Reviews for Chicken Deep Dish Potpie
"Why would you use tarragon in a chicken pot pie? Ewww!"
"Forgot to add that it was 1/4 tsp of celery seed and I also added garlic powder about a tsp."
"This is the best pot pie recipe we have found so far. I highly doubt we will look for another at this point. The only thing I would change is to double up on the rue. It is pretty good for the first initial meal. But if you have leftovers, as we did, it is a bit dry after reheating. Another note, I had no tarragon so I used celery seed in its place."
