Pot Pie Soups are one of our favorite cozy soups on a chilly day. This easy Turkey Pot Pie Soup is packed with flavor thanks to this Oven Ready Cajun Style Turkey Breast. This soup is great for using holiday leftovers, but perfect when you want a delicious turkey pot pie soup during the rest of the year. My favorite part is the pie shell topping. It gives the perfect crunchy texture!
Start with the Oven Ready Turkey Breast. I used the Cajun Style for a little extra flavor, but the traditional or boneless would work perfectly for this recipe too! The Jennie-O Oven Ready Turkey Breast takes between 2 and 2.5 hours to cook, so plan for about 3 hours to give it time to rest before shredding. I cooked my turkey breast in the morning when I had some free time, shredded it and used it for the soup at dinner time.
The frozen hash browns are a great shortcut! The soup comes together in a snap and the potatoes breakdown and help thicken the soup. Don’t forget the pie crust. Follow the package instructions for baking. I brushed mine with a light egg wash to give them a golden brown color.
