Winchester Brothers Pie Shop: Men of Leftovers

Men of Leftovers Pie from Winchestser Brothers Pie Shop - Supernatural Inspired Recipe

This recipe is as forgiving as Castiel discovering the Winchesters just ended the damn world again. Want to use up more chicken? Go for it. Don’t have any leftover potatoes?
