Semi-Homemade Chicken Pot Pie Recipie

It has taken me a few years to perfect this recipe.  My grandmother makes Chicken Pot Pie from scratch but this is my semi-home made Chicken or Turkey Pot Pie Recipe.  I am posting to assist with all of your left over Turkey from Thanksgiving.  This is the perfect recipe to prepare the morning of or day before.  This is a perfect recipe for a sick or ill friend you are providing dinner for.  AND did I mention it is really inexpensive.  

1 can of Cream of Chicken Soup
1 table spoon of sour cream
Pepper to taste
1 bag of steam fresh mixed vetab les.
1 box of Pillsbury pie crust (2 pie crusts needed) (you can use the pie crusts in disposable pie pans but the shells are not very deep so you will need 2 sets of pie shells)
1lb of cooked chicken or turkey.
Non stick spray

1.  Prepare chicken to your taste. Left over chicken and Turkey is PERFECT.  I bake mine in the oven until done.  At the same time steam your veggies in the Microwave. 
2.  Shred chicken and add to a bowl with steamed veggies, 1 tablespoon of sour cream and pepper.  Mix all ingredients well. 

3.  Lay your 1 pie crust in a glass (non stick spray ) pie pan, and fill your pot pie mixture.  Top your pot pie with the 2nd pie shell.  Pinch the edges .  Poke a few fork holes in the top of the pie. (at this point your can cover you pie in foil and refrigerate, or FREEZE your pie to eat at a later time.  I have never waited longer than 5 days after freezing or 24 hours after refrigerating.) 
4.  Bake at 350degrees until pie shell is golden brown, Usually about 25-35 minutes of cook time.  

No one has to know it wasn’t from scratch.  
Let me know if you make this and what you think.
