This is my take on the classic comfort food, CHICKEN POT PIE! It was my first time making pie crust. I used Tenderflake lard recipe for the crust! WOW!, What a nice crust for this pie. I made my pie crust ahead of time and chilled it while I prepared my veggies and herbs. Then I rolled out my dough. This was fun and easy and best of all delicious! I hope you enjoy. I would love your feedback.
