Individual Chicken Pot Pies


Pot pie is one of those comfort foods that I love.  I remember eating those little frozen ones from the store growing up.  Chunks of chicken paired with veggies in a creamy sauce is heavenly, but add a crisp, flaky crust and makes it even better! I used puff pastry to top these pies, but you could always use a regular pie crust if you prefer. This simple recipe will be a family pleaser for sure and much better than the frozen version from my childhood.

Individual Chicken Pot Pies
 
Ingredients
  • ½ cup butter, divided
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 cups carrots, sliced
  • 2 cups frozen southern style hash browns
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 2 cups cooked and shredded chicken (I used rotisserie chicken)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ cup flour
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • ¼ tsp poultry seasoning
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 sheet puff pastry, thawed
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray six 10 oz ramekins with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a skillet, melt 2 Tbsp of the butter. Mix in the onion and carrots. Cook over medium heat until onion is tender. Remove from heat and mix in hash browns, peas, and chicken; set aside.
  3. In a lage sauce pan, melt the remaining 6 Tbsp of butter. Add garlic and saute for 30 seconds. Whisk in flour and cook 1-2 minutes until mixture turns a light brown.
  4. Then whisk in the chicken broth to the flour mixture creating a sauce. Continue whisking and cooking the sauce until begins to thicken. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Add the sauce to the chicken/vegetable mixture and stir to combine. Divide mixture evenly between prepared ramekins.
  6. Cut puff pastry into 6 pieces and place a piece of puffed on top of each ramekin. Cut 2 vents in the top of each puff pastry.
  7. Place in the oven and bake at 375 degrees for 20-30 minutes until crust is golden brown. Let sit for 5 minutes before serving. Serves 6.
