This filling is also wonderful served over baked puff pastry shells or Texas toast instead of baking in a pie shell --- make two and freeze one for another meal! to save time you may cook the potatoes a day ahead and refrigerate, since the bouillon powder has a high sodium content do not add in any salt until the end of cooking ;-)

  1. Fit one pastry into the bottom of a 9 or 10-inch deep-dish pie plate; set aside.
  2. In a large skillet heat 1/3 cup butter over medium heat; add in onion, garlic, celery, thyme and cayenne (if using) cook for about 4 minutes.

  4. Slowly add in the chicken broth and heavy cream; heat stirring with a wooden spoon until bubbly and thickened.
  5. Add in cooked turkey and frozen vegetables; simmer over low heat for about 15 minutes.
  6. Mix in cooked cubed potatoes, then season with black pepper and a little salt to taste (you may omit the salt if desired).
  7. Pour the mixture into the pie shell.
  8. Roll one pastry over top, seal and and flute the edges as desired.
  9. Using a small sharp knife make 3 slits into the top of the crust.
  10. Place the pie onto a baking sheet.

This was so good! I did make a couple of changes...I forgot to add garlic, but will add it next time. I left out the cayenne because I was in a hurry and couldn't find it. I think my family would like it in there, though. I also threw in our leftover turkey gravy...It was nice to find a use for it since we don't normally eat leftover gravy. I used Kittencal's no fail pie crust with this and I can't wait to make it again. It's been years since we stopped eating processed food, but I have fond memories of eating frozen pot pies as a kid. This was such a comfort food!

Fantastic. I doubled the filling, put it in a 13 X 9 pan, and used only a top crust because I don't like bottom crust on chicken pot pie. It was delicious. I used the Martha Stewart "no fail" pie crust recipe (also found on this site) and rolled out the whole double crust to fit over the top of the 9 X 13 pan. Worked perfectly, and the filling was delicious.
