Slow Cooked Curry Chicken Pot Pie in Clay

Slow Cooked Curry Chicken Pot Pie in Clay

Chicken pot pie is another comfort food that reminds me of delicious meals when I was growing up.

Sometimes we'd have them for dinner, and sometimes it was just an after-school snack (on extra hungry days).

But it was always delicious, filling and satisfying.

We used to buy the frozen ones and heat them up in the oven, and now that I'm off pretty much all frozen, prepared and processed foods, I wanted to find a recipe that was comparable.

(You can find that one here).

Once I did that, I thought of a few ways to mix it up and give it a new flavor twist.

This curry chicken pot pie incorporates the delicious goodness of pot pie but with a curry flavor, which adds just the right kick when I'm in the mood for something a little different.
