Nothing beats a homemade turkey pot pie filled with leftover turkey, vegetables, and spices! Sweet potatoes and green peas add a slight sweetness to this version of pot pie.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Press pie crust pastry into the bottom of a 10-inch pie dish; reserve top crust.

  • Heat canola oil in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion, carrots, celery, parsley, oregano, salt, and black pepper until vegetables are slightly tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in 1 tablespoon butter until melted. Pour in chicken broth and bring to a boil. Add sweet potato; simmer until tender, about 15 minutes. Stir in peas; reduce heat to low.

  • Melt remaining 1 tablespoon butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat; cook and stir turkey and flour until turkey is heated through, about 5 minutes. Pour milk into saucepan with turkey and bring to a simmer. Transfer turkey sauce to vegetable mixture and continue to cook until thickened, about 10 minutes more. Remove from heat and allow to cool.

  • Bake bottom crust in preheated oven until lightly browned, about 8 minutes. Allow to cool for 5 minutes; pour turkey and vegetable mixture into crust. Roll reserved top crust over turkey filling and pinch edges to seal. Cut four slits in the top crust for steam to escape.

  • Return to oven and bake for 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and continue to bake until crust is golden brown, about 10 minutes more.

Cook's Note:

Feel free to add in any other veggies like corn or green beans. Also, I enjoy the sweet potatoes but you can use regular potatoes as well.

This recipe is great! Although a bit more work than some of the other recipes I found it's well worth it! I used frozen and thawed turkey left over from Christmas so the turkey didn't exactly stay in perfect cubes. I added garlic to the onions and used more sweet potatoes than in the recipe. I found that after adding the turkey sauce to the vegetables it all thickened in less than 5 minutes. It did take a long time to cool though. I had 2 frozen pies shells in foil pans which I had made before Christmas and these worked perfectly for this recipe. Read More

This was pot pie was delicious. I would add a little less oregano next time and maybe a bit of poultry seasoning. The consistency of the vegetables and turkey was perfect. Great recipe! Read More

Love the sweet potato! I would have added more flour for a thicker sauce and not precooked the bottom of the crust because it was so hard to put the top crust without it separating Read More

I made this exactly per recipe and it was VERY dry. Almost all of the liquids cooked out and there was no sauce. It was very flavorful and I will make it again, but will use extra liquid and less flour. I will also take the extra 15 mins to make a fresh crust - store bought just didn’t quite cut it. Read More
