One-Pot Wonder: Turkey pot pie has never been easier

Pot pie is like traditional American comfort food. Thing is, I never had it until my college years. Growing up in an Italian-American household, comfort food meant bowls of pasta, not pot pies. So I never really knew what I was missing until approximately 20 years or so into life. One bite into my first pot pie experience, and I finally understood the hype.

Pot pie is creamy, comforting, filling and, if that isn’t enough, topped with flaky, buttery biscuits. Um, yes. While I’d never be able to dismiss a bowl of pasta, I will say pot pie definitely gives it a run for its money in the comfort food department.

This one-skillet version uses ground turkey instead of the traditional chicken and pairs it with fresh sage for an almost Thanksgiving-like flavor profile, but I can guarantee you this: It’s still as decadently delicious as you remember it.

Skillet turkey sage pot pie recipe

Serves 4

Prep time: 10 minutes | Cook time: 30 minutes | Inactive time: 5-10 minutes | Total time: 45-50 minutes


  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 ribs celery, chopped
  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1-1/4 cups chicken broth

  1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Heat a 10- to 12-inch cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat.
  3. Once the skillet is hot, add the turkey, and cook until browned. Transfer to a plate, and drain the fat from the skillet.
  4. In the same skillet, melt the butter, and then add the celery and onions. Cook until softened, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  5. Add the flour, and toss to coat the vegetables.
  6. Whisk in the chicken broth and milk until slightly thickened.
  7. Add the sage, mixed vegetables and cooked turkey to the skillet. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and stir until mixed.
  8. Place the biscuits on top of the mixture, and then transfer the skillet to the oven for about 15 minutes, until the biscuits are cooked and turn golden brown.
  9. Remove from the oven, and let stand for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
