Stove Top Turkey Pot Pie With Dumplings
Don’t through away those leftovers! “Turkey or Chicken Pot Pie” is a family favorite.
This comforting classic is easy to make and I guarantee it will be gone before you know.
Leftover Turkey (4-6 cups or amount desired) cut into cubes
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
1 cup cooked carrots
1 cup cooked peas
2 cups leftover gravy
Leftover – cooked potatoes or any vegetables chopped into small cubes (if desired)
1/2 – 1 cup milk or cream
1 tbsp Olive oil or Margarine
3 cups Bisquick or other biscuit mix
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp chopped parsley
1/2 tsp paprika
1 tbsp melted margarine
1 1/2 cups milk
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (or any you prefer)
In a very large oven proof skillet or dutch oven, saute onions and celery in oil until tender.
Add all ingredients (except Dumpling ingredients) and cook on low – med for about 10-15 minutes.
Reduce to low, taste and add seasonings if desired. Add more gravy to thicken if needed.
Meanwhile, make the Dumplings by mixing all ingredients in a large bowl. This should look like a very thick pancake dough.
With a large spoon that measures 1/4 – 1/2 cup, drop the dough into the cooked turkey mixture in even amounts that cover the pan.
Add any leftover stuffing if desired in between the dumplings. Cook the dumplings in the pan for about 10 minutes.
The dough will sink into the gravy but it will double in size as it cooks.
Shake the pan gently so the gravy doesn’t stick but don’t break up the dumplings. You’ll notice the dumplings will cook from bottom up.
After 10 minutes, place the pan in the oven on Broil. Leave the oven door slightly open and let the dumplings get golden brown.
Take the pan out of the oven and lift one dumpling to see if it’s cooked through.
If you see the dough is still raw, cook the pot pie on stove top at medium heat for a few more minutes, or in the oven at 400 degrees until the dumpling is fully cooked. Serve with any leftover sides such as the stuffing or vegetables! This will keep in Refrigerator for 2 days. Heat up in oven or microwave.
