Chicken Pot Pie for Dinner

Last night I was really craving a homemade chicken pot pie. I decided to kind of make one up as I went along. I used my normal pie crust recipe for a double crust, and then just played it by ear on the chicken filling. I used two pints of my home canned chicken, about a cup of frozen mixed veggies, one can of hominy, & two cans of cream of chicken soup. I put the chicken into a sauce pot just to heat up, then added the veggies, and soup. I poured that all into my crust lined pie plate, then put the top crust on and sealed the edges. I cut 4 slits in the top for steam vents. I baked it at 425 degrees for 40 minutes (or just until the crust is golden brown).

This pie was so delicious! The flaky crust was amazing with the mix of chicken and veggies! I am definitely having leftovers for lunch today!

(Sorry I don't have a picture, we were pretty hungry when it was ready to eat and I didn't think about grabbing the camera).
