"I believe this recipe is from a V8 mixed vegetable magazine ad! I've made it basically the same way since the 1970's, sometimes changing out the vegetables if I have leftovers! Prep time includes time to stew the whole chicken, and time for it to cool enough to remove from the bones! It won't be as good, but you can save yourself some time and use a rotisserie chicken and canned chicken broth! Can also make this pie with leftover turkey!"

This made for a fun and tasty dinner. It was really easy, too. I used leftover Thanksgiving turkey (that had been frozen and thawed), a can of green beans and a can of corn. My family really enjoyed the casserole. I let it sit for about 10 minutes after taking it out of the oven so the sauce would thicken a bit. Thank you!
