Chicken Pot Pie

DSC_0134

When I told my bf that for dinner I made Chicken Pot Pie he looked at me with an inquisitory look and asked why on earth and Italian that cooks delicious Italian food would have ever thought of making a British dish.

Then when he sat down at the dinner table and tried my Chicken pot pie, he immediately changed his attitude and said: “always keep experimenting in the kitchen Dani :)!”

He loved it! So did I and I am sure so will most of you!

Give this pie a shot anytime soon: it’s easy, it’s quick and it’s tasty!
