Snow day - Cheater chicken pot pie

Austin actually got a little snow yesterday! Here is a view from my back deck into our backyard. I swear I really didn't pack Canada and move it back with me, but somehow the weather seems to have followed me back to Texas.

It may be a combination of cold weather and pregnancy but I get a hankering for comfort food during these times. My girlfriend actually first made this pot pie for me after my second babe was born and let me tell you I was one happy Mama to eat it up. I won't be complaining if she shows back up with more when this baby arrives! Thanks for this recipe JC!

This is so easy, you need frozen vegetables, some cooked chicken with your favorite seasonings, campbell's select harvest - roasted garlic potato soup and a pre done pie crust. The beauty of this is you can use up leftovers if you keep the basic staples on hand.

I almost forgot I added some red bell pepper to make mine more purty.... you say "pretty" I say "purty"... that's how it's done round these here parts. So back to the cheater part just chop up your chicken, add your soup and frozen veggies to your pie crust and follow the baking directions for the pie crust.

When dear husband arrives home from work slap on a apron and appear exhausted like you have been slaving over this from scratch for him all day! It is a great meal to make for new Mom's- hint hint or anyone else for that matter. Hope you enjoy!

Funny - a friend that for me after Hailey was born! I think the potato soup must make it. Anyway, I asked her for the recipe and now make it all the time too. So easy!
