Pot pie is one of my favorite dishes when I go to a restaurant and if it is on the menu.:) Pot pie is a baked meat pie, covered with pastry dough. A variety of meat can be used for the filling. I used pork belly and Turkey for the filling and puff pastry for the top crust. This pot pie is perfect for a hearty dinner. I love pork belly, so I added it and it adds a different texture to the pot pie. If you do not eat or like pork, do not use it . Still, it's yummy. Instead of chicken and pork belly, you can use only vegetables. It is yummy too. Also, You can choose to bake it in one big bowl or bake it individual smaller baking bowl for each serving.
For Pot-pie you need filling and the top crust.
