Southern Turkey Pot Pie Recipe

By Kathy Smith

Turkey Pot Pie Ingredients:

3-4 lb turkey, diced into sections or pieces

Pie dough (see below)

1/4 cup butter

Salt and pepper

1 cup whole milk (do not use non-fat milk)

4 cups turkey stock

8" baking dish or pie pan


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Put the pieces of turkey in a big pot and add just enough water to cover the top of the turkey. Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat to med-low and slowly boil until the meat is shredding. As the turkey cooks, you may prepare the pie dough and butter the baking dish.

Cut the pie dough in half and then roll out one half to just about 1/8 inch thick. Gingerly place the rolled out dough in the bottom of the dish. If there is any leftover dough, cut it from the edges of the dish and reserve.

Put shredded turkey in the dish and also the remaining pie dough. If possible, layer the turkey and the remaining pie dough. Pour in the milk and distribute with 2 tbsp of butter. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.

Now take the second half of the dough and roll into a long 1/4 inch thick rectangle. Dice the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter into little pats and distribute along the dough. Fold the dough in thirds and roll out. Repeat. This ensures that the butter is blended into the pie dough. Roll out into a thin circle and cover the bottom half of the pie. Squeeze the edges together and then cut a hole in the top to let steam to vent.

Bake the turkey pot pie in your oven for 35-45 min until the juices are bubbling and the crust is lightly browned.

Pie Dough Recipe

2 cups flour

1 tsp salt
1 cup butter, diced into small pieces or shortening

3/4 cup of ice water


In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt and then work the butter lightly into
the flour using either two forks or a pastry blender. When the flour mixture resembles coarse meal, slowly pour in the ice water and combine just until the pie dough can hold together. Don't over mix, or else the pie dough will get "gummy". Cover in plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for 60 min in order to "relax".
