The ONLY reason I gave 4 stars is because I did change this quite a bit. I took nearly everyones' suggestions adding 2 teaspoons herbs du provance, at least 1.5 tsps garlic powder, increasing pepper to .5 tsp and salt to 1.5 teaspoons. added .5 tsp nutmeg. Increased flour to 2/3 cup as spouse likes thicker filling. Increased onion to 1.5 cups (we LOVE onions). Instead of the pie crusts, used deep dish and covered filling with puff pastry. I would suggest experimenting with different herbs and meats. This is such a good, basic recipe that we're only limited by our imagination. Thanks very much, Heidi, for sharing this.
I made this during a OAMC session and had it last night for dinner. The taste was excellent! It froze and cooked very well. For OAMC, I prepped it and froze raw, cooked for a few additional minutes (about 15) and watched the crust.
Wow what a great recipe. It was quick and easy to make with terrific results. I added onions, corn, peas and dried cranberries to the turkey meat for a delicious meat pie. Just the right amount of butter and turkey stock gravy. For seasonings I added more salt and pepper than called for and some ground sage and rosemary, it worked perfectly in this recipe. Thank you so much for sharing this lovely recipe, that I will use again. Made for What's on the Menu Tag Game 2014.
This was good but needed more seasoning for us. I didn't have frozen veggies so I used a mixture of canned. I also used two big cans of chicken because I forgot to pull my cooked chicken from the freezer. I followed the rest of the recipe as written other then I didn't add the salt because my chicken broth was salty enough. I think this could have used some onion and garlic powder and more pepper. Mine cooked for 30 minutes. We enjoyed this but would add the other seasonings when I make again. I loved that this didn't use any canned soups.
Wow this was great! I made it in a deep dish pie tin and it turned out perfect!
Used left over turkey to make this recipe, and it was so good! It was pretty simple to make, too. Thank you Ms. Swanson for a tasty recipe, it's going into my cookbook.
this was a great day for day 2 for our turkey leftovers! Made as directed but only had frozen peas, so that is what we used. Thanks for sharing this keeper!
The three of us who ate this thought it was great! I used 2.5 cups of diced chicken and about the same amount of frozen mixed veggies, and some extra pepper. I thought it was an excellent compromise between from scratch and short cut cooking. This goes into the keeper file!
LOVED THIS!! Made it exactly as directed but added a dash of garlic powder and celery salt. Best pot pie I've ever had. Will definitely make again! Thanks for a great, easy recipe!!
wow, I really wish I was able to give 4.5 stars for this, as it was really good! I did use homemade crust and I didn't measure out the veggies, I just steamed a whole bag of frozen veggies and threw it all in. We used smoked turkey breast, as that's what we had on hand. A keeper!
