How Long to Bake Turkey Pot Pie:

After you prepared the turkey pot pie, place in in the oven. You will bake the pot pie for about 40 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Cooking time will vary based on your oven.

If the pie crust is getting too brown in the oven, loosely cover the pie with foil to keep it from getting browner.

Variations:

  • Change the Meat – You can easily use cooked chicken instead of turkey in this recipe. Chicken, Roast, or just do a vegetable pot pie. All good options and the recipe would stay the same.
  • Vegetables – We used frozen mixed vegetables, but any type of vegetables can be tossed in the mixed. We also like to add in some cook potatoes and green beans. Potatoes give it a delicious texture.
  • Cream Soup – We used cream of chicken soup, but you can easy cream of mushroom or cream of celery. You can even make Homemade Cream of Chicken Soup. It is easy and is made with simple ingredients.
  • Chicken Broth – If you like a thinner sauce, you can add in chicken broth.

How to Make Turkey Pot Pie Ahead of Time:

Turkey Pot Pie is the perfect meal to meal prep with. You can easily prepare your pot pie the night before and place in the refrigerator and bake it the next day. This saves me time when I get home from work.

How to Freeze Turkey Pot Pie:

Freezing Turkey Pot Pie is one of my favorite freezer meals to prepare. This would be a perfect meal to prepare for a friend or family that just had a baby or had surgery.

  • Prepare your Turkey Pot Pie as indicated on the recipe card.
  • Allow Pot Pie to cool completely.
  • Cover the pie completely with plastic wrap and then foil.
  • Write the date on the pot pie so you know when it was prepared.
  • Place in the freezer and it is good for up to 3 months.
  • When you are ready to serve, uncover the pot pie from the plastic wrap and foil and place in the oven.
  • Bake at preheated oven at 375 degrees for about 75 minutes. You will know it is done when the crust is bubbly.

What to Serve with Turkey Pot Pie:

When serving Turkey Pot Pie there are many different options. You can keep your sides light with a side of roasted vegetables or some garlic bread. Here are some of our suggestions:

  • Easy Roasted AsparagusWe love roasted asparagus it goes with many different dishes and the perfect side with this pot pie. I end up mixing everything together when it is on my plate.
  • Tropical FruitThis refreshing fruit salads pairs perfect with a pot pie. It is light, tasty and easy to make.
  • Homemade Dinner Rolls We love to add a side of homemade dinner rolls to our pot pie. We love to make sure we get the last drop of pot pie mixture.
