Don't be alarmed by this photo:


This is my first attempt at homemade Chicken Pot Pie.  It looks a mess, doesn't it?   Well, it tasted good.  Really good! I am actually quite proud of myself, if I do say so myself and have found, yet another, recipe that really surprised me at how easy it was to make.  Now, I just need to figure what the heck happened to my crust to make it perfect  for next time.
