DIRECTIONS

  • Peel and cube potatoes and set to boil in slightly salted water to make mashed potatoes.
  • Take leftover chicken or turkey and cut into 1" cubes, add to casserole dish.
  • Measure out veggies, frozen or fresh and mix in with chicken/turkey.
  • Add 1.5 cans of cream of chicken soup. I used whatever it took to coat the chicken and veggies. This is the stage I season at so add what you think would taste good ;) If it seems too thick you can add a little water or milk, but remember that heating it will also make it thinner.
  • When potatoes are soft and water is slightly cloudy remove from heat and drain. Mash the potatoes with a mixer or by hand, adding butter or plain yogurt and the remaining cream of chicken soup. If potatoes are too stiff, add milk, but you don't want them to be runny. You will also want to salt and pepper to taste.
  • Pour mashed potatoes over the chicken and veggie mix. I usually top it with a couple shakes of paprika for color.
  • Bake covered at 450 for 30 minutes or until the filling starts to bubble up around the mashed potatoes.
  • Remove from oven and let set for at least 5 minutes, the inside of that potpie will be like molten lava!
  • Enjoy! Makes great next day lunch.
