chicken and chorizo pot pie

chicken pot pie 
is stick to your ribs goodness
is there anything better
on a cold afternoon
rain puddle hopping
in my case
winterizing the garden

hubster and i are getting ready for a long trip
which means we are eating solely
the pantry and freezer

i was able to put these pies together
with things i have on hand
my fave part of this recipe is

if you don't want to make  pot pie
the filling is great as a stew
leave out the flour and add a bit more broth
and make it a soup
chicken and chorizo pot pie
2 Tbs olive oil
2 chicken breasts--cut into cubes
2 chorizo links (cooked)--cut crosswise into coins
1/2 cup celery--chopped
1/2 cup onion--chopped
2 cloves garlic--chopped

1/2 cup white wine
1 1/2 cup chicken stock
