Chicken Pot Pie Boats

Serves: 8

Make cuts in the chicken breast just right and it becomes a bowl. Add pot pie filling and now you have individual healthier version of a chicken pot pie.

Pair it Roasted Peppers and Asparagus and Simple Green Salad and you have a full meal

The filling will make 8 chicken but I only made six in this recipe.

My little chef helper Weston helped me with this one. Teach them young to have fun in the kitchen and they will cook forever.
