Prior preparation needed
Cook chicken (or turkey) and save stock
I made this for our church’s monthly Community Meal. I used a White Sauce Mix to thicken the stock and seasoned it with curry powder, thyme, sage and cumin.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t cut into it to show you the interior. So you will just have to imagine all the yummy goodness of turkey and vegetables below the crust. Perhaps another time I will make one just for me. I did not use the biscuit topping. Instead I retrieved some pastry I had in my freezer.
The contributor comments: “This is a hearty, economical and nutritious meal. It may be made early in the day and refrigerated until ready to bake.”
