Turkey Pot Pie

Ok, normally, i make Chicken Pot Pie. Not Turkey. But i had a pound or so of Turkey Breast Cutlets in the freezer that i could use. So i found this dish in my "Better Homes & Gardens Cookbook" (truly one of my most used wedding gifts!) & tried it. They call it "One Dish Turkey & Biscuits". I call it "Turkey Pot Pie". Same difference. :)

This was delicious. And really- it'd be a good use of your Thanksgiving Turkey leftovers. :)

One-Dish Turkey & Biscuits

1 cup Chicken Broth
1/2 cup finely chopped onion (1 medium onion)
1/2 cup finely chopped celery (1 stalk)
1 1/2 cups frozen peas & carrots
1 1/2 cups milk
3 T all-purpose flour
2 cups cubed cooked turkey breast
1/2 tsp dried sage, crushed
1/8 tsp black pepper
1 1/4 packaged biscuit mix (i used Grands instead. See my note at the bottom.)
2 tsp dried parsley flakes, crushed

1. In medium saucepan, stir together broth, onion & celery. Bring to boiling, reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 5 minutes. Add peas & carrots; return to boiling.

2. In a smal bowl, stir together 1 cup of the milk & flour until smooth; stir into vegetable mixture in saucepan. Cook & stir until thickened & bubbly. Stir in turkey, sage, & pepper. Transfer to a 2-quart casserole dish.

3. In a small bowl, combine biscuit mix, the remaining 1/2 cup milk & the parsley. Stir with a fork until moistened. Spoon biscuit mixture into 8 mounds on top of the hot turkey mixture in the casserole dish. Bake, uncovered, at 425 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown.*

*Instead of using a biscuit mix, i used one of those rolls of 8 biscuits. Grands, reduced fat is what i used. You know, over where they keep the cookie dough. :P This eliminates the beginning of step 3. I just put my 8 Grands biscuits on top of the turkey mixture & maked until the biscuits were golden brown, about 15 minutes. The turkey part is already done, so it's okay that you don't do the 20-25 minutes.

Nutritional Info here. Please note that the nutritional info does NOT include the biscuits.


So good!!!! Enjoy!

  1. If you can find them, get the "Pots, Pans & Pioneers" Cookbooks. They were published in Louisiana, and most of the recipes therein are from LA residents - mainly a bunch of old grannies - so you know it's good stuff!!! These came out when were were kids!
    I have some, but I'm having them shipped to me overseas!!! hehehehe, soon as I get them, I'll send you some of my recipes.

    I have a really good Chicken Marsala recipe I found. Very rich, very good, and not diet friendly at all!!! But so worth it!
