- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- ¾ cup onion, diced
- 1 ¼ cups carrots, diced
- ¾ cup celery, sliced
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 3 cups chicken broth
- 2 ½ cups chopped turkey white or dark meat are ne
- 1 ¼ cups frozen peas
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 large egg
- ⅓ cup whole milk
Preheat oven to 400°F.
In a large pot over medium heat, heat the oil until shimmering. Saute the onion, carrots, and celery until softened.
Stir in the flour until no lumps remain. Add in about ¼ cup of broth and stir until thick sauce forms. Add the remaining broth and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and allow to simmer until thickened, about 10 minutes.
Remove from the heat and stir in the turkey and peas. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Pour into an 8x11-inch baking pan and set aside.
Make the topping by whisking together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
In a separate small bowl, beat together the egg and milk. Pour into the flour and stir to combine. It should be a sticky dough.
Drop dough of about 2 to 3 tablespoons each on top of the turkey mixture. Bake for 17-19 minutes, until the topping is golden brown.
