Chicken or Turkey Pot Pie

First I want to share and point everyone in the direction of my Recipe Index, even though my blog is still fairly new, I now have over 160 recipes archived to help you find all kinds of inspiration! Take a look and make something new today!

No one can resist the fresh taste of a Homemade Pot Pie. This pie is no difference, left-over chicken, left-over turkey or buy a fresh Rotisserie Chicken any kind of meat is just perfect for a Homemade Pot Pie. We even use this crust for my grandma's Hamburger Pie recipe and it tastes out-of-this world!

Chicken or Turkey Pot Pie
by Tina Hudgens

1 cup Cream of Celery Soup
1 cup Cream of Chicken Soup (or Cream of Mushroom for Turkey Pot Pie)
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp granulated garlic
1 tsp poultry seasoning
1 tsp pepper

Mix all together with a whisk.

2 cups frozen Mixed Vegetables
1 cup frozen peas (if they aren't included already in your mixed veggies)
2 cups diced potatoes (frozen hash brown potatoes work perfect)
24 oz diced cooked chicken (from a can chicken, left over turkey, a grocery store rotisserie chicken, it all works)

Add all the above ingredients to the soup mixture and stir well. Add this entire mixture into your favorite store bought pie crust. (use the frozen pre-made pie crust, use the Pillsbury roll out if you want a top and bottom or make your own homemade pie crust) Bake at 350 for 45 minutes or until crust is golden brown.

Easy Homemade Pie Crust
from my Mother-in-Law Charlotte 

2 cups flour
1 cup Butter Flavor Shortening
1/2 cup COLD water
pinch of salt

This recipe will make enough for a top and bottom pie crust for a normal size pie tin.

Mix flour, shortening and salt with a pastry knife (or a fork if you don't have one). Once it's all mixed together then add COLD water and continue mixing. Cut into half and roll out one at a time onto a flour surface. Roll until you get your desired shape (ie: round for a pie tin).

This pie recipe works great for this Hamburger Pie, Chicken or Turkey Pot Pie and also is wonderful for dessert pies too!
