Made with simple ingredients, this turkey pot pie is a hearty dinner for your whole family. Prepare the filling the night before for an easy meal during workdays.
I love a good chicken pot pie. That’s one of the dinner options whenever I have leftover chicken on hand. Similarly, if there’s leftover turkey in my fridge, I’d want to use it for a turkey pot pie just like this recipe.
With a few simple vegetables like onions, carrots, potatoes, celery and a healthy cream, this is a super comforting pot pie for your entire family. When I say healthy cream, I meant that there are no processed foods like store-bought condensed soup added.
In my opinion, a good broth, some milk and a thickening agent like all-purpose flour are enough to make a cream that’s way better than any canned soup. In this turkey pot pie recipe, I used homemade turkey bone broth for the filling. If you don’t happen to have any homemade broth on hand, regular chicken broth works just fine.
The best part about this recipe is that you can prepare the filling beforehand, pour it into a pie dish and refrigerate it until you are ready to bake. At that point, all you need to do is to top the filling with a pie crust and bake. Easy breezy!
