  1. This dish is so cool. Taking a good dish and upping it to something better.

    • Thanks, Emily. Chicken Pot Pie is still one of my favorites, but when time is short chicken pot potatoes are the way to go!

  2. What an absolutely genius idea! Perfect for those cold winter nights where comfort food is needed!

    • Thanks for the comment, Crystal. However, spring and summer months can sometimes call for comfort food too. I made these on a hot day, and since they only take 15 minutes the kitchen was still cool, and so was I.

  3. As it happens, I was planning on doing something with chicken and potatoes for supper, tonight. I think I’ll make this! I’ll have to cook my chicken first, but since it’s boneless, skinless breasts, it shouldn’t take much extra time at all. Thanks, Renée!

  4. Such a comforting looking dish! I love the way you put it over potatoes!

  5. Bill is a HUGE chicken pot pie fan! I must make these—so much easier than dealing with pie crust in the summer!! The whole family will love this!
