Chicken Pot Pie

I think I can modestly precede this recipe with only one word.


[Please note, I said I could. I did not say I would restrict myself to only one word. That would be wholly un-Abbie-like.]

I made this chicken potpie on the spur of the moment. Sorta. I peered into the fridge and saw a gallon-size plastic bag that contained what appeared to be a chicken carcass.

The bag was labeled, in a suspiciously child-like scrawl, "Boilet Chicken".

Being an expert child-like scrawl-translator, I assumed it to mean "Boiled Chicken" and determined to make good use of it.

And I did.

There's a little back-story here. Because a few months ago, I made a chicken pie that basically caused me to die and go to heaven. (But I was sent back on a mission; to share the recipe with all of you.)

And then I lost the recipe.

This caused me to go into mourning.

So I found a couple similar ones and decided to try to recreate it.

It was a success.

We made short work of it.

And I had it leftover for lunch today. (The same punk who wrote "Boilet Chicken" on the bag - and who I shall mercifully leave unnamed - also kindly put away the leftovers... in a tall Cool Whip bowl.)

(I love kids.)

Alright, people. Here's the printable recipe:
