This is my favorite pot pie recipe. It's so simple. We've made this for years, it works equally well with chicken or beef (just change to cream of mushroom soup, and add a little beef base). My kids, who are very picky love it. I just have to say, when you change a recipe completely, before trying it as written, how in the world can you honestly give it a review??? I love this website, but the reviews drive me nuts, lol. Changing a few small things, because you didn't have something on hand is one thing, but to change the entire recipe, turn it into a mashed potato casserole, then call yourself reviewing a turkey pot pie?? I'm sorry, vent over:)Read More

This was VERY good! I was concerned that it would taste like cream of chicken soup, but it didn't at all. I made a few substitutions and additions that I think made it even better. I substituted 2t. minced, dried onion for the fresh (which reduced liquid content slightly) and 1c. evap. milk for 1/2c. milk. I think this made it creamier but not runny. I added 1t. chicken boullion granules, some pepper, and 1/2t. of each of the following spices: poultry seasoning, paprika, dried parsley, and garlic powder. My husband put it together, and he cut out small gingerbread shapes from the extra pie dough and put them on top of the top crust to entice the kids to eat. The refrigerated pie crusts are MUCH better than the frozen, by the way.
I was in a hurry this morning to get something made that is easy enough for my husband to finish since he gets home before I do. After glancing over the other ratings, I could see this is a very versatile recipe. I omitted the onions, added dried minced onions, garlic salt, oregano, lots of freshly goudn pepper, and substituted cream of chicken for cream of mushroom with roasted garlic. I used the refridgerated pie crusts, the mixed veggies from Costco's freezer section, and extra turkey from Thanksgiving's fried bird. Left it in the fridge all day for my husband to bake when he got home, and I came home to a delicious and tremendously easy dinner. This is definitely going into our winter dinner rotation. THANKS!!
My family loved this recipe. Keep in mind my 13 year old normally hates any kind of pie, including fruit pies. He ate two pieces of this. I made the following modifications: instead of frozen mixed veggies I used freshly cut carrots, celery and diced potatoes. I didn't saute the onion first--just threw it in. I put the turkey & veggies in, mixed the soup & milk together and poured that over the turkey & veggies. I used store bought refrigerated pie crusts to make it super easy. I also used an egg wash on the crust to make it nice and golden brown. I plan to use this recipe on a regular basis. Delicious homemade pot pie! Thanks so much for the recipe!
This recipe is fantastic. Not only was it easy as 1-2-3 to make, but what a GREAT way to use all the Holiday Turkey leftovers! I changed it up a bit adding whatever spices sounded good. I didn't have frozen veggies so I just popped open a couple cans of different veggies from my pantry; which actually gave me enough to make two pies - which is good because one pie was not enough. My family loved it and went back for 2nds and 3rd helpings. This recipe is definitely a keeper!
I doubled this recipe to have one for the freezer and I'm so glad I did! This turned out great with leftover rotisserie chicken instead of turkey. I used broccoli, carrots & cauliflower mixed veggies, then added a bit of frozen corn too. After sauting the onions I added the milk to the pan, and I added 2 bouillion cubes as another reviewer had noted it needed more flavor. I used the Pillsbury pie crusts. Outstanding, my husband loves pot pies & I never wanted to make one - this was super easy and delicious! I'm sure this will be a cold-weather favorite.
This is a great recipe for kids. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is because I wasn't able to follow to a T. I left out the onions because I'm the only one who likes them. And I didn't have pie crust, so I melted a little butter and mixed with plain bread crumbs and sprinkled it over the top. My family loved it. My 5 1/2 yr old had 2nds and is asking for leftovers today! Couldn't ask for anything better than that!
I'm almost starting to prefer the Boxing Day turkey pot pie more than the roast turkey on Christmas Day. I make this with fresh veggies - carrots, celery, potato, green beans/peas - and this year I ended up adding some leftover turkey gravy to the mix. It needs a lil freshly ground pepper and a wee shake of garlic powder, and it turns out really good. Thank you!
