Kotopita tou Kynigou , which means Hunter’s Pie, is an easy pie recipe made with leftovers from pollo cacciatore.
When I made my Baklavas Tart, I had four leftover phyllo sheets and lots of leftover smaller pieces. Usually, when I have leftover phyllo I shred it into smaller pieces and make this easy Tyropita (the second recipe).
However, on that day I also had some leftover Pollo alla Cacciatora (Hunter’s Chicken Stew) which was not enough for both of us, so I used the leftover chicken and leftover phyllo, added some of the cheeses I had at home and made this chicken pie.
I named the pie “Kotopita tou Kynigou”, which means Hunter’s Pie, after the name of the leftover dish but you can use any kind of cooked leftover chicken, be it stewed, broiled, grilled, barbecued or boiled. I also added the cooked leftover carrots from dish. However, the addition of vegetables can be anything from peppers, corn, peas, grated carrots etc. and you will have a vegetable packed pie, great for giving to children and you will make your leftovers into the ultimate comfort food with the addition of only a few more ingredients.

As I have already informed you, my blog has been nominated by BHMAGourmet for an award, in the category “Best Greek cooking in English”. If you like my recipes and have not yet voted, you can still vote for my blog until the 14th of December, 2015, here.
We still have to participate in two challenges which will be judged by a committee. One of the challenges is to make frugal recipes which are nutritious and full of flavour and the other category is to make good use of our leftovers, so my today’s recipe falls in that category. More recipes with leftovers will follow, so stay tuned and keep voting 🙂
You can find my Greek recipes in my cookbooks «More Than A Greek Salad», and«Mint, Cinnamon & Blossom Water, Flavours of Cyprus, Kopiaste!» both available on all Amazon stores. Read more here.
