We’re big fans of crock-pot recipes, especially during the winter months. It’s just so easy to throw all the ingredients into the slow cooker, leave it for a few hours, and by the time you’ve got the kids home, dinner is just a few minutes away. And no recipe is more of a classic than Chicken Pot Pie. This dish makes 8 servings, so you could even share with a few friends, but you’ll most likely want to keep the leftovers for yourself for tomorrow’s meal.
