EASY POTPIE

After making a chicken dinner for my husband and me, I had a cup of leftover gravy and about 12 ounces of leftover chicken meat. What to do for dinner the next day? Easy. I pulled out a 15 ounce can of no-salt-added Veg-All and a roll of frozen puff pastry. A half cup of milk thinned my gravy to make 12 ounces of sauce and I had all I needed.  (but if you don’t have gravy, a can of condensed cream of chicken soup works well, too.)

Vary or season to your own tastes. Here’s how I put my easy potpie together:
Preheat oven to 400°.

Combine drained vegetables with shredded cooked chicken in a baking dish. Preheat oven to 400°
