Chicken Pot Pie

This recipe used to be called Turkey Pot Pie but since then, I started eating chicken again.  I had a crazy aversion to chicken after a a couple of really bad food poisoning incidents.  It look a while but slowly but surely, I started eating chicken again.

This pie is the definition of comfort food and perfect for those cold winter nights.
