Chicken Pot Pie

Growing up, I always loved pot pie night. I insisted on eating mine out of the tin and stirring my applesauce in. My siblings would dump their pie pot out on the plate and then stir in the applesauce. Well, now my pot pie has no tin and while I still enjoy having applesauce with pot pie, I definitely don't stir it in!
This recipe has quite the list of ingredients and can take a little bit of time to prepare but that's okay, becuase there's a whole lot of taste to make it worthwhile!
