    Why would it become watery after baking?

    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.

    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 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.

I live in northern Illinois. I work as a Medical Transcriptionist, am also a church organist. I love to cook and bake, knit and sew. I have been the organizer for the churchs fall bazaar luncheon for the past few years. It's wonderful to hear how much everyone likes the food and especially when they ask for the recipes! I try recipes from RecipeZaar out on the guys at work - they love it! They are my guinea pigs (testers) for the church bazaar meal.
