Turkey pot pie like you have never tasted before. It won't last long.
Turkey pot pie like you have never tasted before. It won't last long.
Awesome Recipe! So quick and easy but since I had time I changed a few things up. I chopped fresh carrots but used frozen peas. Instead of chopped onion I used pearl onions and instead of green beans I used corn. I melted the butter and sauteed the celery, carrot, garlic and onion along with bay, thyme, sage, parsley, a tsp of tumeric for color, and the rest of the ingredients but I omitted the italian seasoning and onion powder. When I dumped in the flour I let it brown a bit before adding the milk and chicken stock. I added the thawed veggies, I just ran them under cold water and strained them. I used some pulled turkey I had frozen from thanks giving and it came out awesome!!! Thanks!Read More

This was fantastic! So easy and quick to make. I used a bag of mixed veggies (corn, peas, carrots, greenbeans, lima beans) and everything else was per the recipe. Delicious. My whole family loved it and my Hubby ate seconds. Will definitely make this again!
Great recipe! I made it pretty much exactly as written, except that I didn't have a frozen pea/carrot mix, so I used 1 cup of fresh diced carrots and 1 cup of frozen peas. I also used only a top crust on the pie; a double crust would have been way to rich for me and my family! The filling was awesome, very rich, buttery, creamy, and filling, with just the right amount of veggies and turkey. It was so nice and thick as well...a lot of pot pie recipes out there are to thin for my taste! My family really enjoyed this, and I'd make it again. Thanks for sharing the recipe!!!
This is without a doubt the best pot pie recipe I have tried,,, I have made it several times with chicken and I also added sliced mushrooms with the butter and oinions,, and used homemade chicken broth,, it was just a really good meal, and will make it again and again, several of my friends had requested one of my pies and it keeps and reheats well,, thank you for sharing
This was awesome. I'm newly married and I like to try new recipes. Everyone loved it. My mom went back for 2nds!! I use fresh veggies & add cubed potatoes and leave out the bottom crust to lighten it up. Since we have a small family, we froze one of the pies & it cooked up fine. I put it in the fridge to thaw for one day and cooked as normal. I also brush it with an egg wash. This recipe is tops!!
I followed this recipe almost exactly and was extremely happy with the result. My only modifications were that I made 4 individual pot pies (10oz. ramekins) as opposed to one big pot pie (9"). And my only comment to the negative is that the filling was a bit too thick. I like to be able to dip my crust in my filling and it was a bit difficult. Next time (and there will be a next time) I'll either use less flour, or more milk. I'll let you know which it is.
It didn't last long!! This was my first attempt at making a turkey pot pie and it was a success. It is an easy recipe to follow and oh so tasty.
Kudos to Dad!! This was so tasty, warm and filling for a frosty Fall eve. I was only going to make one pie, but found I had the perfect amt of turkey for two. I used one pkg(16 Oz) frozen mixed veggies that had peas, corn, carrots and green beans....came out to the 4c called for. The filling had enough body to it, not too thick nor runny. (someone suggested a Can of soup substitute....No Way!) I omitted the celery seed, had none, and used one beryl Lg onion. My hubby and I agreed it was the Best either of us has ever had, and we both are pretty good cooks. Yes, I "cheated" and used the Pillsbury refrigerated crusts....so much easier. This one ended my search for The Perfect Turkey Pot Pie.....this is IT! Thank you Dad and Allrecipes! Love this site!!
I follow the recipe and this was the best pot pie I have ever tried.
This is by far the best pot pie I have ever made. I could never get the correct amount of liquid - either too runny or too solid. This is perfect and the seasoning it great. Thank you for posting this recipe!
