Puff Pastry Chicken Pot Pie

Chicken Pot pie has always been one of my favorite cold time, winter meals.  And, since I’ve been so busy with work recently, I have discovered my new favorite cooking shortcut as well, frozen puff pastry!  With that, the Puff Pastry Chicken Pot Pie was born.  This meal is pretty simple, not time-consuming at all, and it turned out absolutely delicious!

Matt’s new obsession is truffle fries.  It all started with a trip to Umami burger, and he has been talking about them ever since.  So when I saw truffle mac and cheese on a menu recently, I thought I would try it out at home. (more…)
