97. Herb-basted Chicken Pot Pie from Gables Diner

Now we all know pot pies can go terribly, terribly wrong. Sometimes the dough is too dry or rubbery and sometimes the creamy innards remind us more of... well, we'll just say it--semen, instead of sauce. But not on Gables Diner's version. Puncture the flakey, not too dense pastry crust and allow a small puff of steam to escape, then plunge a fork down to find mushrooms, peas, pearl onions, bits of carrot, and squares of honest-to-goodness white meat chicken in a light, perfectly complementary velouté. It almost makes you wish for more chilly days... Nah.
