Double Mileage Meal: Whole Chicken

This weeks Double Mileage Meal is super simple & requires very little work for both meals.
We begin with a whole chicken (5-6 pounds fed our family)

You'll also need:

2 tsp kosher salt (if you'd like it as salty as the ones in the store, add another 1 tsp.)
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp black pepper
pinch of chili pepper (probably not necessary)
4 whole garlic cloves (optional)
1 yellow onion, quartered (optional)
1 can Veg-All mixed Vegetables, drained
1 can Cream of Potato Soup
1 can Cream of Chicken Soup
1/2 a soup can of milk
2 uncooked refrigerated pie crusts
salt & pepper to taste
1 egg, slightly beaten for egg wash 

Prepare the Crockpot Rotisserie-Style Chicken as directed.  Once cooked, use the breasts of the bird as the main dish for meal #1 (you can also shred it for tacos or wraps if desired).  Remove & shred the meat from the wings & thighs to save for Chicken Pot Pie.

I have made both these meals. We serves baked potatoes and corn with the rotisserie chicken and then freeze the rest for chicken pot pie night, unless of course I'm making it with the next day or two.

The rotisserie chicken comes out so moist, you'd think there was water added to the crockpot. It's crazy to think that there's not.

The chicken pot pie recipe is so quick and easy.
