Although this uses leftover chicken, I serve it sometimes as a special company dinner. Actually, my husband may enjoy it more than the original roasted bird with all the fixings! -Marilyn Hockey, Lisle, Ontario

"This is one of my favorite recipes, I always double it & use an 8x11 glass dish. Don't be afraid of the dough, it really is easy to roll out & patch up if it gets a hole while assembling. Use chicken broth and a whole bag of mixed veggies or just peas & carrots. When I use the mixed veggies, I like the added corn & Lima beans-no one would eat a Lima bean in my house until this recipe. The taste is so home style & comforting..we love it. I must have made it 100 times...and will probably make it 100 more."

"There's no better comfort food out there in my opinion but this recipe was great! I also use chicken broth if I have it on hand and will change out the vegetables depending on what the family feels like."

"I have made this MANY times but I do change a couple of things: I don't add garlic as I did not like the taste in this dish, I use chicken broth instead of water in the filling mixture, and I use a whole small bag of mixed vegetables. Other than that - it is delicious. The crust is always flaky and very tender and quite forgiving. It doesn't have to be "perfect" and it just adds a wonderful texture to the pie."

"The best potpie ever! The crust is a lot of work, but completely worth it! Even my 3-year old, who is not particularly fond of anything asks specifically for this dish!"
