Scrumptious buffalo chicken dinner made into individual pot pies. Little pots stuffed with a delicious mixture of shredded chicken, cauliflower, celery, creamy buffalo sauce mixture and baked with flaky pastry on top.
Buffalo Chicken Pot Pie
So it just hit me this week that I’ve been blogging here for 5 years! Wow…5 years! It was actually 5 years on February 11th but I totally forgot. Shhh, noone tell my blog or I have a hissy fit coming. I can’t believe how fast time is flying by. Five years ago, my baby was only 1, I was still working as a paralegal, I wasn’t even thinking about grad school yet. So many things were different. Life changes so fast and so unexpectedly. I feel lucky that it’s been mostly for the good.
So I noticed that I missed my anniversary because I was making these buffalo chicken pot pies and I realized that I haven’t made a buffalo chicken recipe in a very long time. I was looking over all my buffalo recipes and they are old and a little embarrassing. The photos are a little embarrassing actually. Three of my most favorite recipes were done in my first year of blogging. Let’s just say, the pictures were taken with my little broken point-and-shoot camera.
After looking at my old photos, I decided that it was time to make all those tasty treats again. What I didn’t expect was to make so many in one day. I was having a very good light day, it was that perfect combination of slight overcast with plenty of light. Love those days. So I remade and re-shot Buffalo Chicken Nachos, Buffalo Chicken Wrap, and Buffalo Chicken Salad…all in one day. It was a perfect day filled with buffalo chicken goodies.