I really liked this recipe except rather than using italian seasoning since it really doesn't suit this recipe I swapped it for poultry seasoning and sauteed the onions and celery with a few bay leaves, it gave it great flavor!!!!!!! I did not use the celery seed because I sauteed the celery with the onions so the flavor turned out just fine. I did add a little milk to it because it was a little thick at first and put in a teaspoon of Better than boullion chicken base to give the broth a little more flavor .. all in all this is a nice recipe ;)
This was a delicious recipe for that leftover turkey. I was lazy and topped ours with mashed potatoes (I am incapable of producing a 'pretty' pie), but I am sure the pie crust would have been terrific. There's a nice combination of vegetables here, but I think this is one you could play with a little based on what you have on hand. This is my new base recipe for pot pie.
Made with Thanksgiving leftovers, this pie is divine! I followed the recipe exactly, pulled out my trusty 11" deep dish pie plate, and prepared to use my favorite Pillsbury pie crusts. OOPS, I was out! Pulled out my baking mix and whipped up a crust using biscuit dough. I poured the filling into the pie plate, topped it with the biscuit crust and cooked it at 425 for about 20 minutes. My husband and son each had two huge helpings and my husband took the last helping to work for lunch! I've never seen that pie plate empty, but it certainly was after I made this! A couple of changes I would make, though: 1) Add the celery in when you're sauteing the onions with the butter. My celery was way too crunchy. 2) I used a 10-oz bag of frozen peas, green beans, corn and carrots. It worked perfectly! Happy eating and thank the Lord for leftover turkey!!
I just finished my first slice of this. OMG it is rich and yummy. My teenage daughter loved it. For the crust I made the Flaky Pie crust that is found here on the web site. The other thing I did was made my own turkey stock and used that in this recipe. This is now a keeper recipe in our family cookbook. I can not recommend it enough!
This the second turkey pot pie recipe I've tried from allrecipes and it is hands down the best. I'm stopping right here. I didn't make any changes other than using entirely frozen peas, carrots and green beans mix and it came out perfect. Everyone LOVED it. A keeper for sure!!!
Excellent recipe. My husband loved it.
I have used this as a base recipe for chicken pot pie or turkey pot pie for years. We mix up the vegetables and add dill weed to the spices and include Lawry's seasoned pepper since it's a staple in our house. I have used this base recipe to teach my kids and my daughter makes it with beef because of her and her husband's preference. It all started back when Costco stopped using the rotisserie chicken in their pot pies and my family was not having it. I began using either the leftover turkey or rotisserie chicken and made my own. The kids will never let me go back to store bought lol. Everytume I make this recipe I have to make 4 of them. Everyone likes their own veggie mixes so mix it up a bit! I use fresh carrots, celery, potatoes onion and also add fresh garlic to them all. It's a family favorite so I am incredibly grateful to have found this recipe. It's incredibly versatile and you can adjust to your own taste. Have fun with it!
Decided to make this tonight to use up leftover Turkey. It was Awesome! I used "Steamers" frozen mixed vegetables (corn, green beans, carrots and peas in one package) instead of buying two separate bags of veggies. As with some other reviewers, my sauce thickened up a little too much when it started to bubble so I added about 1/4 cup more chicken stock. Also, I tasted after stirring in the spices and it was Ok but I didn't have any celery salt and thought it needed something so I substituted Garlic Salt then decided to add a little fresh grated parmesan. That really took it to the next level. Yum! Will definitely make again. Thank you for sharing Rob.
This was very good! So good in fact that my husband has asked me to make it for the second night in a row.
Very pleased with the results after cutting recipe in half (just two of us) we will make again! The seasoning was perfect, not to little, not too much but just right. Thanks!
Followed recipe as is. A huge hit with my family...I will make this every year or substitute chicken throughout the year! The spices were perfect, making it full of flavor. Thanks for a great recipe.
I simmer the turkey bones with carrots, celery, onion, and garlic in 2 cans of low sodium chicken broth and water for about 1 hour, strain. I use this instead of the chicken broth. I make several pies with the left over turkey meat. We have one for dinner and I freeze the others so we can enjoy them throughout the year. I also have add any left over veggies, gravy, and have added some leftover stuffing.
I did not care for this recipe. Made it exactly like recipe except I made my own crust which was the only good thing about it.
