The leftover Thanksgiving turkey may be gone, but you may be cooking one for Christmas. Perhaps, you need a do ahead dish that can be prepared from skinless, boneless chicken or from a rotisserie chicken. I found a recipe for turkey pot pie with corn bread crust in an issue of Food and Wine Magazine a long time ago. I use it with leftover holiday turkey or I prepare skinless, boneless chicken breast and create a one dish meal.
No exotic ingredients here. I have substituted fresh carrots with frozen peas and carrots mix. When I made this last week, I didn't have a baking potato so I substituted a yam and it gave the dish a nice, delicate sweet flavor. Also, my husband dislikes lima beans, therefore, that's the reason for using frozen peas. It's another wonderful dish during this hectic season and does well if prepared ahead.
