Turkey Pot Pie

Thanksgiving always comes with left overs!  This is a great recipe to use all that left over turkey!

Ingredients

  • 6 tsp. olive oil, divided use
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 medium carrots, chopped
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms (approx. 4 oz.)
  • 2 Tbsp. whole-wheat flour
  •  cups reduced fat (2%) milk
  • 1 cup low-sodium organic chicken broth
  • ½ tsp. sea salt or Himalayan salt
  • ½ tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp. fresh thyme, finely chopped
  • ¾ cup frozen green peas
  • ¾ cup cubed cooked sweet potatoes
  •  cups cubed cooked light/dark turkey meat, no skin, approx. 12 oz.
  • 6 sheets phyllo dough (each approx. 12 x 17-inches), thawed, covered in a slightly damp towel

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375° F.
  2. Heat 2 tsp. oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat.
  3. Add onion and carrots; cook, stirring frequently, for 4 to 5 minutes, or until onion is translucent.
  4. Add mushrooms; cook, stirring frequently, for 4 to 6 minutes, or until mushrooms are soft and most of the liquid has evaporated.
  5. Add 1 tsp. oil; cook, stirring frequently, for 1 minute.
  6. Add flour; cook, stirring frequently, for 1 to 2 minutes, or until flour and oil form a paste.
  7. Slowly add milk, broth, salt, pepper, and thyme. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to medium-low.
  8. Add peas, sweet potatoes, and chicken (or turkey); cook, stirring frequently, for 2 minutes.

  9. Place chicken mixture in a 2½-quart baking dish. Set aside.
  10. Place phyllo on work surface. Keeping the original stack covered, remove one sheet at a time and quickly brush with remaining 3 tsp. oil. Cut oiled stack of phyllo into quarters. Place phyllo loosely on top of chicken mixture; covering evenly.
  11. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until chicken (or turkey) mixture is bubbling and phyllo dough is golden brown.
