Ok, so this really isn't a pot pie. But it has the filling that is similar to a pot pie and with a pot pie, the crust has SO many calories. This recipe was given to me from a friend and titled, Turkey Ala King. As I was making it, I added and changed several things to liven it up a bit and decided that it would make a fantastic pot pie filling. But who actually needs the pie?! The quinoa on the side was perfect with this. The husband poured his over a baked potato. I made mine with turkey as I still had a bag in the freezer but this could just as easily be made with chicken.
Crustless Turkey or Chicken Pot Pie
1 large onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1 jalapeno, chopped
1 tbsp. garlic
1/2 cup I Can't Believe It's Not Butter
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
Salt and pepper
4 chicken bouillion cubes
1/2 tsp. poultry seasoning
1/8 tsp. allspice
1 1/2 cups milk, 1 %
1 cup hot water
2 cups chopped turkey or chicken
2 cups of small frozen mixed veggies (mine were carrots, peas, green beans, corn and lima beans)
Saute onions, jalapeno and green pepper in butter for 5 minutes. Add garlic and saute for 1 -2 more minutes. Blend in flour, cook for 1 minute. Add seasoning, allspice, salt and pepper and bouillion cubes. Add water and milk slowly and stir to combine. Add turkey and mixed veggies. Continue to cook for 10 - 15 minutes until hot and thickened. I liked mine thick, if it is too thick, just add a bit more water. Season with more salt and pepper to taste. Serve over noodles, mashed potatoes or quinoa.
