Chicken Pot Pie with Puff Pastry

If you like this recipe, please share!

My family loves chicken pot pie so when this Pi Day event popped up I took the opportunity to go the savory route rather than the sweet route. I’m in sweet overload. In one of my previous posts I shared individual chicken pot pies. This one is made in a 2-quart casserole dish.

When I think of chicken pot pie I think of a hearty warm meal for cool nights. Pure and unadulterated comfort food. This has all the classic ingredients you’d find in a chicken pot pie. Peas, carrots, onions and chicken, of course. I have a new garden so I included some fresh thyme. I will be the first to say there are some pretty good frozen chicken pot pies on the market but nothing beats making one from scratch. Some versions use pie crust others a biscuit topping but I LOVE puff pastry.

Interestingly my Mom, who was a wonderful cook, never made chicken pot pie. I remember the first time I made it for her. She fell in love and asked me to make it often once she slowed down on her cooking. It was great because she could warm up leftovers and get a couple of meals out of the dish.

Chicken pot pie is a great meal to get family and friends around the table any time of the year. Be sure to visit the Pi{e} Day posts of my blogger friends at the links below. Thank you to Coleen from The Redhead Baker for not only suggesting this event but hosting it too!
