Grandma Paramore’s Chicken Pot Pie

I was craving some chicken pot pie. It has been cooler in Seattle this week, so I thought it would be the perfect time to make it. It is a pretty easy dish to make, especially as you can use frozen and canned veggies. I used a frozen peas and diced carrots mix and canned sweet corn.
