Good Cook gave us a challenge to turn out Thanksgiving leftovers into a usable recipe. I chose to make a classic – Turkey Pot Pie using leftover pie crust, turkey wings, our veggie tray leftovers and a few slices of sharp cheddar cheese leftover from out bread and cheese tray. The result is amazingly good.
It seems like the most unused portion of the turkey is always the wings. No one eats them so they are always left over. Thing is, those wings have a lot of meat on them and shouldn’t go to waste. So my pot pie focused on using that leftover wing meat.
You can use any pie crust or your own recipe. I just used leftover pie crust I didn’t use for Thanksgiving since we ended up buying pies.
You will need a can of cream of chicken soup, not a leftover item.
We used a Gook Cook 9″ nonstick Pie Pan to make this pot pie. This was my first experience using a Good Cook pie pan and I was very happy with it. Not only was it the perfect size for what I was using it for but it is truly non stick and when the pie was cooked it could have easily been popped out onto a large plate.
Start out by chopping left over vegetables from your veggie tray. We had leftover celery and carrots so that’s what we used but you could also put in leftover mashed potatoes.
Tear the meat from the turkey wings and cut into chunks. Saute with chopped veggies and 1 can of cream of chicken soup with 1/2 cup water. Add chopped cheese at last minute, stir for a couple minutes and then pour mixture into lined pie dish like in the picture.
Place another piece of pie crust on top and roll the edges and then use a fork to seal them. Bake on 350 for 30 minutes or until pie crust is golden brown.
