A thick and hearty stew is so satisfying on a blustery, cold day. And if you’re thinking of ways to use up leftover turkey, then this recipe is perfect. From the warm and flaky biscuits on top to the creamy soup, you may find yourself licking the bowl clean. Let’s make some homemade turkey biscuit stew.
Ingredients You’ll Need
To make this delicious meal in a bowl, you’ll need:
- 1 cup of cooked peas and a cup of cooked whole baby carrots
- ¾ cup of milk
- A tube of refrigerated buttermilk biscuits and a can of undiluted, condensed chicken broth
- 1/8 teaspoon of pepper
- ½ teaspoon of salt
- 2 cups of cooked turkey, cubed
- ¼ cup of cubed butter
- 1/3 cup of chopped onion and 1/3 cup of all-purpose flour
Putting Your Stew Together Is Easy-Peasy
Great comfort food tastes even better when you don’t have to jump through hoops to make it. And this turkey biscuit stew is about as simple a recipe as you can get. First, preheat your oven to 375°F. While it heats, use a 10-inch cast iron skillet or another oven-proof skillet to sauté the onions in the butter. Once the onion has softened and is translucent, add the salt, pepper, and flour. Blend it all together, and then slowly add your milk and broth to the mixture.
Stir the ingredients in your skillet for a few moments until it bubbles and thickens up. Next, add your carrots, peas, and cubed turkey and cook until the stew has heated through.
It’s Time for Biscuits
For the last step, you can open the tube of biscuits and arrange each biscuit on top of the stew. Next, take the biscuit-topped skillet and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the biscuits have turned golden brown.
Keep in mind that if you use larger biscuits, they may not bake through evenly. In fact, you may end up with doughy biscuits. As a result, smaller biscuits may be the way to go for more fuss-free results.
Another way to get flaky biscuits is to bake them separately and add them to the top of the stew. However, baking them on the stew in the skillet is a fantastic way to use fewer dishes. And by using fewer dishes, you’ll have less to clean, which is another reason why this recipe is great.

Make It Your Own
This stew is simple and tasty as-is. But you can experiment with your favorite herbs, like rosemary or thyme. In addition, you could also add other veggies like celery. If you add celery, sauté it with the onion for best results. And, of course, if you don’t have turkey, cubed chicken works great as well.
