Anybody Recognize this Chicken Pot Pie?

LynnLovesFood70 | Feb 2, 201601:29 PM    

I have been making the most delicious chicken pot pie for 15 years. Unfortunately, I don't make it often enough to have memorized the recipe, and we are in the process of moving, so my personal cookbooks are packed somewhere in a mountain of boxes.

I believe it originally came from a Southern Living yearly book.
What I know is this: it has fresh potatoes, fresh carrots, fresh celery, and fresh onion. No peas. Chicken breasts are simmered in an herbed broth, this broth is then combined with light cream to form the sauce. This filing is baked a double crusted pie.

But I don't remember what herbs are used to simmer the chicken! Or some of the proportions for the sauce.

I want this to taste the way it did when my kids were growing up, the way they remember it, as they will be my dinner guests.

Does anyone know where I could find this recipe? I would be so grateful for the help!

Obviously I Googled Southern Living chicken pot pie. But there are dozens upon dozens to slog through so I thought my fellow Chowhounders may be able to help.