My only modification to this tasty dish was to add celery to the onion , season same with celery salt, and to use table cream instead of milk. Following other suggestions, I per-baked the pie crust. My husband was wild for this delicious and easy to make dish. Thanks for the recipe!
This is a great basic recipe. I made a couple of substitutions, based on my leftovers. Instead of the frozen mixed vegetables, I used leftover cooked whole green beans with browned mushrooms and instead of the pie crust, I spread the mixture into a greased casserole and topped with a layer of leftover Make-ahead Mashed Potatoes (recipe also on this website). The results were excellent and everyone asked for more. Easy, economical, versatile and delicious.
This is a good "start" but needs more spices to suit me. Overall....too bland and boring for us. I added for spices: 1/2 tsp each of salt and pepper and 1 tsp poulty seasoning.
5 stars with changes. I followed the recipe except adding my own combination of veggies. Potatoes, corn, carrots, celery, and onion to total 2 C. I did not cook anything before putting it in the pie and it came out fine. Just chop everything small enough.
Very good and easy. I followed the recipe exactly and was not disappointed.
I used this recipe just made it in a big batch with my turkey leftovers from the holidays. Used the shredded turkey and mixed vegetables. Then for the filling used some of the leftover turkey gravy and mixed in some cream of chicken soup. Added salt and pepper for taste and vualah-it was very good. I ended up having enough to make 8 pot pies and covered and froze for future dinners ; )
Made mine with chicken, carrots, celery, and potatoes. My husband went crazy over it! I didn't have any onions in the house so I had to use powder. Next time I'll add pepper too.
Wow, amazing recipe. I followed it primarily as mentioned online. I only added some additional seasoning such as garlic, Ms. Dash, pepper, salt, chicken boullion, and lastly instead of milk, I had heavy whipping cream on hand. This was really good and my husband loved it as well and he's somewhat a picky eater. I will most definitely make this again.
This was fantastic! We made it with a single crust and a sprinkle of cheese on top instead. Also, we used cream of mushroom soup and chicken rather than turkey, because that's what we had on hand at the time. Delicious!!
This was really good. I used store bought pie crust and followed the advice of another reviewer by using 1c evaporated milk rather than the 1/2 c regular milk. I didn't want to make more dirty dishes so I used minced onion instead of fresh. I also added salt, pepper, garlic powder and parsley. Very easy and a great last minute dinner solution.
I enjoyed making this the day after Thanksgiving so easy and had everything on hand great after shopping on black Friday.
My family of 4, including 2 picky kids, gobbled this up! The only changes I made to the recipe were substituting some leftover turkey gravy for some of the cream soup. I will definitely make again - it's simple and a great way to use up the Thanksgiving leftovers!
Best pot pie ever. Easy to make and my wife's co-workers are always amazed when she brings it in for lunch.
Excellent & easy. I switched to cream of potato soup and increased milk a bit. Delicious!!
Took the advice of another and used evaporated milk, chicken broth extra seasonings. Good with salad and rolls.
I just finished eating this and had to leave a review right away. It is so amazing! I used frozen puff pastry sheets and used half and half instead of milk. I didn't see the part about cooking the onions first (oops!) so they went in raw but came out completely tender. I added thyme, oregano, coarsely ground black pepper, garlic powder and a little parsley and the flavour was outstanding. It did boil over in the oven a little, so put a cookie sheet below it.
I love this recipe! It is not only delicious, but SO easy! I did substitute half of the mixed veggies for about 1 cup of cooked diced potato, and added an egg wash to the top. A great use for leftovers!
This is a good Basic recipe, but very boring!.... making your own sauce is really easy and using some herbs really kick it up.
This is a great basic that you can make a variety of ways! The soup was perfect in it. I changed up the veggies and added a little shredded cheese but it is a perfect recipe for friends and family. I will use this one for years to come! It turned out so good i had to submit a picture! Merry Christmas all!
