When I was young lad, I used to LOVE chicken pot pie, in the form of a frozen meal, of course. I would heat it up in the microwave and BOOM, a gourmet chicken pot pie. Now, I think GUH-ROSS, I wouldn’t touch one of those things.
I asked my mom if she knew how to make chicken pot pie and she said, and I quote: “Well, probably but it would take way too long.”
