Sundays growing up we used to go to my Mimi & Pop’s for lunch and this is one of my fav recipes. The smell of it alone takes me back to her kitchen, the clear vinyl floor covering, the wooden table my Pop made that is now in my kitchen, food = love.  So from my Mimi to you I share her yummy chicken pie.
