Helpful hints

  • To reduce potassium in potatoes use the Double Cook method. Peel and dice potatoes into 1” pieces. Boil in a large pot of water for 10 minutes. Drain the water and add fresh water to the pot. Bring to a boil and cook until potatoes are tender. 
  • Use a refrigerated, prepared pie crust if desired. Look for the lowest sodium brand.
  • For a lower fat and calorie version make half the pastry and use to top pie ingredients instead of the double pastry version.

Turkey Pot Pie

The first time I tried this recipe, as others stated all the liquid evaporated. This year I used 1 cup of Chicken Broth and 1 cup of sour cream, I did use a store bought pie crust. Everything else was as followed by the recipe. It was very creamy and delicious. Dietitian comment: Thanks for sharing your changes and the outcome. I plan to redo the recipe with these changes. Did you replace the 3/4 cup milk with the 1 cup sour cream? Or was it in addition?

Can't really give it 5 stars, because I haven't tried the recipe yet. Can I use Rice Milk instead of the 1% Low Fat Milk? Dietitian comment: Yes rice milk should work.

Would substituting ground pork that has been will drained change the values much. Dietitian comment: The fat content will be higher. Other nutrients will be similar.

I made this using chicken instead of turkey and I used corn instead of potatoes. I also made halved the crust recipe and made one crust instead of the double crust. It was pretty tasty. My husband is on the renal diet so I try to find recipes that will be tasty for both of us. This one will be a keeper. I would rate it a four except that the filling was a little dry (i.e. the gravy was absorbed by the veggies and chicken, I guess) and it's a little more time consuming than I care for.

For those looking to use a non-hydrogenated shortening, you can use Spectrum. It's organic, vegan, non-hydrogenated, gluten free and kosher. it's not cheap, but worth the price.

This is one of my favorite recipes. I might try to make it creamier next time. I agree that it was not creamy enough, but all in all a great recipe.

Used turkey left over from thanksgiving, tasted great. Will probably use a bit more broth and nondairy creamer next time for a creamier pie.
