Chicken Pot Pie with Puff Pastry
Chicken Pot Pie with Puff Pastry is a fantastic meal that our entire family loves. We prefer to make portion-sized chicken pot pies in individual ramekins for special occasions, which makes for a beautiful and scrumptious festive meal. However, for a cozy weekend or weeknight family dinner, we prefer making one decent-sized Chicken Pot Pie to share with everyone. The chicken sauce in this recipe is thick, creamy, and incredibly delicious. It’s packed with vegetables, mushrooms, and cream. Cover the sauce with puff pastry for a lovely, golden, crunchy layer of goodness. Enjoy!

Essential ingredients

This recipe will need vegetables, chicken, spices, and puff pastry.  Read more about the ingredients below.

Vegetables—This recipe uses colorful vegetables like onion, carrot, celery, leek, peas, and garlic. String beans cut into small cubes are optional.

Mushrooms - mushrooms are such a lovely addition to this sauce. Feel free to omit them in this recipe if you don't have them at home. 

Chicken—We used skinless and boneless chicken breasts. However, you can use chicken cutlets, tenders, or turkey breast cut into small cubes.

Spices - we seasoned the sauce with Vegeta Original, thyme, and pepper. If you can't find Vegeta in your country, use a combination of salt, dried parsley, and dried celery.

Flour—We add flour to thicken the sauce. Use the flour you have at home. We always have all-purpose flour at hand, so we use that.

Heavy cream - will make the sauce creamy and full of flavor.

Puff pastry - use a prerolled fresh puff pastry.

  • total time:
    hour 10 minutes


  • pan-fry the vegetables

    Add butter and olive oil to a pot and place over medium heat. Add diced onion, carrot, celery stalk, leek, garlic, and mushrooms. Stir and pan-fry for 6 - 8 minutes or until the vegetables are softened.

  • add the meat and season

    Cut the chicken breast into small cubes. Add to the vegetables and pan-fry for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the Vegeta, thyme, and pepper, stir, and cook for a minute. Add the flour and cook for 3 minutes for the flour to cook.

  • add the stock and peas

    Pour vegetable (or chicken) stock or water into the vegetables and meat. Add the heavy cream and frozen peas. Stir to combine, then let simmer for 10 minutes.

  • bake

    Place a rack on the bottom of the oven and preheat the fan-assisted oven to 200°C / 400°F or preheat the conventional oven to 210 °C / 410°F. Remove the puff pastry from the fridge and unroll it. Choose a deep baking dish approx. 25 cm x 15 cm (10-inch x 6-inch) or a 22 cm (9-inch) pie dish (with a volume of 1500ml (6 cups). Place the dish over the puff pastry and cut the puff pastry about 5 cm or 2 inches wider than the dish.

  • serve

    Transfer the chicken sauce to a baking dish. Place the puff pastry over the sauce and pinch the sides of the puff pastry and the baking dish together to cover the sauce completely. Brush the pastry with an egg wash. Cut circles or other patterns out of the leftover dough and arrange on top of the puff pastry to decorate. Brush with an egg wash and place in the preheated oven. Bake for 25 minutes at 200°C / 400°F in a fan-assisted oven or a conventional oven at 210 °C / 410°F, or until golden brown. When the pie bakes, remove it from the oven and leave to cool, then serve.
