Thanksgiving is coming soon and that means leftovers! There are so many different ways to cook the yummy turkey, gravy, and vegetable leftovers, but this Chicken Pot Pie recipe leads the list in my family!
How sad would it be to only make this once a year though? And what about the fact that the recipe is called Chicken Pot Pie instead of Turkey Pot Pie? Well that's because in our house this recipe is made about once or twice a month all fall and winter long!
Sometimes we make it with all brand new food by just cooking up some fresh chicken, using a can or package of gravy, and buying a bag of frozen mixed vegetables. But my favorite way takes a few weeks to prepare for because it uses leftovers of course! Every time we have some vegetables or chicken left over from dinner that is not quite enough to use for anything else, instead of throwing it away I put the small amount into a snack baggie which then goes into a larger freezer bag to be saved until I have enough ingredients to make this awesome pot pie! Believe it or not I even freeze leftover gravy! Nothing gets wasted in this household!
This is such a simple recipe it can be prepared in literally under 20 minutes! Hope you enjoy it :-)
