I adapted this recipe from a cookbook that I have had for many years. It's an excellent way to use up leftover chicken. Even though it takes a bit of time to prepare, everyone agrees it's well worth it. —Bonnie Jean Lintick, Kathryn, Alberta

"Why would you use tarragon in a chicken pot pie? Ewww!"

"Forgot to add that it was 1/4 tsp of celery seed and I also added garlic powder about a tsp."

"This is the best pot pie recipe we have found so far. I highly doubt we will look for another at this point. The only thing I would change is to double up on the rue. It is pretty good for the first initial meal. But if you have leftovers, as we did, it is a bit dry after reheating. Another note, I had no tarragon so I used celery seed in its place."
