Chicken Pot Pies in a Jar are a warm, comfort food!

As the temperature changes and the cooler air drifts in that means I like to start making warm meals. These meals are good for the soul and a nice way to warm us up from the cooler air. One thing that’s hard this time of year is that my husband works as a truck driver and also in a shop so he spends a lot of time out in the cold. One thing that he loves for lunch is a good, warm soup to get him warmed up from the work day.
Another thing he loves…chicken pot pie. I made his dreams come true this past week when I combined his love of soup with the delicious chicken pot pie. I decided to make these Chicken Pot Pies in a Jar, so that he could easily warm one up for his lunch and eat up and even hold it easily in his hand if he’s working.
These are simple to make using Progresso Chicken Pot Pie Ready-To-Eat Soup. I paired this soup along with a ready made pie pastry dough to make this dish. First, I poured the soup into a pint sized mason jar. Then, I simply used the lid to the mason jar to cut out a round shape in the dough. I carefully fit the dough around the top of the jar, cut a slit in the middle and put these in the oven for about 20 minutes until they were brown on top. Now, my husband’s favorite part of the pot pie is the flaky crust that he can dip in it to give it a crunch. So, I decided to use the remaining pastry dough and cut strips to make little crust strips for him to serve with his pot pie.
It was a heavenly lunch. So heavenly in fact that he requested it again and ended up taking these several days that particular week.
