I made this the other day but was lazy and substituted the biscuit mix with the premade biscuit rounds.

Paula, my mother used to do the same thing with her left over chicken, and sometimes roast beef as well.  I remember all the fresh vegetables out of our garden that she filled the pot pie with along with the chicken.  It seems these days to many people don’t think about all the ways to make food stretch to other meals.  Thanks for bringing back memories.
