Pot pies are one of my favorite comfort foods and this one is not only very tasty, but it's a cinch to put together as well. Recipe taken from Canadian Living's Best One-Dish Meals.

What a real treat! I've never made a chicken pot pie before, and I'm glad I finally did so. This pot pie really is fast and easy to make. I bought a cooked rotisserie chicken at the market when I got my groceries, which made this recipe even quicker to put together. The sauce is excellent! Maybe I used too many veggies or something, but the pot pie needed a little more sauce so next time I'm going to increase the amount I make. We loved this, and I'll be making it many times again.
