Directions – How To Make Pot Pie Filling

- Place remaining pastry over chicken mixture. Trim edges of pie pastry, seal and crimp edges. Cut slits into top of pastry .

Substitutions For White Wine
Apple juice or grape juice can be substituted for the white wine. Our friends at The Kitchen have provided a list of substitutes for white wine depending upon the use of the white wine. White wine substitutes to deglaze a pan may be different than a substitute as an ingredient; I usually use chicken broth for both.
Turkey Leftovers & Mini Pie Pans
This chicken pot pie recipe can be easily turned into a turkey pot pie with turkey leftovers. While this recipe makes a full size pot pie a little creativity with the pot pie can be turned into four pot pies using mini pie pans.
