Ingredients and Variations

a bowl of frozen peas, carrots, celery, turkey, butter, and other ingredients on a white board.
  • Veggies – lots of carrots, celery, potatoes, onions, garlic, and peas. I used frozen peas and fresh veggies, but you can absolutely use frozen chopped and prepped veggies from the grocery store.
  • Liquids – chicken stock (or try turkey bone broth) and whole milk.
  • Protein – I used leftover turkey but leftover chicken would work great for this recipe as well. Shred a whole chicken (related: Dry Brined Chicken) or make some No Breading Air Fryer Chicken Tenders.
  • Spices & herbs – sea salt, black pepper, celery seed (not celery salt), and dried parsley.
  • Misc – puff pastry, butter, flour, and an egg.

Pro Tips/Recipe Notes

  • Check the directions on the box of your puff pastry to confirm the thawing time. Some brands only recommend 20 minutes and others recommend up to 1 hour.
  • Using prechopped and frozen ingredients are total time-savers. Frozen chopped garlicfrozen onions, and garlic paste will all cut down on your prep time.
  • Do not skip the step of warming the milk before adding it to the floured onions. This will prevent the sauce from breaking/curdling.
  • If you need to use raw chicken or turkey, the baking time remains the same.

  • 3/4 cup frozen peas

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400F.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together egg and 1 tbsp of whole milk. Set aside.

  • Place carrots, celery, and potato in a medium saucepan and cover with water (~2.5 cups). Bring to a boil for 1 minute and then simmer until vegetables are soft (~10-15 minutes).
    2 cups carrots, 1 cup celery, 1 1/4 cup peeled and cubed potatoes
  • Drain vegetables and set them aside.
  • While the vegetables are cooking, heat a large frying pan over medium heat.
  • Melt butter and cook onion until softened (~5 minutes). Add garlic, salt, pepper, celery seed, and parsley. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring often.

    2 cups turkey, 3/4 cup frozen peas
  • Pour or spoon the warm sauce over the top of the vegetables and turkey.
  • Cover with puff pastry, allowing for 1-inch overhang on all the sides. Cut 2-4 slits in the top of the pastry.
    1 sheet puff pastry
  • Bake on the middle rack at 400F for 15 minutes.
  • Brush the egg/milk mixture over the top of the puff pastry and bake for an additional 5-15 minutes or until the puff pastry is golden brown. Pro tip: if the pastry is browning too quickly, loosely tent with foil.
  • Remove from the oven and let stand for 10-15 minutes before cutting/serving.

Notes

  1. Check the directions on the box of your puff pastry to confirm the thawing time. Some brands only recommend 20 minutes and others recommend up to 1 hour.
  2. Do not skip the step of warming the milk before adding it to the floured onions. This will prevent the sauce from breaking/curdling.
  3. Depending on the size of the pastry, you may need to use a rolling pin to make the sheet large enough to cover your baking dish. Also, work quickly to cut the slits in as the puff pastry gets hard to work with when it makes contact with the warm liquid.
