IMG_5896

What spells C-O-M-F-O-R-T to you? We all have one, two or even three (or more) palate pleasing memories that tug at our food-strings. Here’s a true comfort food classic that fills the air with newly baked, savory aromas of home.

Laura’s delectable pie is scrumptious, quick and easy; made from scratch or semi-scratch… brimming with chunks of moist chicken, crunchy carrots, peas, and fresh celery. A divinely baked comfort food classic.

Serve with a crisp salad or coleslaw. Mmmm Completely Comfortable…
