This recipe makes 6 - 8 servings.
Serve this meal with short pasta or mashed potato.
Firstly make the chicken filling for the pot pie. Look how healthy this is - full of fat free chicken meat and freshly cooked vegetables and just about no oil at all in this meal. Tip it all into a shallow oven proof bowl, such as a casserole dish.
Top with a sheet of pastry like a lid and decorate with bits of excess cut off pastry. Bake till golden brown just like this.
...and that's it for this recipe! That's how you make a delicious chicken pot pie.
This chicken pot pie looks sensational and tastes absolutely yummy!
Serve with short pasta or mashed potato.
Tips From Easy Recipes
If you consider a sheet of pastry contains too much fat for your daily dietary intake, substitute with a topping of mashed potato topped lightly with shredded cheese.
Here's how I cut the dough to fit the top. Upturn the empty casserole dish onto the dough and cut with a wide margin just like in the photo.
Take out one sheet of frozen rolled out dough an hour before you need to use it. Put the rest back into the freezer, or do a big bake to use up all the puff pastry sheets. You can't re-freeze thawed dough.
Use a shallow casserole or Pyrex dish so that the pie filling generously fills the casserole dish.
Allow the pie to cool for 10 minutes as it is very hot straight from the oven.
