Chicken or Turkey Pot Pie

READY IN: 1hr 50mins
Recipe by John DOH

Ultimate in comfort food dinner, and very easy to make. I got this as a "starter" from Emeril 5-6 years ago, and altered to represent real life circumstance of "leftovers", but the results are to die for. Leftover stuffing can also be added, and this kicks the spicing up "differently", given the variations of how you might choose to grind giblets, neck meat, etc into it, and/or use 12 grain bread for stuffing mix.

Well! After the other review I was a bit nervous of making this... Christmas has not been good to our wastelines! Never the less, I made it for 5 people for dinner last night and the only substitution was that I used a little Olive Oil in place of the cup of margarine. Everyone raved about it, and it was a real success. From the left over crust dough, my father in law cut an L and placed it on top, to show it's my first time with the recipe and it's a learner pie! It won't be the last time though. It was simple and quick and delicious. Thanks Chef!
