Dressing up a compassion meal

I had to make a chicken pot pie for a couple in our Life Groups class who just had a baby, so I made enough for three (yes, 3!) 9 x 13 pans. One for them, one for us (hubby's comfort food), and one to freeze. I'll be giving this one to another friend to keep in her freezer until she wants it.
See, if you compliment my cooking, you reap the rewards! LOL.
(Chicken pot pie is my usual meal I take whenever someone's sick, or otherwise needs a meal).
Ever see the old Reba show, perhaps re-runs, where Barbara Jean comes over with a pie for Reba. She called it "pitty pie". I'm thinking of changing the name from compassion meal, to pitty pie. LOL! maybe not.
I don't have a set recipe for this so I can't give you specifics, but this is more of a "did you know you could do this to dress it up" kind of post anyway. I'm sure you either have, or can find a good recipe for the "guts" of the pot pie.

Did you get those little "chicken footprints" I cut out of the crust? LOL

I use a chicken cookie cutter - to let them know what they're getting in case they've never received a meal from me before - LOL Ok, it's a rooster, but you get the idea. But don't discard those cut-outs! I bake them and then use them as the topper, for the cut-out on the crust. Who doesn't like pie crust to nibble on?

Well, there you have it. Maybe you've gotten some ideas on dressing it up? I hope so. Gee, I hope you don't think this post was lame.... sigh
