  • 6 Tablespoons bleached all-purpose flour

How to make it:
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Grease a 9x9x2-inch baking pan.
  2. Heat the butter in a large saute pan over medium-high heat.
  3. Add the onions and celery, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes.
  4. Stir in the flour and cook, stirring, for 3 to 4 minutes to make a blond roux.
  5. Stir in the chicken stock and bring the liquid to a boil.
  6. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer until the sauce begins to thicken, 4 to 6 minutes.
  7. Stir in the half-and-half and continue to cook for another 4 minutes.
  8. Season with salt and herbs.
  9. Stir in the potatoes, carrots, peas, turkey, and parsley, season with salt and herbs and mix well.
  10. Line the baking pan with one of the rolled-out pie crusts.
  11. Pour the filling into the prepared pan. Place the second crust on top of the filling. Carefully tuck the overlapping crusts into the pan, forming a thick edge. Crimp the edges, cut vents in the top crust, and place on a baking sheet. Bake until the crust is golden brown and crusty, 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes before slicing to serve.
