I found this recipe on the internet and did a little tweaking to make it just right. For ease of preparation and to save time I use Pillsbury's ready-made pie crusts. Also, feel free to substitute dark meat. DH likes boneless skinless thighs so I use that more than breasts. I just make sure to remove the fat before baking. Also, if you are not a fan of Tarragon don't put it. This is so versatile you can use seasonings of your choice.

This is a really delicious recipe, however I can see that there a lot of steps that may be intimidating to some! I made this a little easier to accommodate both my schedule and probably lack of patience! I pre-cooked the potatoes,carrots and peas in my microwave until slightly soft. (Check about every 2 to 3 minutes.) As for the mushrooms, celery and onions, I cooked them all together, starting with the onions and celery then adding the mushrooms. I like the flavor of bay leaf, so I put 2 bay leaves in with the chicken breast and cream, and took them out when I cut up the chicken. I followed the rest of the directions as written. Very good. I will make this again when I have more time. Made for My 3 Chefs 2008