Excellent Pie! I used the Pie Crust IV Recipe from this website, and it turned out very well. I now use the sauce of this turkey pot pie as a "base" for other pot pies, I just change the spices and vegetables, and each pie has so far been a huge success. Thank you for sharing this nice recipe!
Delicious and a big hit with the family. Great way to use up those turkey leftovers!
This was awesome! I followed it almost exactly. I made my crusts from scratch. I only made enough for one pot pie in my casserole dish. I didn't have green beans or celery - I used peas and some other veggies and added lots of savory seasoning as well. I got the perfect compliment from my husband. "This was the absolute best meal you've ever made!" I was swooning :) I cook often, but this just hit the target perfectly. Thank you!!!
As written, the pies are bland however the consistency was right on. There was no liquid in the filling at all. I modified as follows: 2 Yukon gold potatoes ,diced in bite size chunks and added to the veggies after they were cooked. I cooked the veggies in the broth as others suggested and saved the broth for the sauce. I also added some fresh carrots to the veggies to give the pie some more mass and texture. Lastly, i let the butter, onion and flour mix cookmfor 5 more minutes to help brown the mixture before adding thenstock and milk. One pie served 6 people and the sides were a green salad and a green vegetable. The family said it was a 5 star recipe with my modifications. They really liked how packed the filling was with veggies and meat and that the filling stood up by itself and nothing ran outside of the pie shaped slices I served.
My back was really hurting, and I couldn't stand up for very long. I used 2 cans of mixed veggies to make this, and the broth from my roasted turkey. Added garlic powder, and used onion flakes. It still turned out beautifully. Thank you for this very forgiving recipe.
I liked the sound of this, just minor changes. used fresh Carrots and added potatoes that I boiled for 15 minutes before so there not to soft or to hard. Then I used Phyllo dough and cooked in a ramekins. Ummmm is all I can say
My family of men loved this! I'll definitely make it again. One note - don't feel like you have to use green beans, peas and carrots. Tastes great with any vegetables you have on hand.
I made this recipe the first time almost exactly as written. It was amazing. My husband ate almost half the darn pie himself. It is now his most favorite thing I ever made, and I have three of this pie in the oven as we speak. Only difference this time; chicken. So dang delicious.
This was very, very good! For those saying it was too thick... it's supposed to be! Spices were perfect! Thanks for a great recipe that I'll keep going back to! I did saute my vegies (12 oz frozen mix) with the onion and celery like another suggested... simple and so tasty!
This is the best Turkey Pot Pie I have ever had. I will definitely be making this a lot. I will also be making it using chicken too!
Delicious! I omitted the onion powder and celery seed, as the real deal already added loads of flavor. I also prefer seasoning with thyme, sage and marjoram instead of Italian seasonings.
Amazing! Followed the recipe exactly.
BEST POT PIE RECIPE EVER!! I've been searching for that one special pot pie/comfort food recipe and I finally found "the one". My only regret when making this tonight was that I only had one pie crust, otherwise, I would have made it by the vat! I followed the recipe almost exactly except that I didn't have celery seed so I used some parsely flakes instead. Not sure if this helped or hindered but I loved it anyway! I really appreciated that it wasn't a can of soup mixed with some veggies, but rather ingredients I always have on hand (except for the pie crusts). I'm not one to mess with perfection, but in a bind I might try making my own crust if I don't happen to have the frozen kind. Thanks for an awesome recipe Rob N.! You gave me the perfect recipe for one of my all-time favorite comfort foods!
This pot pie is indescribably delicious. Followed recipe to the letter. It is my new favorite company dish. I'm making my second one today, this time with homemade crust -- buttermilk crust from this site. I have friends who are traveling out of the counry for three weeks. I'm going to make this pie for them so upon their return they can have a homemade comfort food ready to pop in the oven. Thanks for this wonderful recipe.
We made this last night as written except we substituted corn for the green beans. It was so easy and very, very good. I think I would have liked the inside to be a bit thinner and would use more chicken broth or milk next time. My husband and son felt it perfect just the way it was. We will definitely be making this pot pie again. Thanks for sharing Rob!
