Curried turkey pot pie is about as comforting as comfort food gets. It’s full of flavor and because they’re a single serving size, they bake up quickly.
Even though we had several people join in our Thanksgiving feast, it just wouldn’t be the same without leftovers. And despite everyone’s best efforts, there were plenty of leftovers. My parents sent us home with a giant plate of turkey, an entire pie and the trimmings. But, as much as I love a simple turkey sandwich on white bread, this much turkey needed to be used up before it went bad.
I had seen a show the other day where the chef made a curried chicken pot pie and knew that’s what I would be doing with my Thanksgiving day leftovers. This was warm and cozy not to mention incredibly flavorful. This turkey pot pie really hit the spot.
I may even need to steal some more leftover turkey to make another one.
Some of my readers will note that cilantro made it to my list of ingredients. No, I did not use any cilantro in my pot pies (yes, I still hate it), however, I believe it would really add to the flavor and compliment this dish very well.
