Chicken or Turkey Pot Pie Recipe

I decided to post this recipe because many Families have turkey or chicken for Easter Dinner. I used chicken for this recipe, but I am sure turkey would be just as good. This Chicken or Turkey Pot Pie Recipe is a simple recipe, because it calls for frozen vegetables.  I am sure you could use fresh if you wanted to, but it would involve more prep time. Instead of using mixed vegetables I used frozen soup vegetables because the potatoes and onions are already in the mixture. If you have never made your own pot pie before, give this simple recipe a try; you and your family will love it! Enjoy

It is so easy to go into the store and buy Banquet Pot Pies I am ashamed to admit I had never made one until I ran across this recipe. The ingredients looked like a good combination of flavors and I had the chicken on hand so I thought I would give it a try. If you use a store bought crust there is very little prep time; my wife just loved it. This came out so good I am looking forward to making a turkey pot pie with the Thanksgiving leftovers. Enjoy
