Chicken Pot Pie in a Bread Bowl

Chicken Pot Pie in a Bread BowlYesterday I mentioned that I recently conquered my fear of making bread bowls.  And now I can’t believe it was a fear because they’re as easy to make as dinner rolls.  Click here for my bread bowl recipe.

We had chicken pot pie on our dinner menu and I decided to serve up the chicken pot pie filling in bread bowls instead of a pie crust.  And WOW!  We loved it.  It might be my new favorite way to eat chicken pot pie.

    Dan and I were just having a conversation the other day about chicken pot pies that we had growing up. These look even better. I’ll share the recipe with him. He’s a better cook than I am ; )

    I love that I have everything in my pantry/freezer to make this right now! All I have to do is pick up a rotisserie chicken on my way home!
