Light Turkey Pot Pie

(4 Votes)
50 Min

Frozen pot pies are often full of artificial flavors and preservatives. When you make them fresh at home you can be sure you'll be serving only the best!

What You'll Need

  • 1 3/4 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 (10-ounce) package frozen peas and carrots, thawed
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 (12-ounce) can evaporated skim milk
  • 3 cups cubed cooked turkey breast (about 1 pound) (fresh-cooked or deli-style)
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground sage
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 sheets, (12-inch x 17-inch each) frozen phyllo dough (from a 1-pound box)
  • Cooking spray

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degree F. Coat a 7" x 11" baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine broth, onions, and peas and carrots combination. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat; reduce heat to low and simmer 5 minutes.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine cornstarch and evaporated milk; stir until cornstarch is dissolved and mixture is smooth. Slowly stir milk mixture into broth. Add turkey, parsley, sage, and pepper. Continue cooking, stirring constantly, until mixture has thickened then pour into prepared baking dish. 
  4. Cut sheets of phyllo dough in half crosswise. Place one sheet over turkey mixture, tucking edges down into turkey mixture to seal completely. Coat dough with cooking spray. Repeat layers until all the phyllo dough is used.
  5. Bake 40 to 45 minutes, or until crust is golden.


Allow the phyllo dough to thaw while wrapped. Once it has thawed, remove 3 sheets from the package and cover them with a moistened cloth until ready to use, to keep them from drying out. Wrap and refrigerate the remaining dough.

Herb Crusted Lamb with Mint Sauce

Instead of cooking ham or prime rib for Easter, why not try something new this year? Our Herb-Crusted Lamb with Mint Sauce may look and sound fancy, but it's really easy to do. It's basically a rack of lamb that's coated with herbs and spices before it's roasted to perfection. Just before serving, it's finished off with a mint-wine reduction. The end result is an Easter-worthy main dish that'll impress everyone at the table.
