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 box with corn starch. This allows the mixture to be thicker and flavorful.
  • Baking – Bake pot pie until the crust is golden brown.

Variations and Additions:

  • Change the Meat – You can easily use cooked chicken instead of 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 – You can use whatever vegetables you have leftover. Feel free to use any leftovers that you have. We love to add in green beans and corn.
  • Crust – If you want to use a traditional crust for this recipe, you can. Make a homemade crust or with a pre-made refrigerated pie crust. Be sure to egg wash the top of the crust for a flaky top.
