Turkey/Chicken Pot Pie




I don't post a lot of savory recipes but this recipe I really liked and I was organized enough to photograph it.   It also helped it made enough to feed my husband and I for two+ meals so I had extras to photograph.    This year I might try and put on a few more savory recipes,  being at home with my little one I want to try some new recipes and plan more.  My husband recently changed our cabinets in our mudroom where I store 80% of my cookbooks.  To do this I had to take all my cookbooks out, so before I put them back in I am going to go through and make a list of recipes I have to make this year.  I will keep you posted on my Top 20 savory and sweet dishes I must make in 2013.





Turkey or Chicken Pot Pie

INGREDIENTS:
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1/2 cup small chopped carrot
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken stock
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 3 tbsps olive oil
  • 3 tbsp flour
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 1/3 cup frozen corn
  • 1/3 cup frozen edamame
  • 1 medium sweet potato
  • 1 1/2 - 2 cups cooked shredded turkey (or chicken)
  • Pilsbury Bisquits

INSTRUCTIONS:
1) In a 5qt heavy bottom pot ( I used my Le Creuset), heat 2 tbsp of olive oil over medium heat.   Add onion and carrot cooking, stirring occasionally for 5 minutes until onions become translucent and carrots soften. 
2) Add garlic and thyme and cook a few more minutes
3) Add the remaining olive oil and flour, cook a few minutes stirring together to create a roux.  Increase heat to medium-high and add milk and stock. Stirring constantly until mixture begins to thicken.
4) Cook sweet potato in the microwave for 4 minutes to partial cook it. Chop it up into 1 inch cubes. You can remove skin if you like, it should peel off easily.
5) Add frozen vegetables, sweet potato and turkey.  Stir to combine.
6) Preheat the oven to 375. Open the bisquits and cover the mixture with the bisquit dough.
7) Bake for 20 minutes until bisquits are golden on top.

I might have to make this more often.  I really enjoyed this and fairly healthy chocked full of lean meat and vegetables (minus the bisquit topping).
