In case you didn’t know, Sept. 23 marks National Great American Pot Pie Day.
If the day has caught you off guard, fret not. Lifestyle blogger Debi Morgan has a “Skillet Chicken Pot Pie” recipe that’s quick and easy to make.
Instead of using traditional pie crust, Morgan’s recipe calls for a crispy puff pastry top while the rest of the filling remains crust-free – which cuts down on prep time and makes cleanup easier. Better yet, the pot pie can be made in less than an hour with fewer than 10 ingredients.
