Chicken Pot Pie

What do you do with leftovers?

The eternal question of the home cook, at least one who can't stand to toss food or perpetually over estimates how much her family will eat.

I just made this up today, and it turned out delicious.

I took the leftovers from our roast chicken dinner, made in the crockpot so it had a lot of nice gravy. Warmed up the gravy, stripped the carcass and tossed the chicken into the gravy with a handful of mixed vegetables. After that I put it into a casserole dish and topped with puff pastry, baked for 20 minutes at 400 degrees and voila!

Served with a nice salad and some leftover squash, it made for a delicious supper that wasn't a repeat.
