97. Herb-basted Chicken Pot Pie from Gables Diner

Now

we all know pot pies can go terribly, terribly wrong. Sometimes the

dough is too dry or rubbery and sometimes the creamy innards remind us

more of... well, we'll just say it--semen, instead of sauce. But not on

Gables Diner's

version. Puncture the flakey, not too dense pastry crust and allow a

small puff of steam to escape, then plunge a fork down to find

mushrooms, peas, pearl onions, bits of carrot, and squares of

honest-to-goodness white meat chicken in a light, perfectly

complementary velouté. It almost makes you wish for more chilly days... Nah.
