Prep Day: In a separate bowl, combine chicken, veggies, cream soup, water/broth and spices. Mix well. Pour into a freezer bag and freeze.

Serve Day: thaw completely. Right after thanksgiving I use two store bought pie crusts. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line bottom of a deep pie dish with one pie crust. Put the mix in the bottom one and put the other crust on top and pinch the sides closed. Cut 4 slits in the top of the crust. Bake in pie shell in 400 degree oven for 35 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
