With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I thought I would share this super simple chicken pot pie recipe Vera and I made the other day. We used canned chicken but you can substitute leftover turkey from your thanksgiving feast instead.
My sous chef loves to help me in the kitchen. She helped me gather the necessary supplies including a shallow baking dish (you can use a pie plate), a spatula for mixing, a can opener and a bowl to mix up the ingredients.
Next, we gathered the ingredients --
1. Refrigerated pie crust
2. Cream of Chicken Soup
3. 1 bag of mixed vegetables
4. I can of all white meat chicken in water
**Alternately you can use 1 1/2 cups shredded leftover turkey
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Then, drain the chicken and place in the mixing bowl along with the mixed vegetables and can of chicken soup. Place the first, of the 2, refrigerated pie crusts in the greased, shallow baking dish.
|Pour the mixture into the pie crust.|
|Smooth the mixture evenly with in the pie crust.|
|Unroll and place the other refrigerated pie crust on top.|
|Make sure to go around the edge, pinching the sides closed.|
|Carefully make a few slits on top in a pattern of your choice.|
Once you have filled your pie crust and pinched the edges shut, you can place your pot pie in a pre-heated oven (350 degrees) for 30 minutes. The crust should come out golden brown. You may choose to allow it to rest for a few minutes to set-up before serving.
We like to serve our pot pies with a side salad, fruit and, if I am feeling generous, bread & butter. It makes a delicious meal to use up leftover turkey or a great meal to take to a friend. It's great for a busy night because it takes no time to prep or you can prep ahead and freeze.
Do you like pot pie? How do you use up your turkey leftovers? Do you have any little sous chefs at your house? Leave a comment below and let me know. I love hearing from you!
