So on my quest to use up all of the Thanksgiving leftovers, I took one of our favorite classics, chicken pie, and swapped in some turkey. This is a delicious recipe. If you want to make it ahead, just make the filling and refrigerate, making the topping the night of dinner and then baking.
Preheat oven to 350 F.
1. For the filling: In a large skillet, melt the butter. Add the onions and carrots. Season with salt and pepper. Cook on medium heat for 15 minutes or until tender. If the onions appear to be cooking too fast, reduce the heat to medium low. Stir periodically.
2. Add the flour to the pan; stir. Allow the flour to “cook” with the onion and carrots for 2 minutes.
3. Slowly add the broth to the pan while stirring. You want to do this very slowly in order to avoid lumps.
4. Add the milk to the pan. Reduce heat to low. Simmer for 10 minutes.
5. Add the turkey and peas to the pan. Stir to combine and allow to heat through.
6. In a large mixing bowl, combine the topping ingredients and stir to combine.
7. Place the filling into a 9×9 baking dish that is at least 3 inches deep. Top with you stuffing mix.
8. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
9. Serve while hot.
Now, I am not a casserole kinda gal, but when confronted with a plethora of leftover turkey from Thanksgiving, I will bow to the gods of one-dish meals. I did some research from famous chefs and their versions of tetrazzini and got a good idea of where I needed to focus. Then I raided the refrigerator. My goal was to not have to purchase anything to make this meal, yet make it extremely tasty. This is the outcome.
I love couscous and could eat it in some variation nearly every day. Not everyone in my household feels this way (I won’t mention the “he” who shall be nameless). In an effort to make couscous a little bit “tastier” to some folks, I thought this quick and easy casserole might hit the spot. This would be a great side dish to any meal or if you are going meatless eat this all by itself!
Tacos … check! Chicken … check! Together in a casserole … check, check! Three of my favorite things all wrapped up into one sensational dish. And I do mean sensational. This is one easy and really tasty casserole that I will be making again and again at my house. I hope you love it as much as we do.
