CHICKEN POT PIE VARIATION 1
The essence of comfort food is a good recipe for Chicken pot pie. For a great way to use leftovers and get 2 meals out of one soup mix, prepare the Colorado Campfire chicken stew per directions on the package.
Have soup for supper for 2 to 3, and save the remainder.
Refrigerate overnight. Use Pillsbury refrigerator pie crust, two round crusts in each box.
Place first crust at bottom of pie pan.
Fill with leftover soup, now nice and thick from refrigeration.
Top with second sheet of pie crust and bake for 30 to 35 minutes at 350 degrees.
CHICKEN POT PIE VARIATION 2
Put the left over thick soup into an 8 x 8 inch pyrex pan and bake for 20 minutes in 350 degree oven.
Remove from oven, top with pop-open refrigerator biscuits (such as Pillsbury Grand biscuits) and bake for 12 to 15 minutes longer until the biscuits are golden.