Easy pot pie recipe, I did cut the butter to 1/2 cup and sauteed the celery with the onion for a crunchier celery. It was a great recipe and other than the picky eaters we loved it!
This was an excellent pot pie!!! I have made several different ones and the fillings are usually do heavy or not seasoned enough. We thought this was perfect! My son had 3 helpings and we all went back for seconds. The recipes yields two pies, so I just cut it in half. I usually make my own crusts, but tonight used the Pillsbury Pie Crusts in the refrigerated section. Much easier then a frozen crust. Worked fantastic!!
Often times, the METHOD is more important than the ingredients. I didn't have all the ingredients this recipe calls for, so I substituted fresh veggies that I had to use up. Thanks to the method of this recipe, my attempt was VERY successful! My family loved it! Thank you for sharing this awesome recipe!
Use the foil 15 minutes in or else it will burn.
We used leftover turkey and followed other reviewers who sauteed the veggies. We used a small onion, and added a small potato and a couple of mushrooms. We skipped the green beans, celery seed and the onion powder since we did not have any at hand but used fresh rosemary and thyme in addition to the Italian Seasoning. The only thing we would also add next time is a bit of garlic and a little bit more pepper. For the crust we used the recipe from this website called "Pie Crust IV" SO GOOD!!! will make again and again!
Fantastic! After all of our overindulgences over Thanksgiving, this was a nice follow-up. I used skim milk, so cut back some calories. I also used ramekins to make the recipe without pie crust... only adding crust on top. Yummy!
Turned out Perfect! Wasn't runny at all. When I added the flour I let it cook a bit before adding the liquid. It was like a thick gravy even after adding all the liquid. Used what I had on hand: 12 oz bag of mixed veggies still frozen (peas, carrots, green beans, corn), no celery, leftover chicken. Had to cover the edges with foil. Looking forward to making again!
I cooked the broth etc. on low and constantly stirred it until it was nice and thick...no runny broth when I cooked the pie...I didn't pre cook the veggies...they cooked with the pie...and I didn't use the italian and onion spices.....abosolutely loved this
I enjoyed this pot pie. I've tried other recipes in the past and they're always too runny. I followed the recipe for the "gravy" exactly and will use less pepper next time (personal taste). I did add the veggies that my family liked, including potato. Overall a good recipe.
5 star recipe- I make this all the time with leftover chicken!! The kids love this recipe!! I vary my vegtables on what I have at home. Usually add frozen peas and corn, and fresh carrots and celery.
Excellent flavor! The sauce was entirely too thick- browned the roux a little longer, then added more broth and milk, then added a little white wine. Did not use Italian seasoning- instead added more onion, sage, fresh thyme. Baked the bottom crust for 10 minutes before adding the filling. Was even better reheated the next day! Yummy!
Awesome recipe, thank you! I made a few minor changes based on the ingredients I had available. I used 4 cups mixed vegetables that come frozen together. I also used celery salt instead of celery seed and cut the regular salt by 1/2 tsp. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly with wonderful results. Next time I may try and cut down on the butter a little bit, but I definitely will be making this again!
Dee-lish!!! I will be making this recipe the day after thxgiving from now on! My husband absolutely loves this dish. Easy recipe.
I used fresh carrots and beans and added fresh chopped mushroom to the sauteing onion. The final consistency was just right and the taste was even better. Thanks, "Dad". I'm interested in whether my pot-pie hating wife eats it ;-) I think she will.
LOVE IT!!! Keeping this one for sure!
Outstanding flavor, and easy to make. The pies held up well in the oven, and were firm rather than juicy. I substituted celery salt for celery seed + salt, and substituted thyme for Italian seasoning. Good recipe!
Awesome!! I followed the recipe except for reducing the butter by half to cut down on fat. This is a delicious pot pie!
Yum! Followed the recipe as written, and it was the best pot pie I've ever had. A keeper for SURE!
