Bacon Chicken Pot Pie with Bacon Infused Crust

March 28, 2015 by Kenmore

My Grandmother came out west in a covered wagon. She loved to make pie and so do I. Basic American comfort food is what I grew up with and is a family favorite. And, who doesn’t love bacon! This American classic adds bacon to the infused crust to make it extra flaky and flavorful. This is truly the best recipe in my families world, if not the entire planet!
