Skillet Turkey Pot Pie

Skillet Turkey Pot Pie

This skillet turkey pot pie is a comforting and delicious way to use up your leftover Thanksgiving roasted turkey. I used some homemade turkey stock for this recipe but chicken stock or broth would work just fine. I used a store-bought pie crust because I had one on hand but homemade is great too. Pot pies are a terrific way to use up leftover meats & veggies so I not only used the leftover turkey, but I also grabbed the last bit of corn from the freezer along with some frozen peas and one small russet potato to throw in there too. I served this skillet turkey pot pie on a recent rainy day and we all thought it was so tasty and comforting.

How to Make a Skillet Turkey Pot Pie

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Cook the potatoes in boiling water for 10 minutes, or until nearly fork-tender. Drain.

Heat the butter in a 10-inch cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, carrot, and celery and cook, stirring often, for 3-4 minutes, or until nearly tender. Add the minced garlic and thyme leaves then cook, stirring constantly, for 30 seconds.

Sprinkle in the flour and cook, stirring often, for 2 minutes. Very slowly add the turkey stock then add the milk and bring to a slight boil for a minute, while whisking constantly, until a bit thickened. Season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste.

Add the drained potatoes, roasted turkey, frozen corn, and frozen peas then stir until well combined. Taste and re-season if needed.
