"This recipe is a combination of a Southern Living Recipe and my Grandmother's recipe. I used short cuts when they worked and this is a recipe that my whole family loves. Even when older kids leave for college, they beg to take some of this with them! All ages love this and the house smells great! Great comfort food! Line your oven with foil paper; there is a lot of filling. Or you can divide it and make one pot pie for now and one for later! Originally posted at food.com. This is not diet food, this is comfort food that enfolds you in a big hug!"

This is one of my absolute favorite comfort foods and this is the pie I’ve been turning to often. Some foods just never go out of style and this is one of them that will always remain a winner. I made it again tonight from our leftover roasted chicken that we had on Sunday. It came out perfect especially now that the season is turning cold. The only thing I do different is that I add some poultry seasoning. It’s so very delicious and I LOVE IT! Thank you Breezer for sharing.
