Savory Chicken Pot Pie

Savory Chicken Pie recipe. It's like your mom's only wrapped in a buttery puff pastry crust ohsweetbasil.com

We are so excited to be sharing this savory chicken pot pie with you today!! The only thing that totally bums me out is that we had planned on adding peas which makes these pies so much better. I know, I could have taken new photos, but I had made a double batch, which was 12 whole pies so that I could freeze some so I really didn’t want to take new photos. I hope you all can forgive us.

I really just wanted something we are all familiar with, a good comfort food recipe that proves our point perfectly.

You see, chicken pot pies can be savory and wonderful, or kinda lame and gross. This recipe is easy, flavorful, and perfectly delicious. I ditched the entire pie plate and instead went for a puff pastry crust, and instead of goopy, runny sauce and weird chunks of barely identifiable chicken we make a hearty chicken and veggie filling.

A few things make this work. First, I start with rotisserie chicken because it has that juicy flavor and I know you want to resist but use both white and dark meat. I understand some of you may prefer the breast meat, but you’re only using a small amount and using both actually lends a lot more flavor.

Next, we reduce the liquid first so it can really increase the flavor and then add the roux to tighten the whole mess up. It’s still saucy enough that it’s not dry, but liquid wont goop or pour out of everything.

And let’s be honest, that buttery puff pastry is never a bad thing.

What Is Rotisserie Chicken?

Rotisserie chicken is whole chicken that has been cooked using direct heat in which the chicken is placed next to the heat source.

The chicken is usually suspended on a rack that turns in order to cook the meat evenly.

Can Chicken Pot Pie Filling Be Frozen?

Allow the filling to cool completely before freezing.

When cool, place in a freezer safe container and freeze.

Thaw and add to pastry before baking.

How Long Will Chicken Pot Pie Keep in the Refrigerator?

Freshly baked chicken pot pie will keep 3-5 days in the refrigerator.

Cover tightly with plastic or foil and refrigerate.
