After having just been through an extremely cold weekend (minus 22 degrees celsius) and Blue Monday, I was in desperate need of some good old-fashioned comfort food.

This recipe is from Cooking with Carlee, and what I love about it is that it uses sour cream instead of milk. So not only does the sour cream make the filling super creamy, it also adds a bit of tang which balances the overall richness of the pie. The filling is simply chicken, potatoes, veggies, cream of chicken soup, sour cream, and a touch of thyme, garlic powder and onion powder. Mix it all together and spoon it into your pie crust. Bake for an hour and you have a piping hot homemade chicken pot pie.

How to freeze chicken pot pie for later use:

The great thing about chicken pot pie is that it also freezes well. To freeze an unbaked pie: assemble everything together (skip brushing the top pie crust with milk) and place in the freezer. Once frozen, wrap tightly in saran wrap and place in a large ziplock bag. Label the ziplock bag with the date and place back in the freezer for up to 3 months. When ready to bake, brush the top with milk, and bake for 15-20 minutes longer until the filling is bubbling. If the crust starts to brown too much before the center is cooked, loosely cover with foil.

To freeze a fully cooked pot pie: let the pie cool completely and follow the same instructions as above. To reheat: bake for 30-35 minutes until the filling is bubbling. See recipe below for full instructions and baking temperature.
