With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: Turkey (or Chicken) Pot Pie

Turkey (or Chicken) Pot Pie

A comforting  Pot-Pie often follows a dinner of roasted turkey or chicken in our home.
Any leftover veggies can be tossed in or you can make fresh or use frozen ones.
Make your own crust or for ease, use refrigerated ones from the grocery store. 
Dinner for a friend feeling under the weather included
Turkey Pot Pie, Sauteed Apples, Honey Cornbread mini muffins and Ginger Crinkles cookies.

Turkey (or Chicken) Pot Pie


1/3 cup butter
1/3 cup flour
1/3 cup chopped onion
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 3/4 cups chicken broth/stock
2/3 cup milk
2 cups cooked turkey (or chicken) cut in small chunks
10 oz bag frozen peas and carrots (I peel, slice and cook fresh carrots, leaving in large chunks and toss in peas)
2-crust pastry

Heat oven to 425 degrees.  In saucepan  melt butter over low heat.  Blend in flour, onion and seasonings.  Cook stirring until mixture is bubbly.  Remove from heat; stir in broth and milk.  Heat to boiling, stirring constantly.  Boil and stir 1 minute.  Gently stir in chicken and vegetables.  Set aside.

Prepare pastry and fit bottom crust into deep-dish pie pan.  Fill crust and top with remaining crust.  Cut slits and bake 30-35 minutes.

This looks wonderful! I used to love those old frozen pot pies when I was a child.....I can only imagine how wonderful this would be...I've never tried to make my own. I'm going to put this on my list.

I don't have my recipe files with me at the moment, but I'd swear this is the same recipe I've been using for years. Did you get it from BH&G?

Lorraine said...

Patricia... This is one of my oldest recipes and I thought it was from my Betty Crocker book.. It wasn't in there or the Pillsbury Family Cook Book so I am not sure where it came from. If you find out, let me know!

I'm sure your friend was thrilled to receive such a great dinner! Pot Pie is a favorite of ours:@)

Keri On said...

Ah! Looks delicious! I just love this time of year...the turkey and all he yummy things you can make from left-overs....wish we had more left-overs!

Maggie Ann said...

Ooh yum...I wish I could have a piece of that right now. Maybe I'll give it a try with gluten free...crust.

I've been making dinner for my dear, little mother for the past week and a half while she's recovering from a bad fall. I've had pot pie in mind - now I KNOW I'm going to make it! Thanks for the inspiration. I'm going to use your recipe and I know we will absolutely love it!

Ann said...

If I was feeling under the weather a dinner like this would sure make me feel better. That looks really good. I haven't had a pot pie in ages

Melissa said...

I love Pot Pies!

Your photos are always so pretty!

I bet this is 10 times better than those little store bought pot pies. What a treat for your sick friend!

Tammy said...

That looks divine! Pot pie is one of my favorites -- but now I only do vege. There is a company called Amy's Organics, in the freezer section, that does one and even though it can be heated in the microwave, it comes out absolutely delicious, crust and all! Yummo! Have a great day! Tammy

You always share the best recipes; another good comfort food one. And your photos make them look all the better. I'm hungry and it's only 5:30 in the morning. :)

Blessings and love,

Chicken pot pie really is the ultimate comfort food. I made some on the weekend and everyone loved it. Yours looks delicious!

My hubby loves pot pie, and all things pastry.
Comfort food at its finest!


Great pie, I love chicken pot pie, but I like the turkey idea too, now that Thanksgiving is coming and we'll have left overs. Big hugs,
