There is something about the smell of chicken stew cooking in the crock pot…all day long. I am always on the hunt for a new easy chicken recipe to try. When flipping through a Real Simple magazine last week, I knew we had to try this recipe for crock pot chicken potpie. We usually bust out the crock pot on days when we know we are going to be too busy to make dinner. This past Sunday was the perfect day for this crock pot chicken potpie. Of course, we have had our challenges with crock pot cooking, like the time someone forgot to plug in the crock pot. Well, this time we had a new challenge. My daughter had placed the chicken thighs in the freezer – not the fridge – the night before…frozen chicken thighs. Never fear, I popped them into a 250F oven for about 5 minutes, flipped them and then another 5 minutes. They were defrosted enough to go in the crock. Phew!

2. Place chicken on top of vegetables, and season with salt and pepper.
6. Open the crock pot and shred the chicken with two forks. Add the peas, green beans, corn, and cream to the crock pot…cover and cook for an additional 15 minutes.
7. To serve place a scoop of chicken stew in a bowl and top off with a square of puff pastry.
