Chicken Veggie Casserole Stew

One of my guilty pleasures is chicken pot pie…who knew!  I especially like the frozen ones from Marie Callender’s…ahhhh they’re so delicious, but so horrible for you.  I’ve seen a couple of recipes for lighter pot pie, but of course I needed to try it my own way. chickstew1

It didn’t come out as thick as I would have liked, and there was something missing, but still pretty tasty.  Because it was missing that “pot pie” flavor/texture and it ended up more stew-like, I am calling it “chicken veggie casserole stew”.  This is only my first attempt.  I am determined to master this recipe!   chickpie2
