Classic Pot Pie

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Denise in da Kitchen

A good, old-fashioned comfort meal! I believe this recipe came from the Pillsbury Refrigerated Pie Crust package, but don't let that fool you. It's the best pot pie I have ever tasted and a great way to use up left-over chicken or turkey.

This was a great recipe. I made the filling ahead of time and then just poured into the crust on a busy night. Turned out very well!
