Friday Food Fight – Chicken Pot Pie

For dinner one night, while hubby was away, I made a lovely roasted chicken for Meg, mum, her hubby and I! 

 Now usually if I have left overs I’ll make some chicken soup, but with the weather getting warm I wasn’t really in the mood for soup!

So… instead I decided to make a chicken pot pie!  I hadn’t made one in ages, but I have to say for a quick fix it turned out pretty good!

First I made a roux and then added some of the chicken drippings to make a lovely gravy!

Once I’d added a few bits and bobs and the gravy thickened a bit I mixed in some of the left over chicken and vegetables and poured it into a Pyrex dish!

I wasn’t sure what I was going to do for the topping and then I spotted them…

Pillsbury croissant rolls!!!

Woo Hoo!

So I layered the top of the yummy chicken pot pie mixture with those bad boys and put the whole thing in the oven until it turned a nice golden brown!

The end result was absolutely yummy!

So what are some fab recipes you make with your left overs?
