Easy Turkey Pot Pie

This is an easy to make Turkey Pot Pie. I used our leftover turkey and turkey broth that was frozen from our Thanksgiving meal. You of course can substitute chicken if that's what is in your freezer.

  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 Cup Onion chopped
  • 2 potatoes peeled and diced
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 4 Cups turkey Stock
  • 3 Cups turkey bite size pieces or shreds
  • 16 ounce package of frozen peas with carrots, thawed.
  • 1 prepared package of pie crust 
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 1 egg for egg wash beaten with 1 tablespoon water

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. In a large saute pan saute chopped onion and potatoes in melted butter till onion is translucent.
  3. Sprinkle flour over mixture and mix well and continue cooking for at least 2 minutes.
  4. Add all the turkey stock at once and heat to a boil.
  5. Add turkey and vegetables and mix well.
  6. Taste and season as needed.
  7. Empty the whole mixture into a 9 x 12 prepared casserole.
  8. Cover with the prepared pie crust. You might need to manipulate the crust to fit the dish.
  9. Brush the crust with the egg wash and place in preheated oven.
  10. Bake for 30 - 35 minutes or until crust is golden brown.


  1. This pot pie looks so delicious...........I'm trying it.

  2. This looks yummy, Ellen. I love pot pie ... It can easily be made gf by substituting the flour with (one part sweet rice flour to 3 parts cornstarch) and using my gf pastry found here http://www.mennonitegirlscancook.ca/2014/11/pie-pastry-gluten-free.html

  3. Oh, this looks so good and healthy, too. My husband will be in "Good Dinner Heaven" when I put this dish in front of him :)
    Thank you.
    While I am here I would like to invite you over to help me celebrate my three year blogging birthday.
    I'm having a Give-A-Way, it's not much, but it is handmade and you can use it in your kitchen :)
    Happy New Year.
    Connie :)

  4. Perfect for the left-overs - yum!

  5. I make these as individual pies to give away. Always well received. I use half stock and half cream to make it richer. A glug of sherry is nice too. It's lovely that Julie gives the gf conversion. You guys are awesome. angharad
