Chicken Pot Pie-- Mmm, Mmm Good!
Tonight I decided to try out a recipe from my new cookbook from my kids-- "The Pioneer Woman Cooks". This is a great book -- much more than just a cookbook. I enjoy Ree's style of writing, and all the beautiful pictures she includes in the book. Anyway, I followed her recipe exactly (well, except that I didn't have any white wine to put in it), (oh, yeah, AND I forgot to add the seasonings -- major mistake -- I was just so excited to get it in the oven), but besides that -- even without the salt, pepper, and thyme included before baking -- it was delicious! My husband is not a huge fan of thyme, and he always adds his own salt, so I don't think he even noticed. His comment was, "delicious!" Ree's pie crust -- called "Perfect Pie Crust" -- really was perfect. It was light, flakey, and so, so, good. I had my doubts as I was mixing it because it seemed too wet to me, but sure enough, it rolled out beautifully and WAS perfect!
