We are all looking for ways to stretch our grocery dollars these days and still make delicious meals for our families. In this series The Paula Deen Test Kitchen will share a new leftover recipe with you each week. Each recipe starts with the leftovers from one of Paula’s simple and classic dinner entrees. With those dinner leftovers, a few inexpensive fresh ingredients and items from your pantry we created a simple recipe sure to delight your belly and not break the bank.
This week is a recipe the kids will love and love to help make. Leftover Lemon Pepper and Rosemary Roasted Chicken from dinner becomes Hurry Up Chicken Pot Pie for lunch!

1 cup milk
1 stick melted butter
