Air Fryer Hand-Held Turkey Pot Pie

Warm to the touch with a slightly crispy golden crust handheld turkey pot pie bursts with hunger satisfaction and is dripping with rewarding delight that only at the last bite. The only problem you may have (depending on the size of your fryer) is making enough of them to keep up with how fast they will get gobbled down. A warm sauce pan gently sauteing onion and garlic may be my favorite way to kick off cooking a nice meal like this. The nose flavors are so inviting and create a subtle taste profile that is soundly embedded into this handy recipe. Thickened turkey broth swimming with rich tasting celery, carrots, peas, and cooked turkey are guaranteed to be a belly filling taste bud pleaser that will have the target audience coming back for more. Best served fresh and warm; these little beauties keep well and travel nicely for an easy ‘reheat on the go’ or for a ‘pop-n-go’ bite just prior to stepping out to meet whatever your day has planned. Make these on the weekend and let the kids heat them up to give you some flexibility for a busy up-coming week. But if you have enough time to gather the family around the table, handheld chicken pot pies keep a warm temperature when covered, long enough for you to make a couple of batches. Best part is how great they will smell while you heat up the next batch.

Roll out the pie dough crust and cut out 6″ wide circles. Re-roll the scraps (you should have at least 6 circles from the 2 pie crust).
