1 1/2 pounds
turkey breast, cooked and cubed
potatoes, peeled and cubed
frozen green peas
1 (4.5 ounce) can
1 (10.75 ounce) can
condensed cream of chicken soup
1 (10.75 ounce) can
condensed cream of mushroom soup
crushed saltine crackers
Didn't follow the exact recipe because I had leftovers to use up... but it was wonderful. Changes I made: Used leftover roast chicken, leftover boiled potatoes, can of carrots, fresh portabello mushrooms (chopped), 1 tablespoon of Italian Seasoning, 1 teaspoon of dried oregano, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, leftover chicken gravy (instead of cream of chicken soup). Also on top I used crushed Ritz crackers dabbed with butter. Kids and hubby loved it! One suggestion is to cook for 45 minutes at 350 or for 30-40 @ 375 degrees.
Thanks for sharing the recipe!
Not a very good recipe. Too much of a kid's meal. A lot like a pot pie, but with silly saltine crackers. Will work better by simply excluding the crackers. Bread crumbs may work well, but this recipe begs for a pie crust.
I loved this recipe! The change I made was not to use saltines but a refrigerated pie crust. This pot pie works with chicken equally as well as with turkey. My entire family loved it (which doesn't happen often) and it will become a regular at our house.
Excellent meal! I threw just about all the leftovers from Christmas dinner, including gravy with the soups and it turned out delicious!
Very easy to make....my husband called it a "turkey pot pie"
I was looking for a way to use up the leftover Xmas turkey. This definitely helped. I made adjustments also. I used two cans of cream of mushroom, green beans instead of peas, and sprinkled shredded mozzarella over the cream mixture just before I added crushed Ritz crackers. Loved it. Will make it again and again.
This worked well for leftover turkey breast I had in the freezer. I used a fat free cream of chicken soup and chopped yellow onion in place of the pearl onions. I left out the can of mushrooms because of personal preference. My husband said a biscuit on top would be better than the cracker crumbs and I think he may be right.
This recipe is great! It's my boyfriend's new favourite as well!