5 stars for taste & simplicity! The only thing I would do differently is to make sure the turkey doesn't have any broth with it. Mine was a little runny, but that was because I threw all of my leftover turkey into it, including the broth. I didn't have any frozen veggies on hand, so I used canned mixed veggies instead. It was very good, but I'm sure it would be even better if I had used the frozen veggies. Great way to use up leftover turkey!
Thanks for the great recipe. Made my own pie crust and coated the pie pan with butter flavored shortening. Used soy milk instead of regular milk and added some additional spices (a few dashes of cayenne, rosemary and thyme). Also sauteed garlic with the onion (I can never have a dish without garlic!) Add a bit a flour for thickness and extra turkey and veggies. Fantastic! Thanks again.
My mom has made this recipe for years. This recipe needs a little "punch," Try adding a teaspoon of ground sage and some freshly ground black pepper. That would make it a 5 star recipe.
Pretty good! It went over well. I used my own recipe for cream of chicken instead of canned.
This is ridiculously delicious. I don't usually go in for turkey leftovers but Mom sent us home with four pounds of turkey so... I started off by sauteing the onion and adding two stalks of chopped celery. Then I threw in some shredded carrot and a spoonful of minced garlic. I added some (leftover) Lima beans and some frozen peas. I also added several small potatoes finely diced before I threw in the soup and some extra milk to offset the starch from the potato. I cooked it on the stove top until the potatoes where almost done before transferring to a rectangular baking dish and spreading a tube of crescent roll dough on top. My husband and daughter dislike pie dough. Oh and I seasoned liberally with Zender's chicken seasoning. So good we had to force ourselves to stop eating. I had to promise to pack it up for lunches tomorrow.
This recipe was ok, my son ate it but did not love it or touch the left overs, he said it was bland, I thought it was ok, I woulld not make this again. It wasn't bad but not super good.
I have been making pot pies like this since the beginning of time and it is a quick way to use left over chicken, turkey or roast beef. I sometimes use cream of mushroom soup or celery.Always good and I agree with some of the others. When you add this or that and the other then review it you are reviewing your own recipe not the one that is given.
Great recipe just as it is. I agree totally with Sonya. People that change the recipe into something else, then say they are rating it, miss the point. My least favorite phrase is "great recipe. I changed it when I made it by adding........
Sorry for all the changes I made to this recipe (why only 4 stars) but it was delicious!.. I used leftover roasted turkey that I had brined. I made the following changes/additions: Someone said it was bland so I added 1/4 tsp. black pepper, 1/4 tsp. of poultry seasoning and 1/2 tsp. of rubbed sage, also onion powder since my kids don't like seeing any chunks of it. I used a can of "ready to use" Creamy Chicken Soup and omitted the milk in the recipe. I added a pinch of flour to thicken the sauce since it wasn't condensed and 1 can of Veg-all for the veggies; I really like potatoes in mine. I did an eggwash on top and it came out beautiful! Sooo comforting on a cold day! :)
Although we did enjoy this recipe very much, for my taste it was a bit bland, even after adding garlic powder, pepper, salt, poultry seasoning and sage. Next time I will add even more of the seasoning. The kiddos really liked it as it was though, and so did my husband. They would probably give it 5 stars!
This was wonderful! First time making a pot pie and it turned out great. I used leftover turkey, a cauliflower/broccoli/carrot veggie mix and followed the rest of the recipe minus the onions (I did use minced onions). My 14 year old daughter loved it as did my boyfriend! Thumbs up!! Can't wait to try it with chicken! Thanks for the recipe Diane!
This got rave reviews from the fam. I'll be making it again! Oh, I only subbed chicken in place of the turkey but I didn't change anything else. Thanks for a keeper!
May add a little thyme next time but my husband loves it!
Great recipe! Used 2 cans of cream of chicken soup. Adds more sauce. Also used the "Buttery flaky pie crust" by Dana. Turned out wonderful. Great crust for this recipe!
