This updated lower-fat version of an old favourite uses biscuit mix for the top crust and cream soup for the sauce. Teaming the microwave to cook the vegetables and the conventional oven for a golden crust streamlines this one-dish dinner.

  • 2 Ontario Potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 2 Ontario Carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 1 large Ontario Onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) chicken broth
  • 2 cups (500 mL) cubed cooked Ontario Turkey or Ontario Chicken
  • 1 cup (250 mL) quartered Ontario Mushrooms
  • 1 cup (250 mL) frozen green peas, thawed
  • 1 can (10 oz/284 mL) cream of chicken soup (or celery, mushroom or potato)
  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) dried thyme leaves
  • Pinch black pepper
  • 1-1/2 cups (375 mL) tea biscuit mix
  • 2 tbsp (25 mL) chopped fresh Ontario Parsley (or 1 tbsp/15 mL dried)
  • 1/3 cup (75 mL) Ontario Milk


In 8 cup (2 L) round microwavable heatproof casserole, combine potatoes, carrots, onion and chicken broth. Cover and microwave at High for 10 to 12 minutes or until vegetables are almost tender, stirring twice during cooking. Stir in turkey, mushrooms, peas, soup, thyme and pepper until evenly combined, smoothing top. Set aside.

In small bowl, combine biscuit mix and parsley; stir in just enough milk to make a soft, sticky dough. Turn out onto floured surface and knead 6 to 8 times. Roll or pat into circle to fit casserole. Place dough on filling (don't worry if it falls apart, just pat together). Cut a few steam slits in topping.

Bake in 400°F (200°C) oven until top is golden brown and filling is bubbly, 20 to 25 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
