Chicken Pot Pie or Turkey Pot Pie - your choice - both are delicious and each is a favorite restaurant recipe.
You can serve it as a pie or serve it over biscuits or even pasta.
We have done so at the restaurant and the guests love all these variations. It always sells out.
You can also substitute diced potatoes and diced carrots in place of the mushrooms and red peppers and your pot pie will still be fabulous.
This is truly a comfort food.

What I loved about the Pot Pie Recipe:
The ingredients are simple and the recipe is easy, but most of all it is delicious!
Another great thing about it is how much it makes. It is a very large batch which you can freeze in smaller quantities to take out later and put in a fresh pie shell and bake. Or as we did, you can make homemade pies and put them in the freezer to take out and enjoy a ready made, homemade, dinner at any time!
Speaking as a mother I have one last thought ...even though the recipe is excellent as it is, if you have children you know they can sometimes be finicky so you can use ingredients your family prefers such as carrots, peas, and/or green beans and the pot pie is still wonderful.
To sum it up I'd say it's delicious, easy and convenient for the busy lives most of us lead these days. ENJOY!
Preparation time: 45 minutes. Serves 6-8 depending on desired portion size.
