Chicken pie makes me think of rainy days, sweaters, and curling up with Mom on the couch to watch Jeopardy. This is such a homey, simple dish, and what I love about it is that you can add whatever leftovers you like to it: peas, carrots, kale, sausage, cheese—odds and ends of all kinds. This isn't a super-rich chicken pot pie where the liquid inside the pie is a thick béchamel. This pie strikes a nice balance, and the buttermilk biscuit crust adds the perfect tang to every bite.
