The ultimate comfort food is Chicken Pot Pie. With a few convenient shortcuts like rotisserie chicken and store-bought puff pastry, they are surprisingly easy to make.  If you are cooking Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner, you are likely to have all of the necessary ingredients on hand, offering a heavenly way to eat leftover Thanksgiving turkey in place of chicken.
