“This is an easy way to make a chicken potpie-like dish minus the crust. Sauteed chicken breast is served over smashed baby red potatoes and is then covered with a cream sauce with carrots and peas added to it. Bake some biscuits to go along with this dish and you have comfort food to please everyone in your family.”
