Stovetop Chicken Pot Pie

You may remember one of my goals for 2011 is to make a new dish at least once a month.  I haven't forgotten this and lately I've found myself trying lots of new dishes and recipes.  Mr. D has been lovin' it and hasn't complained about a single thing I've made.  In fact, he usually wants seconds and will pack left overs in his lunch the next day.  Can we say progress?  (Not to mention eating at home is better for the budget.)

In the current issue of Southern Living, one of my favorite magazines, I found a recipe for Stovetop Chicken Pot Pie.  I loooove chicken pot pie so I was very excited to see this.  I glanced at the recipe and it didn't appear too advanced, so off I headed to Kroger to pick up a few extra ingredients. 

Just a few of the ingredients.

The onions & mushrooms as they sauteed. 

Almost finished.
(Mr. D says it looks like throw up in the does not taste like throw up.  I promise.)

I added a few extra ingredients to my stew because I wanted it to have more substance.  I added both carrots and potatoes and next time I think I will add even more.  Also, the carrots helped give it some color, which I liked.  

While I was upstairs cooking up a storm, Mr. D was down in the basement on his exercise bike.  He's prepping for Tour De France this summer.  (Not really...but it sounds impressive, right?)  When he walked up stairs he kept going on and on about how great everything smelled.  While the stew for the pot pie may look like throw up when it's sitting in the smells and tastes delicious!  Mmmmmmm.

The finished product. Mr. D gave it two thumbs up!

I am definitely inexperienced in the kitchen and this recipe was not only easy-peasy, but delicious!  You want to impress your family/husband/friends?  Make this one!  Trust me, if I can do it, you can do it!!!

Hope y'all have a wonderful weekend and definitely let me know if you end up trying out this recipe.
