The birds are singing and the leaves are swinging… the Fall Season is right around the corner, and I could not be more excited! Therefore, I decided to get a head start by making delicious Individual Chicken Pot Pies with Olive Oil Biscuits! It was such a simple dinner that fed my whole family with happy stomachs.
Honestly though, my mom said she would make this year round, especially since it was so easy to make and fed so many people! Best part… there is no guilt over here! This chicken pot pie has ONLY wholesome ingredients, NO butter NOR cornstarch, and tastes like pure deliciousness!
I made my ‘famous’ olive oil biscuits from scratch, because anytime that I have a good reason to make these biscuits… I am all ears!! Although I want to say that it would not taste the same without my olive oil biscuits, you are ALWAYS more than welcome to just buy pre-made biscuits or make your own favorite biscuit recipe! And have fun with it by cutting the biscuits into all sorts of shapes and sizes.
Encouraging quote of the day stems from my passion to travel and to seek the good out of everyone situation… even when it seems like there is no light to be found…
“Hard times are a passport that gives you permission to go places you wouldn’t get to any other way.” – Levi Lusko
Happiness is truly as simple as putting our faith and trust in Jesus Christ our Savior. We are never promised a life of easement nor a life of luxury, but with God by are side we are given the ability to be content in whatever situation we are facing today. You can take each moment with strength, knowing that your faith in God will grow stronger through each trial, that your faith can shine brighter than before through this rough patch, and that God is using you for a purpose through each moment.
I will have to admit that I preferred the individual pot pies over making one large chicken pot pie, because they are just SO ADORABLE! The individual pot pies were such crowd pleasers… I mean each person in my family was reaching for the individual-sized ones faster than I could even say ‘they’re ready.’
Time to impress the fam and friends… let’s grab our aprons and start cooking!
