Skillet Turkey Pot Pie

This recipe for turkey pot pie whips easily in a cast iron skillet and makes less dishes than baking in a pie pan. The only additional dish needed is for the biscuit mix and overall this recipe is super easy to clean up.

This homemade favorite is something the whole family can agree on and the flavors have that made from scratch quality that would expect in a homemade meal.

Creating recipes with Southeastern Mills baking and gravy mixes not only makes dinner convenient and quick but there are many flavors to choose from to help make your holiday season dinners a success.

Skillet or Pie Plate

If you don’t want to use a cast iron skillet, no worries, you don’t need one! A large skillet will work just as great for creating this recipe. Once you’re ready to bake the turkey pot pie, pour the pot pie into a 9-inch pie plate and top with the biscuits for baking.

Either way in the oven it only takes between 10-13 minutes to bake.

Ingredients in Turkey Pot Pie

Leftover turkey is perfect for this dinner and a great way to use leftovers from Holiday meals. Of course, you don’t have to use leftover turkey in this recipe, you can use carved store-bought turkey and it is just as delicious!

Celery, carrots, potatoes, and onion are packed in this veggie-packed pot pie. Parsley, garlic powder, thyme, rosemary, salt, and pepper bring the flavors out in the dish but what makes turkey pot pie so delicious is the gravy.

Smothering this pot pie in Southeastern Mills Roast Turkey Gravy Mix turns this meal into a warm and comforting dinner. The mix for this gravy comes together with just water and it makes enough to fill the skillet for a creamy and delicious filling. It also makes enough to pour onto single servings if more gravy is desired.

Topping this pie filling are biscuits made using Southeastern Mills Country Biscuit Mix. Simply follow the easy to follow directions on the back of the package to make the dough. They’re easy biscuits to make and are perfect to pot on this turkey pot pie.

I flattened the dough a little bit more than the package suggested so that I could create enough biscuits to sit on top of the pot pie filling. Eight biscuits were the perfect amount for the top of my filling. The thickness of my biscuits was perfect for the crust.

Turkey Or Chicken Pot Pie

This recipe isn’t suitable for just turkey. The turkey can be swapped out for chicken and using Southeastern Mills Chicken Gravy variety instead of the turkey gravy mix. Buttermilk biscuits in lieu of country biscuits are another way to switch the flavors up in this pot pie.

If you use chicken, either used fully cooked chopped chicken or cook the chicken in the skillet before adding in any veggies or gravy mixes.
