Reviews for Homemade Chicken Pot Pie
"Great for the cold winter nights... YUMMY."
"Easy and deelish!"
"To cut down on the fat content you could eliminate the butter altogether and add the flour to the broth and use fat free chicken broth. I made it this way and it still tastes great and my family loved it. Pat"
"If indeed the fat content is correct, you would be consuming almost an entire day's worth of the saturated fat allowed in the average 2000 calorie diet."
"But just think how much fun and tasty it will be eating it! Don't think of the calories or fat grams, etc. OR: just don't make it and deprive you family of some really tasty food!"
