Favorite Family Recipe Chicken Pot Pie



Here's a polaroid  ;-)  of me many years ago.  My family enjoyed riding horses and competing in rodeos.  Most of my favorite childhood memories include horses and the wonderful people we met at riding clubs, trail rides and rodeos.  The recipe I'm sharing today comes from a very dear family friend and neighbor, Beatrice Mason.




You may want to visit these amazing bloggers who are sharing favorite family recipes, too!



Mrs. Mason and her husband lived about a mile from our farm.  We were allowed to ride our horses around the dirt road and visit them.  She would step out on her porch and make us feel welcome, usually offering a snack or drink of some kind!  At pot luck dinners, her dishes were always quite the hit!  Not long after my wedding, I wrote to Mrs. Mason and asked her for her Chicken Pot Pie recipe.  She wrote me back the sweetest letter that I still cherish. 

Here is her recipe for Chicken Pot Pie in her handwriting. 


I hope you have time to give it a try!  What is your favorite family recipe?
