It's almost time for turkey leftovers! I made a chicken pot pie a few weeks ago, and one of my readers asked for the recipe. It's the perfect recipe to use up those turkey left overs.
I call this a semi-homemade recipe because:
1. Sandra Lee is my idol and she's the semi-homemade Queen.
2. 30% store bought ingredients and 70% fresh ingredients. (Well, you could do it this way, but this time the percentages were reversed. Most of it is store bought.)
The recipe starts with Cream of Chicken soup. I made a double recipe, which is why I have two cans.
I make the filling first:
1 can of soup
Sprinkle in a little all purpose seasoning.
Add a touch of salt.
Open up a bag of mixed vegetable and heat 'em up.
Chop up some chicken. (Or you could use Thanksgiving turkey leftovers.)
If you like a thin pot pie filling, add a little chicken broth.
That's it for the filling. You'll notice that I don't have exact measurements. I usually just throw in whatever I have on hand. It always turns out. I have to say, it's REALLY good when you use turkey or chicken leftovers and fresh steamed veggies. But, the "open the package" recipe is pretty good too.
If you don't have a pie shield, use some tin foil to cover the egdes.
And all I have to say is... yum.
Happy cooking and Happy Thanksgiving!
