Chicken Pot Pie

It's September, which typically means pumpkins and apples. But September is also National Chicken Month and September 23 is Pot Pie Day (as designated by the pot pie and frozen food company Marie Callender's).

We just couldn't refrain from celebrating—especially when we remembered one of our all-time favorites, Chicken Pot Pie. This recipe includes a couple of short cuts, refrigerated pie dough and chopped cooked chicken (a rotisserie chicken works just great). Making it will take a bit more time than popping a frozen one in the oven, but we figured Marie wouldn't mind, just this once.
