in my post is that our pastor is African-American and that many of our parishioners' descendants came over on the Mayflower!

  4. There's nothing like comfort food. Thanks for the recipe. I'm hungry for lunch and it's only 10:15.
