Chicken Pot Pie with Cheesy Mashed Potato Top

This chicken pot pie recipe takes a little time to prepare, but you won't regret of the outcome and is well worth and is one of the popular hearty comfort food on a cold winter season.  Even though we do not have four seasons over here, but I kind of appreciate all these seasonals food.
