Easy Turkey Pot Pie

I'm happy to share that my recipe for Hot Cinnamon Milk Mix was featured last week at Foodie Friday.  If you haven't checked out that simple 4-ingredient recipe yet, you don't want to miss this opportunity to do that. I gave many pkgs. away for Christmas gifts and have received raves and requests for the recipe.


Trust you all enjoyed (& survived!!) your Christmas weekend.
Here's a great idea to use up some leftover turkey, or chicken...


Oh how I love pot pie - it's such comfort food for me.

This is an easy and delicious meal that can be made with turkey OR chicken.

I think it's always comforting for me to eat because when I was a kid, my mama would purchase frozen pot pies on sale for 5/$1 and we always loved them.

(It was one of the rare things mom bought from the store pre-made!)  She made everything from scratch otherwise.

I'm not sure they're still making the bottom crust in most store purchased pot pies...it's one of those ways they've 'cut corners',
but I sure do remember enjoying that crust.


This recipe has a 'pour on' top crust that is wonderful.  We rarely add salt to our dishes, but we do use a lot of pepper, so I like peppering the crust before baking. 

You can change up the kind of soup or use your favorite vegetables.
You can even add some shredded cheese if you prefer.

I added leftover 'ultimate' creamed corn from Thanskgiving and it added a creamy touch to this already tasty dish.

Any way you fix it - it'll be tasty for sure.

If your family is larger, just make a double batch and bake it in a
9" X 13" pan.

EASY TURKEY POT PIE

1 (10-3/4 ozs.) can cream of chicken soup
(regular or 98% fat free)
2 Tb. milk
1 (9 ozs) pkg. frozen mixed vegetables, thawed
(about a heaping cup)
1 c. cooked turkey or chicken, cubed
onion salt to taste
1/2 c. milk
1 egg
1 c. all purpose baking mix
(like Bisquick)

Preheat oven to 400. Combine soup, 2 Tb. milk, veggies, turkey and onion salt; pour into greased 9" pie plate.  In small bowl, combine milk, egg and baking mix.  Pour over vegetable mixture and bake for 30 minutes; peppering crust if you'd like. May add any herbs to turkey mixture to spice it up to your liking.
