Roast chicken is one of my favourite meals. But, I invariably end up with leftover chicken that I cannot possible waste.

This chicken pot pie is a great way to use up leftover  chicken. Especially when there is not enough chicken to make another full chicken meal.

If you do not have leftover vegetables, using fresh or frozen is perfectly fine. Simple cook it when making the filling.

This is also an awesome option for freezing. Just cool after it is cooked and freeze in a labelled, freezer safe container.
