I made the yorkshire pudding base for chicken pot pie and it was absolutely deliscious. Very versatile recipe. This will definitely go into my rotation. I would love to make it the way it is posted but my husband doesn't like kidney. Nonethe less it's a 5 star recipe !!!

This is a great dish. I make it minus the kidneys and use a claret wine. It is a tender, flavorful, filling, hot meal that has taken the place of "regular" stew in our home.
