Leftover turkey pot pie.

wpid-screenshot_2014-11-30-10-52-12_1.jpgOne way to use up your leftover Thanksgiving turkey meat is to make a turkey pot pie. This comforting pie is loaded with healthy tender vegetables like carrots, onions, celery, peas, and potatoes all baked inside a flaky golden brown crust. The gravy inside is made by simmering the vegetables in it, which makes it really flavorful.

⅓ cup unsalted butter
3 stalks celery, chopped
1 small yellow onion, chopped
4 carrots, chopped
1 cup frozen peas
1 potato, peeled and chopped
3 tbsp all-purpose flour
2 cups cooked turkey, chopped
½ tsp salt
½ tsp ground black pepper
¼ tsp onion powder
1¼ cups chicken broth
½ cup milk
2 9-inch pie crusts

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat and add the chopped celery and onions. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add the carrots, potatoes and peas and stir.
Add the flour and stir until well combined, then cook for 3 more minutes.
Add the turkey, salt, pepper, onion powder, and chicken broth and bring to a boil. Lower the heat to low and stir in the milk. The mixture should thicken while it simmers, about 7 minutes. If it is too runny, you can add more flour.
Pour the mixture into a pie dish covered with one of the pie crusts, and top with the other pie crust.
Bake in the oven for 30 minutes, until the crust is golden brown
