One-bowl meals is one of the greatest pleasures of life after a tiring day at work. There is nothing like curling up on the couch in front of the television with a bowl of something warm and delicious. From salads to steaming soups to chicken pot pie, one-bowl meals are pretty easy to make and above all a healthy alternative to ordering for a box of pizza.

In a bowl, toss together the chopped onion, jalapeno, pepper and garlic cloves along with a drizzle of olive oil, salt and pepper. This is the salsa mixture.Arrange this on the side of the chicken in same baking tray and roast both for 40 minutes.
Now remove the chicken and slice it into small bite-size chunks. In a blender, coarsely grind the salsa mixture along with the fresh parsley and honey.
Prepare the base for the pot pie.
Heat a medium-sized pot over medium flame. Add butter, once its melted sprinkle the flour and stir for a minute or two to remove the raw taster.

Check the seasoning at this point.
