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.
