Puff Pastry Chicken Potpie

Puff Pastry Chicken Potpie

What’s better than a chicken pot pie? A chicken pot pie topped with a flaky puff pastry!

 

Don’t you love it when you decide on what to make for dinner and you just so happen to have everything you need right in your very own kitchen?  It’s rare, but it happened to me when I had a craving for chicken pot pie.

I started rummaging through my fridge, pantry, and freezer, and was amazed to find that I could pull this together without even running to the store.  I found puff pastry leftover from my Peach Tarts, heavy cream from my Salted Caramel Oat Bars, and fresh thyme from my Slow Cooker Pot Roast.

Ingredients

 

  • 1 package (17.3 ounces) frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1 teaspoon pepper, divided
  • 4 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme or 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme

 

  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh sage or 1/4 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon half-and-half cream, divided
  • 2 cups frozen mixed vegetables (about 10 ounces)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 large egg yolk

 

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°. On a lightly floured surface, roll each pastry sheet into a 12×10-in. rectangle. Cut one sheet crosswise into six 2-in. strips; cut remaining sheet lengthwise into five 2-in. strips. On a baking sheet, closely weave strips to make a 12×10-in. lattice. Freeze while making filling.
  2. Toss chicken with 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon butter over medium-high heat; saute chicken until browned, 5-7 minutes. Remove from pan.
  3. In same skillet, heat remaining butter over medium-high heat; saute onion until tender, 5-7 minutes. Stir in garlic and herbs; cook 1 minute. Stir in flour until blended; cook and stir 1 minute. Gradually stir in broth and 1 cup cream. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; cook and stir until thickened, about 2 minutes.
  4. Stir in vegetables, lemon juice, chicken and the remaining salt and pepper; return to a boil. Transfer to a greased 2-1/2 qt. oblong baking dish. Top with lattice, trimming to fit.
  5. Whisk together egg yolk and remaining cream; brush over pastry. Bake, uncovered, until bubbly and golden brown, 45-55 minutes. Cover loosely with foil if it starts getting too dark. Let stand 15 minutes before serving.

Test Kitchen Tips

  • For a crisper crust, bake on a rimmed baking sheet. Trim lattice to fit baking dish, then place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake at 400&deg. for 20-25 minutes. Then place on top of your hot filling before serving.
  • Unless otherwise specified, Taste of Home recipes are tested with lightly salted butter. Unsalted, or sweet, butter is sometimes used to achieve a buttery flavor, such as in shortbread cookies or buttercream frosting. In these recipes, added salt would detract from the buttery taste desired.
  • To make a fresh garlic clove easy to peel, gently crush it with the flat side of a large knife blade to loosen the peel. If you don’t have a large knife, you can crush the garlic with a small can. The peel will come right off.

Fruit Filled Ice Pops – Dairy & Nut Free

Fruit Filled Ice Pops – Dairy & Nut Free

My 2 year old grandson,  Jett,  has a whole list of allergies.  He’s allergic to dairy, eggs, peanuts, peas, and the list goes on.  His allergies keep him from enjoying many treats and we feel bad when we’re having dessert, specially ice cream which he can’t have.  That’s why we are constantly looking for allergy free treats and snacks to make for him. When allergies are involved we find that homemade meals and snacks are the safest way to go, we know exactly what the ingredients are and how the food was prepared.

fruit filled ice popsOne of the snacks we like to make are these Fruit Filled Ice Pops.  They’re not only dairy and allergy free, they’re healthy, yummy, and pretty too!  They are so easy to make with fresh fruit and coconut water.

I used fresh strawberries and blackberries, but you can use pretty much any kind of fresh fruit you like.  These pops are best made in the rectangular molds, the fruits tend to get stuck in star shaped molds making it difficult to remove from the molds.

Mais con Yelo – Refreshing Filipino Snack

Mais con Yelo – Refreshing Filipino Snack

Maiz con Yelo

Mais con Yelo is a sweet and refreshing snack popular in the Philippine . The name is derived from Spanish and literally means “corn with ice”.

Mais con Yelo is made of sweet corn kernels, milk, sugar and shaved ice.  It is an easy Filipino merienda (snack) or dessert that is commonly by street vendors specially during the summer months.

Mais con Yelo is one of the best summer treats, a truly refreshing sweet milky cooler. It’s also very affordable and easy to prepare at home.  When we were kids our mothers and grandmothers always made this treat for us!  All you really need are 4 ingredients; corn, ice, sugar, and milk.  If you want to make it little fancier you can top it off with a scoop of ice cream; vanilla, sweet corn, and mango flavors are go well!  You can even sprinkle some crushed corn flakes on top to give it a bit of crunch!

If you’re looking for more merienda recipes check out our Merienda Series recipes including “Halo-Halo ” Filipino Iced Mixed Fruit DessertHalayang Ube (Purple Yam Jam)Banana Lumpia – TuronMerienda Series – Bibingka Galapong and Puto Cheese (Steamed Rice Cake with Cheese).

Strawberry Banana Smoothie Pops

Strawberry Banana Smoothie Pops

Strawberry Banana Smoothies are a family favorite. Turning them into frozen pops saves me from mixing them up as needed. I just haul out the blender once, whip up a bunch of pops, store them in the freezer ready for anyone who feels like a smoothie! This recipe is dairy free and has no added sugar, perfect for kids with allergies. You can add sugar to taste if you prefer them sweeter. I use Organic Rice Drink to make it creamy but soy or almond milk can be used instead. You can even use real cream if you don't have milk allergies. I use ripe bananas, it's a great way to use up all those over ripe bananas! You can make this with fresh or frozen strawberries. If using fresh remove the stems and cores, and wash them. If using frozen be sure to thaw them first, frozen berries turn the mixture into a thick icy mix that's hard to pour into molds.Strawberry Banana Smoothies are a family favorite.  Turning them into frozen pops saves me from mixing them up as needed.  I just haul out the blender once, whip up a bunch of pops, store them in the freezer ready for anyone who feels like a smoothie!

If you don’t have molds just pour them in freezer safe plastic cups, pop a stick in the center, and freeze.

To remove pops from molds run hot water on all sides of the mold, including the bottom.  They should slip right out.  I wrap each pop in clear plastic treat bags from Walmart and store them in the freezer in ziplock freezer bags.
