Turkey Pot Pie Soup is the best way to use leftover turkey! Easy to make in the instant pot, slow cooker or on the stove-it's healthy & tasty!
In a large soup pot melt butter.
Once butter is melted add the chopped onion, celery and carrots to the pot. Cook the veggies until they are tender. This should take about 5 minutes.
Add the garlic, bay leaves and potatoes to the pot.
Add flour to pot and stir in to make sure it coats all of the ingredients. The flour will start to dissolve.
Add the chicken broth, milk, and thyme to the soup pot.
Stir and reduce the heat to low.
Let the soup simmer for 20 – 25 minutes.
Stir in the turkey, peas, and corn – as well as any of the optional ingredients listed above.
Season with salt and pepper, to taste and let the soup simmer for another 10 minutes.
If the soup is too thick, add another 1/2 cup of milk to the soup.
Remove Bay Leaves and serve HOT topped with oyster crackers. ENJOY!
