Winter is starting to show it’s ugly head here in Toronto. Couldn’t help but think of comfort food so here is my take on Chicken pot pie.
There really isn’t anything special about this other then this is a very practical dish to make while living on a boat. I might as well make a couple of these and freeze them for later.
The Ramekin I use is 3.5″ Wide and 2.5″ Deep.
