The pretty lattice on this turkey pot pie is easily made from purchased pizza dough. To give the lean ground turkey (you can also use ground beef) filling a bit more flavor, we added some chili powder and tomatoes to make things saucy and delicious. Sprinkle the crust with some Parmesan before baking to add a nice nutty bite.

Homemade piecrust is great, but a refrigerated crust is an easy way to get this pot pie recipe on the table in less than an hour. Alfredo pasta sauce provides a creamy base for frozen veggies (3 cups of your choice) and cooked chicken. Instead of cutting slits for steam to escape, our Test Kitchen likes to use a small cookie cutter to cut a shape for a fun finishing touch.

For a healthier pot pie recipe minus the crust, opt for mounds of sweet potato. If you have leftover mashed sweet potatoes and turkey from Thanksgiving, this is an excellent way to make sure they don't go to waste. Use ramekins to make mini pot pies instead of one large one.
