Old-Fashioned Chicken Potpie Recipe

Old-Fashioned Chicken Potpie Recipe

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

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup butter

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/2 cups water

  • 1-2/3 cups all-purpose flour
