I don’t know about you but Thanksgiving leftovers may be my favorite part of Thanksgiving dinner (besides the whole spending time with family thing). They’re definitely my favorite part of hosting Thanksgiving dinner! Like many of you I’m sure, when I was younger I used to make Thanksgiving leftover sandwiches. You know with the turkey, cranberry sauce, maybe some mayo, and a little stuffing all wrapped up in a couple slices of whole wheat bread. Since I’m no longer a bread eater, the sandwich idea is kind of off the table. But of course, this non-bread-eating lady had to find another way to repurpose those leftovers!

My Creamy Chicken Pot Pie Soup recipe is one of the most popular recipes on the blog (rightfully so if you ask me because it’s delicious!). And not to toot my own horn or anything but my pie crust is the real frickin’ deal! So I thought why not put them together? Genius, right!?!?

This Turkey Pot Pie reminds me of the turkey pot pie I used to order at Marie Calender’s except without the gluten, dairy and icky (probably partially hydrogenated) oils. This bad boy has all the creaminess and flavor but without grains, eggs, nuts, seeds, hydrogenated oils, eggs, dairy, gluten or any additives or other garbage. So basically (pretty much) everyone can enjoy this!

If making crust from scratch is a little much for a weeknight dinner, I get it. It definitely takes a little extra time and energy and you probably just want to relax and spend time with your family after working all day. If that’s the case, you should check out my Chicken Pot Pie Soup instead. It’s delicious and is more than easy enough for a weeknight dinner. And it’s kid approved! BONUS!
