Variations and Additions:
- Change the Meat – You can easily use cooked chicken instead of leftover Thanksgiving turkey in this recipe. You can even use rotisserie chicken. Chicken Pot Pie is one of favorite comfort meals.
- Stuffing – If you have leftover stuffing, you can easily use it. The boxed store bought stuffing mix is used if you do not have leftover stuffing.
- Change the Vegetables – Feel free to use whatever vegetables you have leftover. We love to add in carrots, frozen peas, sweet potato, green beans and corn.
- Crust – If you want to use a traditional crust for this recipe, you can. Make a homemade pie dough or with a pre-made refrigerated pie crust. Be sure to egg wash the top of the crust for a flaky top. We have also made it with a puff pastry and also added a bottom crust.
Step by Step Instructions:
Step 1 – Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the onion and celery and sauté until the veggies are soft (2-3 minutes).
Step 2 – Then stir in the frozen mixed vegetables, the cooked shredded turkey, and the seasonings. Plus the 2 cups of the chicken broth.
Step 3 – Bring the turkey pot pie filling to a boil. Then simmer over medium heat for approximately 10 minutes. Add this cornstarch mixture to the pan. Then heat over medium low heat until the turkey mixture has thickened (4-6 minutes).
Step 4 – Then pour the turkey and vegetable mixture into a 9X13 pan. Sprinkle the stuffing mixture on top and evenly pour the melted butter over the stuffing mixture. Cover the casserole with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake for additional 15 minutes.
Stuffing Turkey Pot Pie Tips:
- Vegetables – We recommend finely chopping the celery and onion prior to cooking.
- Simmer Ingredients – Allow the vegetables and turkey to simmer for at least for 10 minutes in a large pot.
- Sauce – For added flavor mix chicken broth with corn starch or all purpose flour. This allows the mixture to be thicker and flavorful.
- Baking – Bake pot pie until the crust is golden brown.
