|Prep time||Cook time||Ready in||Yields|
1 hour 30 min
- 2 sheets pastry puff
- 1 egg, (beaten)
- 2 chicken breasts, (cubed)
- 2 tablespoons cooking oil
- 1/3 cup butter
- 2/3 cup flour, (all-purpose)
- 1 quart heavy cream, (can use milk)
- 1/4 cup chicken broth
- 1 tablespoon garlic, (minced)
- 1/2 onion, (minced)
- 1 cup frozen peas
- 1 cup carrots, (cooked)
- Pinch nutmeg, (optional)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Cut each sheet of frozen puff pastry into 1-inch strips, 8 inches long. On a large cookie sheet, weave strips into a lattice large enough to cover each pot pie. Brush beaten egg onto each lattice square. Bake for 5 minutes, or until dough has turned light golden brown. Set aside until ready to assemble pies. Leave oven on at 350 degrees.
- Season chicken with seasoned salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and saute until cooked through. Remove from heat and cut into chunks.
- In a large saucepan, melt butter and then slowly add flour, stirring until it thickens. Slowly add cream and keep stirring.
- Add chicken base, garlic, and onion. Stir with wooden spoon until mixed well.
- Add peas, carrots and cooked chicken. Add nutmeg, if using.
- Fill 4 oven-proof bowls with chicken mixture. Top each bowl with a pre-cooked lattice square. Bake for 5 minutes or until bubbly.
