Chicken Pot Pie Pockets


There’s a chill in the air, and the colder it gets, the more we crave hot food! These chicken pot pie pockets are the perfect mix of a home-style food with convenience.

Breakfast, lunch or dinner, in the early rays of a sun lit afternoon or the wee hours of the night at three am; I can whip up a plate of mouth-watering pasta.  As long as I have a box of noodles the possibilities are endless.  It has nothing to do with what I have in the cupboard or the fridge.  In fact, I take it as challenge the barer the kitchen is!  My secret is not only in the simplicity of the dish, but also the quality of the ingredients.  I mean come on, let’s be honest, if you are making a dish with three ingredients, you can’t skimp on the quality of what you use!

Cooking can take so much time. I feel like I can be in the kitchen for hours when I only intended to make dinner in 30 minutes, but with all the chopping and prep. But now, that has all changed. In fact my world has been turned upside down in the kitchen in the best way.  Dorot Gardens is my new best friend in the kitchen.

Herbs already chopped up in individual pockets and ready to cook with. Oh.My.Gosh! This will change everything! I love that I can make so many recipes without having to chop up the herbs. Not to mention, I have bought so many herbs that just don’t store very well and go back so quickly. With Dorot Gardens I can keep my chosen herbs in the freezer and literally pop out the pre-portioned herbs for my recipe in just seconds.
