  • Before serving, allow your pie to rest for about 10 minutes.
  • Place a cookie sheet with a lip under your baking dish and line it with aluminum foil for easy clean-up. This is just in case your pot pie bubbles over!
  • Use a 12-inch skillet (oven-safe).
  • The best way to flatten your stuffing for a nice crust is to use a rolling pin!

Why I Love this Recipe!

  • It's a great way to use up leftovers!
  • Easy to make and perfect for a quick yet filling and hearty dinner.

  • Onions and celery
  • All-purpose flour
  • Chicken broth and heavy cream
  • Peas and carrots—or veggies of your choice!
  • Turkey!!
  • Stuffing

PREP TIME: 30 mins; COOK TIME: 15 mins; TOTAL TIME: 45 mins


  • 4 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 1 medium-sized onion, chopped
  • 2 stalks of celery, chopped
  • 3 tbsp. flour
  • 2 C. chicken broth
  • ½ C. heavy cream
  • 1 C. room-temperature peas and carrots (take out of the freezer and allow to defrost)
  • 4 1/2 C turkey, shredded or cut up into bite-size pieces
  • 3 1/2 C stuffing
  • 1 large egg, beaten


  • Set your oven to 475 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Using a cast iron skillet (which needs to be oven-safe), add your butter and melt over medium heat.
  • Toss in your onions and celery and sauté till just tender.
  • Sprinkle your flour over the top of the onions and celery, and cook the flour-coated veggies for about 1 minute.
  • Pour in the broth and cream and simmer until thick; it should take around 7-9 minutes.
  • Next, toss in your shredded turkey, peas, and carrots. Combine until everything is well coated.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, add your stuffing and egg. Mix until well blended (I use my hands).
  • Using two pieces of parchment paper, add your stuffing in between the sheets, and using your rolling pin, flatten the stuffing. The roll is large enough to cover the top of the skillet. Do your best to roll the stuffing into a circle.
  • When your crust is done, take the top piece of parchment paper and flip it on top of the skillet. Don't worry, mine is never perfect; it's rustic; go with it! If you have any stuffing hanging over the side, trim it off.
  • Place in the oven and bake until the top is golden brown and the filling is bubbly, around 15–20 minutes.
