HOW is Thanksgiving on Thursday? I mean, I know how but this year has FLOWN. I say this every single year and I probably should stop saying it but each year I feel like I’m more and more blown away at how fast the years go by.

So, you probably already have your Thanksgiving Day menus planned (or are you still scrambling — if you are, here’s a bunch of ideas) and I’ve thought ahead for you and thought of what you should make for all those LEFTOVERS! Yep, you likely will have a bunch of turkey leftover and while I have a bunch of recipes on the blog for Thanksgiving Day leftovers; I’m sure you could use another recipe to change it up!

I love a classic chicken pot pie but there’s something about giving it a curry spin that makes me all for it.

This curry turkey pot pie is great for Thanksgiving leftovers because if you also have puff pastry leftovers from making my caramelized onion, mushroom, apple, and gruyere bites, you can use the puff pastry as the topping for this pot pie!

I know cooking another meal isn’t ideal right after you made a massive meal for Thanksgiving but turkey lasts a bit in the refrigerator so you can take a break for a day or two and then shred up the turkey or rough chop it and make this curry turkey pot pie.

I added curry to this because I figured after the classics of Thanksgiving, we need a different kind of spice and taste in our life.

    Julie, Thanks for the inspiration – I made a few changes to suit what I had on hand (no peas so used spinach) added some parsnips and sweet potato so had to increase the liquids. I have learned recently that a box of puff pastry in the freezer can really make some quick magic since I fell for another food bloggers simple apple tart. The curry was such a nice change from the “Thanksgiving” flavors and the puff pastry gave us a tasty quick crust (not a fan of store bought pie crust). I look forward to trying your white chili next.
