Ingredients

  • 2 frozen puff pastry sheets, thawed in refrigerator
  • 1/2 cup butter, divided
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 cup carrot, 1/2-inch dice
  • 1 cup celery, 1/2-inch dice
  • 1 cup fresh green peas, shelled
  • 1 cup zucchini, 1/2-inch dice
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 4 cups cooked boneless skinless chicken breast, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 3 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth or stock
  • 2 Tablespoons dried thyme leaves
  • 1 Tablespoon crushed rosemary
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup heavy cream

Preparation

  1. If using individual pot pies, use a ramekin as a template to trace a circle from puff pastry sheet for each pie to be made, adding 1-inch for overhang on all sides. Place on tray. Cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. Preheat oven to 400┬░F. Melt half of the butter in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add onions, carrots and celery; cook and stir 5 minutes. Add peas and zucchini; cook and stir 3 minutes or until tender. Add wine to skillet; bring to boil. Stir in chicken. Season with sea salt and pepper. Set aside.
  3. Bring stock, thyme and rosemary to boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer until ready to use.
  4. Melt remaining butter in separate saucepan on medium heat. Sprinkle with flour. Stir with whisk until mixture is well blended. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook and stir 2 minutes or until mixture turns golden. Immediately add about half of the stock, whisking until mixture is smooth. Whisk in remaining stock and heavy cream until smooth. Stirring constantly, bring to boil on medium-high heat and boil 1 minute or until sauce is thick.
  5. Pour sauce over mixture in skillet. Toss gently until well coated. Fill ramekin or casserole dish about 3/4 full with chicken mixture and place pastry on top. Press excess pastry firmly all around side of ramekin. Place on baking sheet.
  6. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until pastry is puffed and golden brown. Serve immediately.
