Turkey Pot Pie

This is a wonderful way to turn Thanksgiving leftovers into something special. I used my own Best Pie Crust recipe posted on JAP. Chicken can be used instead of turkey with little difference in taste. We like to eat this with the cranberry gelatin side dish I make and apple cider. Please let me know how your family enjoys this dish. :)
