The ultimate comfort food! I made this so often last winter - I had to take a break from it for a while. Watch out, you might become just addicted as I am! This recipe makes 2 pies, and they freeze wonderfully. When preparing, bake them only until the crust is just done, then cool completely. Freeze, and reheat them right from frozen. (Use care with a glass pie plate) It took approximately 45 minutes from frozen in the oven. Be sure to check the pies early!

This rating is on the gravy. Which was delicious. Ran out of time and ended up with chicken, gravy and mashed potato. Thank you for a recipe that doesn't have a lot of packaged foods.
I made this last week for company, everyone raved about it. The sauce was rich and creamy and the ww crust was a nice change. Made for pac 2011
