Allen’s Chicken Pot Pie

Written by Patti on March 1st, 2011

Good Morning Darlings!

Remember on my birthday, my sweet friend Allen gifted me with a homemade chicken pot pie? Goodness gracious, it was delicious. And, as expected, gobbled up like hungry badgers by E and me.

Allen’s recipe didn’t come attached, so I will link to one in a minute. For now, lets just gaze at that flaky crust and yummy, creamy ingredients. This was our Oscar dinner. Perfect.

Hot from the oven. Really hot. Be careful!

Paired with a glass of chardonnay, it was the perfect Sunday night supper.

Luscious pot pie goodness.

Here’s a nice, easy recipe from Enjoy!


Serves: 4,

1 package puff pastry, thawed and rolled for top
1/4 cup butter
1 medium onion, chopped
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
salt and pepper, to taste
1 cup chicken broth
3/4 cup light cream or 3/4 cup milk
2 3/4 cups cooked chicken (cut up) or 2 3/4 cups cooked turkey (cut up)
1 1/2 cups mixed vegetables

Prep Time: 20 mins
Total Time: 50 mins
1 Thaw pastry according to package directions.
2 Heat butter in large saucepan. Cook onion in butter until tender-crisp.
3 Add flour and seasonings, mixing until smooth.
4 Gradually stir in broth and milk. Cook, stirring constantly, over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil and is smoothly thickened.
5 Stir in chicken and vegetables.
6 Cool slightly. Spoon into baking dish.
7 Place rolled out puff pastry on top and make slits for steam to escape.
8 You can brush with egg white. (opt.).
9 Bake on lower rack in oven @ 375*F. until filling is bubbling and crust is puffed and golden brown. 30-35 minutes.

Thanks again, Allen! It was the tastiest dinner!

Oh, and tune in tomorrow, I have the most fun news for you!
