Chicken Pot Pie Casserole

This week hasn’t felt like real life. I have been in a daze. A hangover of vacation. And the “back to the real world” has been hard to adjust to.

We got back from Costa Rica just about a week ago. Why do I always feel like I need a vacation AFTER my vacation. Just a few more days (or a week) built in to get up the motivation to unpack, get the laundry caught up, realize that I actually have to figure out my own meals, and adjust to the grind of work again.

But I think I am finally, almost, there. We had an absolute freaking blast in Costa Rica. Hands down one of my best vacations ever. I will have to post a few pictures soon of some of the things we experienced while there. Some of the highlights include: amazing view of the arenal volcano out the door of our 1st hotel room, Ziplining through the rainforest canopy, swinging on a huge tarzan swing in the rainforest, hanging out next to a tree filled with 100s of iguanas, getting up close and personal with a rare albino howler monkey, helping to rescue of a baby goat from drowning in the Rio Frio, amazing show from a humpback whale on our boat cruise, snorkeling with tropical fish, relaxing with family and new friends, and an amazingly beautiful, intimate, and moving wedding for my sister and her new husband with the sun going down over the pacific in the background.

So here we go! Back from the warmth and sunshine into the grey and cold.  But that also means warm comfort foods and casseroles like this one. Creamy and hearty and filling. Comfort food worth sharing!

  3. I'm having a pot pie orgasm right now! TRYING. And I am so happy you had a good time on vacation. You did forget to pack me though... ;)
  4. Sounds amazing! Both your vacation and the chicken pot pie casserole.
  5. Omigoodness it sounds like you had a BLAST in Costa Rica! So jealooouus. I completely agree that I always need a vacation after my vacation. And ooooh this pot pie casserole is BEAUTIFUL (omg pretty leaf cut-outs on top) and looks perfectly warm and comforting for these chilly almost-winter times.
  6. I know how you feel. Coming back from vacation is so painful. :) The pot pie looks very warm and comforting.
  7. Made this for supper last night; having leftovers today for lunch. So easy and delicious! Thanks for the recipe and the lovely, inspiring photos! (One question, though: it seems a little soupy. Any ideas?)
    • I just realized that the liquid measurements are too much. The recipe states what I did the first time I made it. I cut them back by a half of cup the second time, but forgot to edit the recipe. I'm sorry. I hope you enjoyed it any way. You can also always add more of a slurry (flour mixed with water) to it to thicken it up more if needed.
  8. Love chicken pot pie! This recipe is a keeper.
  9. I love the touches of leaves on the top cut out from the crust -- sooo perfect to complement this beautiful dish!
  10. Prettiest chicken pot pie I've ever seen! Sounds delicious :)
