- 1 Tablespoon oil
- 1 onion; chopped
- 5 Tablespoons butter
- 5 Tablespoons flour
- 3 1/2 Cups chicken stock
- salt, to taste
- freshly-ground black pepper to taste
- 1 teaspoon fresh thyme, marjoram or tarragon (or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme, marjoram)
- 1 1/4 Cups diced carrots; see * Note
- 5 Cups cubed cooked turkey (or chicken)
- 1 1/4 Cups frozen peas; see * Note
- 1 3/4 Cups flour
- 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/3 Cup shortening
- 1 Cup milk; plus
- 1 teaspoon milk; divided
- 3 Tablespoons freshly-snipped chives
- 2 Tablespoons sea salt (optional)
- 1/4 Cup shredded cheese (Cheddar, Jack, Swiss - optional)
- For the Filling: Heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium heat and cook the onion until soft and translucent, 5 minutes. Add the butter and melt. Add the flour and cook, stirring constantly, 3 minutes. Add the stock, stirring constantly. If there are any lumps, you can use a whisk to help blend everything together.
- Raise the heat to high and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer. Season to taste with salt and pepper, then add the thyme and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is thickened, about 5 minutes. Add the carrots and cook another 5 minutes. Add the turkey and peas.
- Portion the mixture into individual heatproof bowls and place each on a baking tray.
- Heat through, then remove from the heat and keep warm.
- For the Biscuit Topping: Heat the oven to 425 degrees. Whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt in a medium mixing bowl. Cut in the shortening until the pieces are no larger than small peas. Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in 1 cup of the milk and the chives. Stir with a fork until the ingredients are incorporated.
- Pour the filling into a large, flat baking dish. Tear off the Biscuit Topping in roughly handful-sized pieces, and spread them over the meat and vegetables. Brush the remaining tablespoon of milk over the biscuit dough. Optionally, you may sprinkle the top with a bit of sea salt and shredded cheese.
- Bake the pot pie until the biscuit topping is browned on top and fully cooked, 20 to 30 minutes.
