This gorgeous galette takes traditional chicken potpie and gives it a fun open-faced spin. The rich filling and flaky cheddar-flecked crust make it taste so homey. It's lovely for fall and winter dinners, but you can enjoy it anytime. —Elisabeth Larsen, Pleasant Grove, Utah

  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 1/4 cup ice water
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 large carrots, sliced
  • 1 celery rib, diced
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 8 ounces sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 3 cups julienned Swiss chard
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups shredded cooked chicken
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh oregano
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley


  1. Combine flour, cheese, thyme and salt; cut in butter until crumbly. Gradually add ice water, tossing with a fork until dough holds together when pressed. Shape into a disk; refrigerate 1 hour.
  2. For filling, melt butter in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add carrots, celery and onion; cook and stir until slightly softened, 5-7 minutes. Add mushrooms; cook 3 minutes longer. Add Swiss chard and garlic; cook until chard is wilted, 2-3 minutes.
  3. Whisk together broth, flour, salt and pepper; slowly pour over vegetables, stirring constantly. Cook until thickened, 2-3 minutes. Stir in chicken and oregano.
  4. Preheat oven to 400°. On a floured sheet of parchment, roll dough into a 12-in. circle. Transfer to a baking sheet. Spoon filling over crust to within 2 in. of edge. Fold crust edge over filling, pleating as you go, leaving center uncovered. Bake on a lower oven rack until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly, 30-35 minutes. Cool 15 minutes before slicing. Sprinkle with parsley.

Test Kitchen tips
  • Fill the potpie with any meat/cheese/veggie combo you like. It would be just as amazing, for example, with sausage, golden beets and kale.
  • The filling may start to bubble up a bit toward the end of the bake time, so be sure to use parchment paper or a silicone mat.
