This is a dish which I made out of the ingredients I had at home. I had not planned to make it and this morning when I got up I hadn’t yet decided what to prepare with the leftovers. I was thinking of the classical curry with vegetables and rice but then two of my children don’t like curry so I thought of making it as a savory cake, which I have made many time and is delicious. I usually make leftover chicken like this and it is very good but it is a side dish. I then thought of making a pie with puff pastry or to make something new. I decided to try the latter. I hope we’ll like it and you’ll like it as well, if you every try it.

The result, I must say, was more than I expected. My children like eating only the breast and there were only a few slices left. The rest was thighs and wings and they did not complain about that, so I must say it was excellent.

    Checked out some shepherd’s pies and it does have a similarity.

  4. […] This is a wonderful recipe to make if you have leftover turkey from your Thanksgiving dinner.  At the beginning of blogging when I didn’t even know about shepherd’s pie, I made a similar recipe, which you can find here. […]
