A couple of weeks ago we went hiking on Saturday, and we had cranberry and turkey breast sandwiches (truly delicious, a family favorite after Thanksgiving). I had lots of turkey leftover, so I made a turkey pot pie, but this is a traditional chicken pot pie recipe (you can use chicken or turkey, whatever you happen to have leftover). It was my first try in a long time to make gluten free pie crust and it was a huge success. The crust turned out light and flaky and incredibly delicious. However, gluten free pie crusts are a very tender and can be a little difficult to work with – but this one is worth it. If you don’t need to make it gluten free, just use two prepared 9-inch pie crusts. Or, if you’re short on time, there are prepared gluten free pie crusts you could use as well. This recipe is incredibly tasty and full of flavor – my husband and I both loved it.
