Leftover turkey is delicious in turkey pot pie, so I thought why not use it to make turkey pot pie soup?

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and didn’t do too much damage to your waistline.

I spent Thanksgiving at my Mom’s house, she wouldn’t have it any other way. She makes Thanksgiving look effortless, but we all brought some dishes along to contribute. I made a cauliflower gratin which turned out great, I’ll be posting that soon.

And what to do with your leftover turkey? A turkey pot pie soup is comforting and a great way to use your leftover turkey. I made my own turkey stock from the turkey bones and some vegetables, but you can use canned, or even chicken broth. I took some extra pie crust I had and cut out shapes with a cookie cutter, then baked them to make little pie crust croutons, completely optional but I loved it.

  1. This is a great comfort food without all the cream. You won’t miss it! I threw everything but the slurry in the crock pot and enjoyed the smell all day. I cooked on high for around 6-7hours because I used frozen chicken and shredded it at the end. I added the slurry around the last hour of cooking. My husband just walked in for seconds….

  2. My favorite meal to make with leftover Turkey. It’s so flavorful and customizable. This year I used a sweet potato instead of white potatoes, no mushrooms and added extra celery to use it up. 

  3. I shared this once the first time I made it and now I literally TRIPLE the recipe every time because I gift it to more and more people. Everyone loves it and I have to share the recipe. This soup is amazing, feels sinfully delicious and is so easy to make! It is definitely in my “favorites” section of my printed recipes cookbook. I don’t print many recipes, but when I do it’s a keeper for sure! I don’t sub anything other than to use Costco’s Kirkland Signature Turkey Breast (I weigh out the correct ounces needed then dice it) and it tastes like I’m using turkey from Thanksgiving every time.

    1. I made this again tonight and I forgot the one thing I do differently…. I add the potatoes earlier than you say to in the recipe. It seems no matter how small I dice them (usually a tad larger than cubed hash brown size) they take a while to cook and makes the other veggies a tad softer than I’d prefer. Still LOVE this recipe though!!

  4. This is absolutely delish!! I made it with almond milk. I would make sure it was the unsweetened almond milk next time but will definitely make this again.

    Surprisingly tasty! My first experience with skim milk and it was a pleasant surprise. This soup is creamy and full of veggies. I added some fresh chopped spinach to this recipe. And its filling. 1 1/3 cups for 3 points! I will make this again. Even my husband enjoyed it and didn’t even realize this was a “skinny” recipe.

  6. HI I use many of your recipes enjoy a lot.  Have question in your turkey pot pie soup you say a tsp off bullion. Too much salt for me what can I use to add more flavor.          Thanks ahead time.  Barbara.

  9. This recipe was delicious. I did make some modifications because I was on a budget. I used chicken thighs instead of breast and used 1/2 cup of heavy cream and 3 1/2 cups low fat milk to make it slightly creamier. Like one of the of the other reviewers mentioned, it’s better to add the potatoes with the other veggies because it’s not going to be cooked through in 5 mins unless you microwave it first. I would definitely make this again in the future.

  11. Made this last night and substituted more peas and carrots for the mushrooms. Didn't see where to add the bouillon and so I just left it out. Hubs said it was super yummy and I agree!

    I thought about that, but could it have really reduced by almost 4 whole cups just from simmering? I'll turn the heat down next time and try it and see.

    This was pretty good. I made the recipe exactly as written and it only made 6.5 cups. Any idea why this would happen?

  14. Gina – this looks so delish! I have all the ingredients and can't wait to try it. Do you think that using soy milk would ruin the taste of the soup? I'm dairy free so I would love your opinion!

  16. Gina – Did you post the cauliflower gratin recipe? I have a cauliflower in my fridge that needs to be used an would love to try it.

  17. I made this with the leftover turkey from Thanksgiving. This is now a new family favorite. My husband and my girls raved about it big time.

  18. I am eating a bowl of this delicious soup right now! I made this after Thanksgiving with leftover turkey and froze the leftovers! My husband said this might be his new favorite soup (I make soup at least once/week in the fall & winter)! The soup also reheated beautifully!! Thanks for such a great recipe!

  19. Just wanted to say that I put this into my WW Recipe Builder (with 1% milk instead of fat free) and it came up with 5 points/serving. I see that you say it is 7. I'm not sure why there's a difference. Anyway, just letting you know! 🙂

  20. I made this yesterday and blended it before I added the turkey. Fooled my picky eaters who refuse most veggies! Then I added a bit of leftover corn with the turkey and a package of gnocchi. They all loved it! Thank you so much!

  21. I used this recipe but substituted cauliflower instead of potatoes. It reduced the points even further and tasted delicious! Even my picky eater son loved it. This is a keeper for leftover turkey or chicken!

  22. We had this for dinner tonight. Outstanding! My husband and kids loved it, which is saying quite a bit! It will get added to my collection. Thanks for the great use of our leftover turkey.

  23. Made this tonight and the kids really enjoyed it. I didn't see in the directions when to add the additional bullion…

  24. Just made this and we loved it. My husband ate it with pita bread that I had made on thanksgiving because he needed something bread-y to go with it.

  25. Made it tonight–Amazing!! :0) Used a little fat free half and half to make it a bit richer tasting–but delish!!

    1. Isn't that completely annoying? A bunch of 'reviews' by people who haven't even made it. I've never seen that before in my whole life!

  26. I am making a pot now! I made a thanksgiving dinner casserole this morning with layers of stuffing, squash, green beans, turkey, gravy and mashed sweet potatoes too. I think all my leftovers have no been turned into something new for the weekend now!

  27. This looks so nice. Thinking to add some cheese and serve with French bread, it would be a simple but satisfy meal. 🙂

    I was trying to figure out what to do with the leftover turkey I had in my fridge. My hubby and I both had a second Thanksgiving dinner yesterday with everything and we still have TONS left. I am totally making this tonight!! I've also got A TON of your skinny mashed potatoes left too so I'm gonna make the mashed potato patties to go with it! YUM!

    I don't have any of the bouillon. What could I substitute or could I just leave it out?

  29. I am sorry I do not have any leftover, I only made a turkey breast… may have to buy turkey so I can make this. I made your pumpkin pie… delish

    I made this for dinner tonight, and it was amazing! Very satisfying and filling! I will definitely be making this again. I also had enough to freeze servings and refrigerate servings, which makes life easier on busy late work nights. Thank you for an amazing blog!

  31. This looks so yummy! I can't wait to make it.

    Yesterday was the first time that I prepared Thanksgiving dinner all by myself just for my family, and I used all your recipes. Oh my gosh, everything was wonderful. The brined turkey was amazing. My husband said it was easily the best turkey he has ever had. I also made your garlic rosemary biscuits, fennel quinoa and skinny pumpkin pie. Thanks so much for all your great recipes. Since finding your website, my cooking has been so healthy and so delicious!

    Happy Holidays!
