Bates Motel | Easy Chicken Pot Pie
Although Norma Bates (Vera Farmiga in her Emmy-nominated role) may have some less-than-admirable qualities (being a murderer, etc.), you have to admit she's extremely nurturing when it comes to her son. A boy's best friend is his mother, after all. Norma loves whipping up meals for her pride and joy, and this easy and comforting pot pie seems like just the sort of thing she would love. It's warm and delicious, and it's fast enough to work around your busy schedule of work and school (or, in Norma's case, hiding dead bodies).
