Chicken Pot Pie

This is one of my favourites. I came up with it one day when I had to use what was in my pantry and it ended up tasting delicious. It has a creamy, white wine and herb flavoured sauce with lots of yummy vegies. You can either add steamed chicken to it or a store bought BBQ one - when you're pressed for time as I was.

yea.. it really looks yummy .. you think i can substitute the wine with chicken stock or white vinegar ???

Of course you can Huda, just add an extra 1/2 cup chicken stock - don't add vinegar or it will be too acidic. The wine just happened to be handy at the time so I put it in.