This has great flavor but it needs more liquid. We like to have a bit more liquid to wet the pie crust. I may try again but add some chicken broth.
Yummy comfort food! Of couse, I had to tinker. My changes: I sauteed half an onion in butter, added in pepper, poultry seasoning and garlic powder. Also added in a cup of shredded sharp cheddar cheese. Used cream of mushroom soup instead of chicken. Love this! Thank you!
I used spinach and broccoli in the place of mixed veggies and added 1/2C shredded cheddar cheese. My three picky eaters loved it! Next time I will add a bit more spice.
This has become a regular in our household. Even my picky husband LOVES IT. Fantastic!
This was really good. I was actually surprised at how good it came out because the ingredients are so simple. I would even use this with left over rotissiere chicken. I also used fresh, boiled potatoes and carrots instead of canned.
i was searching for a turkey pot pie like i made many years ago, and this is very similar, i did not remember how long to cook it. this will be perfect for my leftover turkey and leftover veggies from a veggie tray, which i will saute carrots, celery & broccoli w/ the onions. Thanks!
We had turkey last week and I froze enough for a pie, checked this one out but it sounds a little too anaemic so I will add some lightly cooked celery, onion, poultry seasoning, white pepper,and a dash of sage, marjoram and thyme, canned gravy(no msg like canned soup)then brush the top crust with egg white and water for that lovely browned finish.
Delicious - and sooo easy!!
You will want to give this one a try! It was really easy and did not disappoint. However, when I try this next time I will play with some seasoning. It definately needs some salt and pepper, perhaps some poltry seasoning. I made the recipe exactly as called for and it was really easy and came out as expected. I used store bought premade crusts, frozen mixed vegetables. Always looking for ways to use up left over turkey!
Was great tasting and easy to make however next time I'll need to use a little more gravy
I don’t usually enjoy leftover turkey, but that’s what I used to make this great one-dish meal. I poured the filling in a frozen deep-dish piecrust and topped with a frozen regular depth piecrust for a perfect fit. I used 1/2 C carrots, 3/4 C peas, 3/4 C corn and subbed 4 T frozen seasoning blend (onions, celery, peppers, parsley) for the onion. When combining all of the ingredients, I generously sprinkled the mixture with Nature’s Seasons Seasoning Blend. It is also great made with cooked turkey cutlets. To make extra-special individual pot pies, I pour the pot pie mix into 4 oven-proof bowls, top with puff pastry cut to fit and bake 15 minutes at 400 degrees. Beautiful and delicious.
This is a great way to use up left over turkey. Definetly need to add salt and pepper.
I loved this recipe even though I only used it for proportions. Skipped frozen vegetables and substituted sauteed mushrooms and onions plus fresh thyme.
Excellent recipe. Family gobbled it down, had 1 small piece left for lunch the next day and it was just as good. It took others advice and added poultry seasoning, white pepper, garlic powder and a dash of celery seed. I also left out the onions and used leftover Thanksgiving turkey and some half and half instead of milk. Next time I'll make two and freeze the extra. Yummy!!!
I would use this recipe again! It is a good way to use leftover turkey. I would cut down on the veggies next time and add more turkey. Husband and kids loved it. Very easy to throw together :)
I loves this pie, i put left-over mashed patatoes on top instead of a crust, and it was awesome!
This is a quick and easy way to get rid of leftovers. To skimp on calories, I didn't use a bottom crust, and it turned out fine. I also saved a lot of time by heating the turkey/vegetable/soup/milk mixture in the microwave for 2-3 minutes until it was hot. The top crust on the pie baked in 20-30 minutes, and the inside was nice and hot.
This was fantastic. Did as was suggested we added 2 crushed chicken bouillon cubes. this added the perfect amount of seasoning. We like ours very wet so I simply added a 1/4 extra milk. but would not be necessary. Instead of 2 cups of the veggies I added one cup of the veggies and 1 can of sliced new potatoes. since they are already cooked they heated with everything else perfectly. very yummy everyone had seconds!!! thanks for the recipe.
