There are some dishes that everyone should know how to make. Chicken Pot Pie is one of them.
I can make this dish with my eyes closed, as I have been preparing this recipe for the last forty years.
When anyone was sick or feeling feverish, I knew this recipe could restore them to good health!
It is adapted from one of my favorite cookbooks from Madison, Mississippi and was purchased for me at the Canton Flea Market. If you have never experienced the Canton Flea Market, held twice a year, then you should make plans to attend. It's the market to end all markets. We would always spend a day in October browsing the square in Canton.

I like to make this rather rustic. I use chicken thighs because they add better flavor and moisture to your recipe. I prefer the vegetables to be rather chunky, than finely chopped. And peas....oh honey, a chicken pot pie is not the same with a can of peas! And...yes, it does use a can of mushroom soup..it's a southern staple. Talk about comfort food......your family will know they are loved when you serve this one!
