97. Herb-basted Chicken Pot Pie from Gables Diner
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
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.
