These individual meat pies are delicious and have been making them as a kid, but there is one problem, these are not Pot Pies....Please allow me to explain... These are delicious but they are NOT Chicken Pot Pies, they are chicken pies or meat pies.....allow me to explain....I was born and raised in Pennsylvania Dutch country, right along side of the Amish and Mennonites....they were all fantastic artists of comfort food and still are.... Chicken Pot Pie was one of their signature dishes, which came from the Pennsylvania Dutch words, bot boi or Pot Pie, which meant a Chicken Stew with homemade PA Dutch square noodles in it, a thick gravy with chicken and veggies in it. So, I'm noticing all over the internet, all the young chefs are calling their chicken Meat Pies, Pot Pies and they are not....you all are taking a culture and literally ignoring the original meaning....so I ask you to google what I'm saying and understand, I mean no insult what-so-ever, but please don't take away from a culture that already made pot pie a comfort food. Thank you.

Made this using leftover turkey. Left out the collards (only 'cause I didn't have any in the frig). Used frozen peas. Yummy!

Absolutely delicious. We usually make another MSL chicken potpie recipe and thought that it was good, but this is our new favorite. The collated greens add lovely color and nutrition but are very mild. I splurged and bought the really expensive puff pastry and that put these over the top. We doubled the recipe and used 2 small pie dishes, worked out great. Can't wait to enjoy the leftovers tonight.
