Individual Chicken Pot Pies


Tis the season of creamy comfort food. I have never used puff pastry before, but I decided it was time. I was surprised to discover how easy it is to use. I bought some Pepperidge Farm frozen puff pastry and went to work to create some individual chicken pot pies. I cut a full piece of puff pastry into 6 rectangles and baked them in the oven. Meanwhile, I prepared the filling using a recipe from Campbell's (see below), and using the veggies I had already and pastry sheets instead of shells. Then I just served the filling between two pieces of puff pastry. It took no time at all to make this delicious creamy comfort food!
Individual Chicken Pot Pies
Ingredients:
1 pkg. (10 ounces) Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Shells
1 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 can (10 3/4 ounces) Campbell's® Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup (Regular, 98% Fat Free or Healthy Request®)
1/2 cup milk 1 pkg. (10 ounces) frozen peas and carrots
2 cups cubed cooked chicken
Directions:
Bake, cool and remove the "tops" of the pastry shells according to the package directions.
Heat the oil in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook until it's tender.
Stir the soup, milk and peas and carrots in the skillet and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 5 minutes or until the vegetables are tender. Add the chicken and cook until the mixture is hot and bubbling. Serve in the pastry shells.

Pot pie? Yes please. Individual pot pie where I can steal everyone else's puff pastry triangles and keep them for myself? Most definitely! Looks great!

What a great idea to cook the puff pastry separate of the pot pie filling. That sounds GREAT!

Yup pot pie is the ultimate comfort food when the weather gets colder. It makes snow shoveling all the worthwhile :)

Nice new layout! I leave for a second and holy cow, I'm met with awesome colors and a cool butterfly.

That looks heavenly! Pot pie is one of my all time favorite "comfort foods"! Although - I dont cook with puff pastry because it scares me!

Wandering Coyote said...

OK, back on line after being off for several days...

I'm seeing a lot of meat pies/pot pies on foodblogs lately...I might have to give it a go.
