This is an amazingly simple and homey dinner, one that everyone will love, even the most sophisticated of the bunch.
3/4 lb. cooked turkey breast, cut into bite-sized pieces
1 large onion, chopped
4 medium potatoes, baked and then cut into chunks
1 1/2 teaspoons marjoram
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 1/2 Tablespoons cornstarch, or flour
2 Tablespoons cooking oil
2 ribs celery, thinly sliced
4 medium carrots, sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
8 cups chicken broth
1 Bay leaf
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup water
To prepare filling: Heat 1 Tablespoon of the oil in a large Dutch oven over medium high heat. Add celery, carrots and onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly brown, about 3-5 minutes. Add garlic, and turkey. Stir in potatoes, broth, marjoram, bay leaf, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil,
then reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Remove Bay leaf and place filling in a buttered baking dish.
To prepare biscuits: While filling simmers, in large bowl, combine:
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
Blend with fork. Add:
1/4 cup oil
1 cup milk
Mix til just incorporated. Set aside.
In a small bowl, dissolve the cornstarch or flour in the water to make a smooth paste. Stir this mixture into simmering filling and cook 2-3 minutes until thickened.
Drop biscuit mix by tablespoons over top of filling.
Place in a 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes, to heat through. Check to make sure biscuits are getting browned but also that they are cooked through. Lift a biscuit, careful now!, with a fork to make sure it is dry underneath and not gooey.
If you need to cook longer to get biscuits done, you may cover the dish with foil so it doesn't get too browned.
Hope you try this one out~ It was enjoyed by all at our table last night!
