How does fast food make such compelling and comforting food? The answer, it turns out, can be found right in your own kitchen anytime you want. Copycat KFC® Pot Pie is just one example, though you’d be hard-pressed to find a better homecooked comfort food. The crust is a buttery, crispy puff pastry baked golden-brown, with a bubbling mixture of chicken, potatoes, and carrots for that classic, savory pot-pie-feeling. The sauce is creamy and meaty, ready to wrap a warm blanket of flavor around your tastebuds. Better just skip the drive-thru and whip up a Copycat KFC Pot Pie or two (or six) instead!
