Chicken Bacon and Leek Pot Pie/Casserole

Recipe by JoyfulCook

Great comfort food! This is a delicious filling for a pot pie or served as a casserole, the flavours of the bacon and leek especially gives this chicken dish a lovely flavour and the herbs finish it off beautifully. Easy to prepare and can be frozen

I made this last night for hubby and I. What a treat! I was a bit unsure of the measurements (since I'm in the USA), but I guessed and it was a success! The only thing I left out was the mushrooms (I don't care for them much). I used some left-over chicken breasts and I actually made a home-made pastry crust. It worked out well. Loved all the flavors in it (especially the bacon). This is a delicious "pot pie". Thanks for posting your recipe.