Prepared this dish for dinner today. My husband is not fond of turkey, but really liked this pie. I thought it was very good and easy to prepare. I did not add the green beans as I did not have any. Used corn as a substitute. I plan to take the extra pie to my adult grandsons. They'll devour it.
This was the most amazing pot pie I have ever tasted! It was so delicious and tender. I was always afraid of making one because I thought all the stuff would run out but it all stayed together so nice. I will be making this again and again! Hope you enjoy it and thanks Dad!
Absolutely delicious! I made enough for 2 pot pies and froze the remaning filling. A perfect recipe!!
Very, very good! Since I've been cooking for 40 years I knew not to discard the water from the veggies... I used frozen and added them to the milk and broth to heat them through. I bake mine (as I do ALL pies) at 425 for 15 minutes, then turn the oven down (without opening the door)to 350 and cooking another 30 minutes. Pies are always evenly baked and never burned or too overdone or underdone.
Delicious! I sometimes make it without the crust if I'm lazy and it is still yummy.
Made this last night! It rocked! I made a few changes...I sauteed the celery with the onion and a little garlic, substituted corn for the green beans, and increased the amount of veggies a bit. Family approved recipe! Love it!
Everyone loved this Turkey pot pie. I made a homemade crust for a large pie. So good!
I've made this twice since Thanksgiving. The first time I followed the recipe exactly. It was VERY good. A bit dry. The second time I made it, I used chicken and 2 cans of veg-all since this was an after work rush dinner and didn't want to take the time to cut the veggies. I also doubled the gravy and reserved half and served it on the side. I think the chicken was prefered in my house over the turkey but it may be personal taste.
Made this and it was absolutely delicious! Changed from the pie crust to using a puff pastry for one of the pies & it was also wonderful. Will definitely make this one again & again!
I made this last night--it was super easy and MUCH tastier than the frozen pot pies you get at the store. I used a mix of cubed white meat turkey and shredded turkey leftover from boiling the turkey carcass. It's super flavorful!
I loved this recipe. No canned soup involved which I liked very much. I should have increased the liquid as I think when reheated, it could use more. The liquid really gets absorbed after being refrigerated but still very, very good. I made some extra gravy to moisten it after reheating it. This is definitely a keeper.
Looking for recipe today for leftover turkey breast and had all these ingredients on hand so made it for dinner tonite. AWESOME! I've made other pot pies and none compare to this one. I did scale the recipe down to one pie (six servings), and it was perfect. Omitted the Italian seasoning and substituted a sprinkle of thyme, used thawed mixed veggies, to which I added the celery and chopped onion and sauteed in butter. The other seasonings right on target and consistency of the filling was not runny nor too thick. Definitely making again 'cause its a keeper!
Simply Amazing! My boyfriend doesn't even really like turkey that much and we ate 1/2 the pie for dinner. I followed the recipe exactly except I only made one pie as there are only two of us, and I used celery salt as I didn't have any celery seed and only usd 1/4 tsp. I couldn't believe how quickly the flour/butter/chix broth/milk mixture thickened. This pot pie was simply amazing. I will NOT be buying frozen pot pies ever again. Thanks for a delicious and easy recipe! I was happy to use up my Thanksgiving turkey, extra chicken broth, and pie crusts on such a delicious dinner.
This is a great recipe and I modified with great results. I substituted a little olive oil in place of the butter and I only used a top crust made with vegetable oil instead of shortening. I also used sodium free chicken broth. All of this decreased the fat and calories. Excellent and will definitely make again.
I have made this several times since this past Thanksgiving and have had nothing but positive compliments! Everyone that tries these pies LOVES them and it's such an easy recipe. I love that it makes 2 huge pies also. I follow the recipe to the tee pretty much. I use chicken for the most part but used left-over turkey from Thanksgiving the first time I tried this. Either way, it's fabulous!
