Chicken pot pie is the perfect dish to use up leftover chicken after cooking an entire bird. It's such a great way to reinvent leftovers, in fact, that many families have the pie dish quite regularly. Although chicken pot pie is indeed delicious, sometimes it needs to be revamped ever so slightly, just to keep things interesting. That's exactly what the recipe that follows does.
It takes out the pie crust completely, making it an ideal dish for those who don't want to mess with crust. In its place phyllo dough is placed just over top of the filling before everything gets baked to golden perfection in the oven. For those that want to switch it up even more, puff pastry can be used. Because it actually puffs (unlike phyllo dough, which doesn't), it's an effective balance for those who want a little heft to their pie.
