I’m a sucker for good comfort food. So when Southern Living chose to feature chicken pot pie on the cover of its February 2011 issue, it wasn’t a hard sell. What I didn’t expect to find was one of the easiest stove top recipes that is easily one of the best pot pie variations — hands down. Of course I’ve substituted Morningstar Farms’ Chick’n Strips for the real thing. And I love the super duper secret ingredients: cream cheese and Italian dressing mix.