Great and easy recipe. Made it again and used 2 cans of cream of celery soup and 1 1/2 cups of milk. I also added 1 tsp of salt, 1 tsp thyme and 1/2 tsp of pepper. I made this in a 10" deep dish crust. My family loves the extra creaminess with the extra can of soup. Might try this in individual casseroles next time. Leftovers are good reheated also.
I had some left over turkey from Thanksgiving and decided to make this pie. At the top of the recipe it states that you can assemble it and freeze to bake at a later time so that's what I decided to do. So I decided to bake it today. There were no instructions included as to how to bake once frozen. I wasn't sure what to do whether I should thaw it or cook frozen. I asked the question twice on the recipe exchange and although some people were kind enough to respond there was no definative answer. I decided to do it frozen at 400 degrees. I took two hours to cook and probably could have gone longer but my family was complaining that they were wasting away and needed to eat. I would say it probably could have gone another 20 minutes to a half hour because the bottom crust was a little gummy still. Was it worth the two hour wait? No but it was tasty and I would make it again but I would bake it right away. I would never freeze again.
This was FANTASTIC!!!! It was very simple which is good because I'm not the most advanced cook; I'm only 15! This was very yummy! I was so excited to try it and I loved it! Insted of using cream of chicking soup I used cream of mushroom. And I also didn't use frozen veggies. Instead I peeled and cut carots and diced canned potatoes. Also I used Pillsbury pie crust because I don't know how to make it from scratch. Other than that I didn't change anything. THIS WAS DELICIOUS!!!!!!
5 stars just for how easy it is. Of course it's good though. I add a little poultry seasning and salt and pepper to the soup mixture.
This is a GREAT recipe! Used leftover turkey, a can of potatoes which I diced, a can of peas & carrots, a can of cream of chicken soup and about a little less than a can of milk, parsley flakes and poultry seasoning. Mixed in a bowl and added to a Pillsbury Pie Crust. This really came out great, even my picky teenagers enjoyed it!
AWESOME! I made this in a deep dish with one thick crust on top. It was soooo good and I had to control myself from eating the whole dang thing. It had a wonderful creamy consistency yet held together for slicing. My whole family loved it. I will use this recipe again and again possibly trying chicken, pork and maybe shrimp.
This was really good! My only changes were: I used 2 cans of cream of chicken and mushroom. I used at least a half a cup of onion. I used a glass dish to cook it in. The crust cooked evenly top and bottom. I will cook this again!
This meal was very good. Lacked chicken flavor slightly. The flavor could be enhanced by adding chicken base. We will have to try adding additional flavor next time. Extremly easy to make. Great for busy family.
Really good, fairly easy to make. I used 1/2 c. milk, was fine. Also added 1 tsp. of paprika, bouillon granules, dried parsley, garlic powder as suggested. Used chopped onion from a jar also, was fine. As long as you plan a little in advance, and buy the crusts, soup and mixed veggies, it's a good meal to make on a Sunday for leftovers on Monday and Tues. I will definitely make again! Thanks!
I just love this recipe! I got many rave reviews from seasoned cooks who wanted my fabulous recipe. I was almost embarrassed to tell them how absolutely easy it was.
I had a turkey hindquarter which someone had given me and am not overly fond of dark meat. So I stewed the hindquarter and used it in this recipe, along with Pillsbury pie crust and restaurant style mixed vegies. It was absolutely delicious. I will definitely make this one again.
Easy and delicious
added jalapeno and sour cream and used puff pastry crust - awesome!!
I froze mine. What temp should I cook it and for how long?
WOW! Easy, tasty and adaptable! Everyone loved this recipe (as is) even though they were all sick of turkey leftovers! Try this one for sure!
Using the cream soup didnt make the filling as creamy as my homemade filling.
