Chicken Pot Pie and a walk with Lucy!

It was a beautiful day and Lucy and I definitely had a walk on our minds.  So I whipped up a quick Chicken Pot Pie and hit the road.

Walking for Lucy is more about smelling the ground and checking things out but  we still got a brisk walk in while the Chicken Pot Pie was cooking up! Getting in a bit of exercise while dinner is cooking helps Lucy and I keep fit.

This Chicken Pot Pie is loaded with chicken breast and well-balanced with colorful veggies!