I made a "few" changes to use up more of our Christmas dinner leftovers. I cooked the veggies in veggie broth instead of water drained a bit of it into my mashed potatoes and the rest I used instead of the chicken broth. I stirred in my leftover gravy into the sautéd onions instead of using flour as my gravy was quite thick. As another reviewer suggested, I replaced the pie-crust with mashed potatoes. It was actually quite pretty with the ribbons of white potatoes and sweet potatoes on the top. I sprinkled paprika on top for the finishing touch. Baked it uncovered for 40 minutes at 350°. A great way to use up all the leftovers. So delicious!
soooooooo wonderful!!!! best pot pie ever!
I hve to agree with another reviewer. The thing tht really makes this recipe outstanding is the method. Sure, there are other recipes out there that might be easier and not take as much time, but it is well worth it! We really like a lot of vegetables. I added about a cup of cubed potatoes, another cup of sweet potatoes, corn, peas, carrots, celery, green beans... I also didn't have any celery seed, so I simply chopped up the celery leaves very fine and added them into the whole mixture. That certainly did the trick! I freeze my leftover turkey in chicken broth. This was the perfect way to use up that turkey! I ended up with so much filling, due to the added veggies that I made my pot pie in my large corningware oval dish. Yum, yum, yum! Great job on the recipe and the easy to follow instructions!
I made this recipe as written twice and it was a huge hit both times. I had no problems with the thickness of the filling; just make sure you simmer after adding the flour until the mixture thickens as instructed.
Really enjoyed this. It was perfect for all of the leftovers and tasted great. The only thing I did differently was not add the Italian seasoning because I did not have any. Thanks for sharing.
This was easy and delicious. I've never made pot pie before but this came out perfect with little effort. My husband and kids loved it too!
We loved this recipe!! I have been looking for a pot pie recipe like this with wonderful flavor and just the perfect creaminess. As another reviewer mentioned, using a roasted deli chicken would be great too. Thank you for sharing
Everyone loved it.
Recipe is great as is, only omitted onion. Followed as written...I make this every few weeks with chicken, now that I have no turkey left over... While it does make 2 and I've done that and freeze one, I usually make in a 9x13 to have several meals at once.
Very good. Added potatoes, because I always put potatoes in my chicken pot pies. (Used chicken instead of turkey.) Made 2 pies, with only top crust. Was out of a few of the seasonings, so added some lemon pepper seasoning, and basil. Both pies overflowed and created quite a mess in the oven, so next time I won't make them quite so full.
Made it exactly as the recipe states and it turned out unbelievably good!! Whole family loved it!!
I have never made turkey pot pie before and I saw the ratings on this so I tried it after cooking up a turkey. This was soooo good and I actually added stuffing to the mix.Yum. I thought maybe next time I would pour gravy over the top of pie.cant wait! Thx for sharing.
Best turkey pot pie recipe I have ever made (and I have probably made 6 different ones). Will make this again next year.
This is wonderful! It is the first time that I have made this and wow, it's delicious. I followed the recipe exactly and my family raved about it!
Fabulous! Halved the recipe to just make one pie for two people. Used canned vegetables instead of frozen and added some fresh carrot but didn't change anything else and it was the best I've ever had.
Awesome with leftover turkey from Christmas! Followed recipe exactly. Won't go back to frozen pies again!
my kitchen smells better today while making this pot pie than it did yesterday on thanksgiving. very, very good....
Delicious when prepared as written! Will be making this next year.
Fantastic ,rich,great flavour- wouldn't change a thing!!
Incredible. I don't think I made any changes other than subbing spelt flour for regular. Keeper.
So delicious!!! Will be making this again!! Great find!
The only change I made was to cut the recipe in half and used canned instead of frozen veggies. Very, very good. Would make again. A nice diversion from cream of anything soup.
This is by far the best turkey pot pie recipe I have ever made. My kids keep asking me to make it so now that Easter is right around the corner we are making a turkey for Easter so we can have the leftovers for this pie. I did not make any changes to the recipe it was perfect as is.
Delicious. I cut the recipe in half and used only a top crust to cut some calories. Will definitely make my favorite recipe list!
Oh my goodness! Yum, brought turkey breast just so I could make this again!
