So I had a large amount of chicken stew leftover. What do you do with leftover stew that was already made of leftovers in the first place? Because the stew was made with a leftover chicken carcass, freezer burned chicken, and some veggies that were about to have to be tossed. I know, that sounds pretty gross, but let me tell ya it was some kick ass stew!
The only thing I could think of to liven it up, since I don't think either of us wanted more stew, was to make it into individual pot pies and freeze it. They actually only stayed in the freezer for one day before I ended up tossing them in the oven, but hey - it's the thought that counts, right?
The recipe for crust that I used was a basic pastry crust. 2 cups of sifted flour and 2/3 c of shortening. But, I didn't use shortening. I used butter. I guess I should get shortening for baking purposes, since it's cheaper than butter, but butter just tastes SO much better! I forgot the salt. Next time, I'll remember to add salt to it when I sift the flour.
