Puff Pastry Chicken Potpie
Total TimePrep: 45 min. Bake: 45 min. + standing
- 1 package (17.3 ounces) frozen puff pastry, thawed
- 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
- 1 teaspoon salt, divided
- 1 teaspoon pepper, divided
- 4 tablespoons butter, divided
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme or 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1 teaspoon minced fresh sage or 1/4 teaspoon rubbed sage
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon half-and-half cream, divided
- 2 cups frozen mixed vegetables (about 10 ounces)
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 large egg yolk
- Preheat oven to 400°. On a lightly floured surface, roll each pastry sheet into a 12x10-in. rectangle. Cut one sheet crosswise into six 2-in. strips; cut remaining sheet lengthwise into five 2-in. strips. On a baking sheet, closely weave strips to make a 12x10-in. lattice. Freeze while making filling.
- Toss chicken with 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon butter over medium-high heat; saute chicken until browned, 5-7 minutes. Remove from pan.
- In same skillet, heat remaining butter over medium-high heat; saute onion until tender, 5-7 minutes. Stir in garlic and herbs; cook 1 minute. Stir in flour until blended; cook and stir 1 minute. Gradually stir in broth and 1 cup cream. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; cook and stir until thickened, about 2 minutes.
- Stir in vegetables, lemon juice, chicken and the remaining salt and pepper; return to a boil. Transfer to a greased 2-qt. oblong baking dish. Top with lattice, trimming to fit.
- Whisk together egg yolk and remaining cream; brush over pastry. Bake, uncovered, until bubbly and golden brown, 45-55 minutes. Let stand 15 minutes before serving.

This was excellent, made 8 - 5" pies Bake for only 30 minutes and used full pastry for top crusts and cut a vent in each one. Beautiful !

I've tried this recipe a few time could never get the pastry to cook on the underside so this time I made dumplings instead it was pretty amazing

This is a FANTASTIC pot pie recipe! It is rich and flavourful with the perfect addition of puff pastry. The only change I made was to deglaze the pan with a 1/2c of white wine after cooking the chicken. Otherwise, it is perfect as is! We served it over garlic mashed potatoes on a cold Canadian winter evening.

YUM!! Absolutely the best-tasting chicken pot pie I ever made! The crust is even awesome, unlike other recipes I have tried! And so comforting this time of year when it is chilly outside! Thank you for posting this, and how lucky your wife is to have you cook this for her! I always like the eating part better than the cooking part, LOL!
