When you've had a long hard day but still want a dish that's quick and easy and one that will make you feel warm, comfortable and fuzzy on the inside. Honey child you have found it with this "Southern Pot Pie" it has a creamy rich broth, country veggies and succulent tender chicken chunks that will transport you back to a child again.
