Individual Chicken Pot PiesNow that the presents have been opened and the ball has dropped, there’s only one thing left: polishing off those remaining leftovers. All of the ingredients clogging your fridge — the stalks of celery, mounds of carrots and leftover meat — need an exit plan, and we’ve got one.

Ina Garten fixes the quintessential Chicken Pot Pie, complete with a homemade pastry recipe. For those with little time to spare, Sunny Anderson’s Easy Chicken Pot Pie reaches the table in just about 40 minutes.

Ellie Krieger’s Chicken and Biscuit Pot Pie is crowned with a homemade biscuit crust, and Giada’s Mini Chicken and Broccoli Pot Pies are perfect for party passing.

Or put the pie crust to the side with Food Network Magazine’s deconstructed Chicken Potpie Soup.
