Turkey Potpie with Biscuit Crust

I haven't tried this one yet... but looks like it could be good for turkey day left overs which will be here before we know it...

1 to 1 1/2 cups leftover turkey meat
1/2 cooked sweet potato, cut into 1-inch pieces (about 1 cup)
1 medium zucchini, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 large carrot, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch pieces
3 scallions, trimmed and thinly sliced
1 tablespoon fresh thyme, or 1 teaspoon dried leaves
1 teaspoon kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1 1/4 cups turkey gravy
1 17.3-ounce package refrigerated corn biscuits

Heat oven to 350ยบ F. In a 2-quart baking dish, combine the turkey, sweet potato, zucchini, carrot, scallions, thyme, salt, and a few grinds of pepper and toss well. Pour the gravy on top. Bake in the oven, uncovered, for 25 minutes. Gently roll out 4 biscuits individually and overlap them to make a crust that will cover the baking dish. Bake until the top is golden brown, about 15 more minutes.

Oooh, this sounds good! When I make chicken stock for soups, I tend to use 2 whole chickens and always have so much meat left over. This is a perfect solution1 Can't wait to try it!
