  • Divide Pastry Dough into six portions. Roll each portion into a 6-inch circle. Place pastry circles on top of filling. Turn under edges of pastry; crimp edges as desired. Using a sharp knife, cut a few slits or a small cutout in each pastry top to allow steam to escape.

  • Place pot pies in a baking pan and freeze until firm. Cover pot pies with plastic wrap or foil. Place in a resealable freezer bag or a freezer container. Seal and freeze for up to 3 months.

  • To serve, thaw in the refrigerator overnight. Preheat oven to 425°F. Remove plastic wrap or foil. Place pot pies on a foil-lined baking sheet. Bake about 35 minutes or until golden and bubbly.

*Tip:

To vary the flavor, replace thyme with the same amount of snipped fresh dill or tarragon, or use 2 1/2 teaspoons Asian chili sauce (Sriracha sauce), shredded lemon peel, smoked paprika, or curry powder for the thyme.

I must agree, without the recipe for the Cheesy Sauce or the Shredded Chicken, it won't work for me. At least put a link to the 2 required items in the recipe.
