Last year we marked the hundred day countdown to Best of Phoenix by sharing some of our favorite food folks' "Personal Best" lists. This year we're bringing back our list of 100 Favorite Dishes.

|It's pretty much a perfect pot pie.|
67. Chicken Pot Pie from The Duce

Coming from a place like The Duce, which serves as a bar, restaurant, boxing gym, yoga studio, boutique clothing shop, karaoke lounge, and more, you wouldn't expect your pie options from the outdoor food trailer to be limited to just one flavor, would you? Of course not! You have your fruit and cream sweet pies, but the savory chicken pot pie is the real winner here.
With a rich, creamy sauce smothering chucks of tender chicken and fresh, crunchy veggies, the pot pie is everything it should be. However, the best part of the whole thing is the intensely buttery and flaky pie crust that surrounds it-- definitely one of the best crusts in town. Served up in a mason jar, this pot pie's delivery method is as cute (although very, very hot) as the rest of The Duce.
Just be sure to have a goofy alias prepared when you order because they will ask and, if you're caught off guard easily, you might end up picking your food up as "Little Bunny Foo Foo." Don't be that guy.
