Skillet Turkey and Biscuits

You can punch up the flavor of this dish by adding 1⁄2 teaspoon dried sage and 1 to 2 teaspoons dried parsley when you add the pepper. The style of biscuits you use is up to you; just keep in mind that the bigger the biscuits, the longer they’ll take to bake.

Serves: 4


  • 1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 medium yellow onion, peeled and chopped
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • 3 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 1⁄2 cups whole milk
  • 1 package (12 oz.) frozen peas and carrots
  • 2 cups shredded cooked turkey
  • 1⁄4 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1 can (16.3 oz.) 8-count refrigerator biscuits


  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • Bring the oil and butter to temperature in a 12-inch oven-proof skillet. Add the onion and celery and sauté for 5 minutes, or until the onion is transparent. Sprinkle flour over the cooked vegetables and stir-fry for 2 minutes to cook the flour.
  • Slowly add the chicken broth to the pan, whisking to prevent lumps from forming. Stir the milk into the chicken broth. Increase the temperature to medium-high and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes, or until mixture begins to thicken. Add the peas and carrots, turkey, and pepper. Mix well.
  • Arrange the biscuits over the top of the turkey mixture. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the biscuits are golden brown.
