Chicken, Mushroom and Asparagus Pie

This Easy Chicken and Mushroom Pie is my new favourite! So quick, simple and healthy but super delicious. 

It's a cheap dinner idea and great way to use up leftover roast chicken (and so good that you can take out that extra whole step of cooking chicken)

This is a great recipe for the kids and the whole family you enjoy, and maybe even a good one if you have a roast chicken left overs!
