Cold Weather Comfort Food – Slow Cooker Upside Down Chicken Pot Pie

It’s chilly in Tallahassee this time of year. I wish my chimney had a fire going!

There’s nothing better than warming up on a cold day with warm food that reminds you of home.  I’ve got a recipe for you that will taste as good as mom’s cooking, and you can make it easy as pie!

Put it in the Crock Pot and forget it! Head off to class, and, in just a few of hours, you’ll return to an apartment or house (hopefully a Jackson Properties one!) that smells simply delicious. Grab a bowl, put on your PJ’s and get ready to dive into a JP favorite: Upside Down Chicken Pot Pie!

We grabbed this great recipe from BettyCrocker.com.

2/3 cup milk
