  • 2 Potatoes peeled and cubed
  • 2 Carrots peeled and sliced or diced
  • 2 Celery Stalks diced
  • 1 medium Onion Diced
  • 1 Turkey Soup Kit or 1 cup Cooked Turkey and 1 1/2 cups Turkey Broth
  • 1/2 cup Frozen Peas thawed
  • 1/4 cup Flour

Instructions

  • Place the olive oil in large pan. Add the diced potatoes, onions, carrots, and celery to the pot.
  • Cook over medium heat until vegetables are slightly softened about 10 minutes.
  • Sprinkle the vegetables with flour and stir in well.
  • Slowly add the broth and stir well so there are no lumps.
  • Add in the peas, seasonings and cooked turkey. Stir to combine and cook until thickened.
  • Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Place one of the pie crust into the bottom of the pie pan and press into place.
  • Add the cooked pot pie filling.
  • Top with the other pie crust and crimp to seal, cut a few slits for venting.
  • Bake 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until heated through and golden brown.
  • Let cool about 5 minutes and enjoy.

Notes

I use my homemade turkey soup kits to make the turkey pot pie. But canned or boxed broth along with cooked turkey or chicken will work in this recipe too.
