Turkey or Chicken Pot Pie - Great for the Leftovers!

Do you have leftover Turkey from Christmas? This Pot Pie recipe is perfect on these chilly nights! Even if you are spending the winter in the warm south, this is great comfort food! It is a great time to bust out that turkey and fill the kitchen with that wonderful smell again! You could also use leftover chicken or rotisserie chicken. This is a quick and easy recipe (even I can make it!) and it bakes beautifully in the convection oven.


Left over Turkey or Chicken cut into chunks
2 Refrigerated pie crusts
2 cups vegetables of choice - carrots, celery, onions, peas, broccoli, etc.
1 cup Alfredo sauce - I just use from the jar
1/2 cup milk with 1 tablespoon flour
2/3 cup Swiss cheese

1.  Preheat convection oven to 375 degrees. Take pie crusts out of refrigerator to soften a bit before use. Put 1 refrigerated pie crust into bottom of pie pan and poke holes in the bottom. Bake at 375 degrees for 6-8 minutes. I use Low Mix.

2.  In a large saucepan combine turkey, vegetables, Alfredo sauce, and milk mixture over medium heat. Stir until it is hot and bubbly and starts to thicken. Remove from heat and let cool slightly. Stir in Swiss cheese.

3. Pour all ingredients into baked pie crust.  Top with 2nd pie crust and press edges together. Cut 4-8 slits in the top of the pie crust. If desired beat one egg and brush it lightly over the entire crust. This will give you a nice, shiny brown crust.

4.  Bake at 375 degrees for about 30 minutes or until bubbly.  Enjoy!

Yummy, good comfort food! What is your favorite "comfort food" that you turn to when cold, tired, or missing home?