This was simply delicious and very easy to fix. I added cubed potatoes and it made my entire kitchen smell wonderful as it was baking.
I must say first that this recipe is great as posted, but I love this as a stepping-off point recipe. I usually saute mushrooms with the onions, and make 2 pies (freeze 1) using a pound of leftover turkey. I sometimes add leftover gravy instead of some of the soup if I still have any left as well as some poultry seasoning. This is pure comfort food.
very tasty!! Added fresh herbs (sage, rosemary & thyme) since I had them leftover from Thanksgiving. Didn't make a crust (I can't!) and used crescent roll dough instead. Very tasty - even my husband ate it and he doesn't like turkey!! Made 2 casseroles from it - the other one is in the freezer and I layered the bottom of the dish with leftover mashed potatoes so I will let you know how it turns out!
LOVE IT! Just as is . . it is awesome!
Very good and simple, The only thing I changed was I added 1 tsp poultry seasoning, and 1.5 tsp fresh thyme, and half and half instead of milk....Everyone loved it. It's now in our go to recipe book....Thanks Diane for sharing....
I doubled this Recipe so the kids could have some for lunches tomorrow The family just loved this simple recipe.
I didn't mind this recipe, it seemes to be missing something, but then again how exciting is pot pie supposed to be in the first place? I ended up using a can of reduce fat mushroom soup because that was all I had in the house and I added a little bit a spice and a clove of garlic. I didn't mind the flavour at all, I was quite impressed with my first pot pie. Thanks for sharing
no changes and yes i will make it again
It was easy enough. But I could have used a bit more flavor. I will tweak it and try again.
Yummy - Kids and hubby loved it! Quick and easy when you use frozen deep dish pie shells.
Good recipe but a bit bland. I added extra seasonings - fresh rosemary, thyme, salt.
Great recipe! All I did was add some poultry seasoning and black pepper. It turned out to be delicious. I will definitely make again
It was a total hit with the kids, I used pre made crust for easyness, Would definalty made again , Good way to get kids to eat veggies
Great homemade taste. Yummy!!!
DELICIOUS!!! I have made this dish over and over again!!!!!!!!! It's great for company too. Easy to make!!!! Great with cooked chicken as well!!!
This turned out fantastic. I followed the recomendations and we loved it. Will def make this again, I can't beleive how easy and good this was!
What a fantastic, "What's for dinner tonight, hon?" meal! A little on the bland side, but easily adjusted with spices. It doesn't get any easier than this.
this was amazing
Followed the recipe with the exception of leaving off the top layer of crust to save on some calories. Great for using up leftover turkey and super easy to put together. Will definitely be making this again!
We love this recipe, I have made it a few times now. It's absolutely perfect for leftover holiday turkey and it tastes so nummy! The vegetables I use are a mix of peas and carrots, and it's the only I can get my picky toddler to eat peas. I use a whole small onion, sauteed a bit first, and if I have a lot of turkey, I'll add a little more milk, some garlic powder and pepper. But, the recipe works wonderfully as is!
This was really, really, a great recipe! I don't particularly care for recipes using cream of anything soup but this was great. When we were first married, my husband and I used to live on Swanson pot pies at least once a week. I haven't had pot pie for ages so I was a little reluctant to try this. I used both milk and white wine for the liquid, added fresh mushrooms and cooked fresh carrots and added a bit of the water the carrots cooked in. I also added about 1/2 teaspoon of powdered garlic. REAL COMFORT FOOD!!!
This recipe is very good, but if you add a bit of poultry seasonings it's perfect.
This is a great recipe for a basic pot pie! I subbed heavy cream for milk and added a splash more. Try adding half a pinch of rosemary, a full pinch of marjoram and 1/2 tsp of thyme to this recipe and it will be amazing for you too.
THIS WAS AMAZING! my husband ate 3 servings! i loved it myself. i used cream of chicken and mushroom. this recipe is a keeper. will make again very soon! thank you diane!
