A light and flaky puff pastry crust is what makes this pot pie the ultimate.  It's a great way to turn leftover chicken and veggies into a whole new and delicious dish.

Ingredients

  • 1 package (17.3 ounces) Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets, thawed
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 4 medium carrots, peeled and sliced (about 2 cups)
  • 3 medium onions, chopped (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 8 ounces mushrooms, sliced (about 3 cups)
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 1/4 cups Swanson® Chicken Broth OR Swanson® Chicken Stock
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon-style mustard
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves, crushed or 1 tablespoon minced fresh thyme leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 3 cups cubed cooked chicken
  • 1 cup frozen peas, thawed
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

How to Make It

  1. Heat the oven to 400°F.  Unfold the pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface.  Roll the pastry sheet into a 12-inch square.  Press the pastry into a 2-quart round casserole.  Trim the excess pastry.  Prick the pastry thoroughly with a fork.  Place aluminum foil onto the surface of the pastry.

  2. Bake for 25 minutes.  Remove the aluminum foil.

  3. Heat the butter in a 12-inch skillet over medium heat.  Add the carrots, onions and mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes or until the vegetables are tender-crisp, stirring occasionally.  Add the flour and cook and stir for 3 minutes or until the flour is golden brown.  Slowly stir in the broth and heat to a boil.  Cook and stir until the mixture boils and thickens.

  4. Stir in the mustard, thyme, black pepper, chicken, peas and 3 tablespoons parsley.  Remove the skillet from the heat.

  5. Unfold the remaining pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface.  Cut the pastry sheet crosswise into 6 (1 1/2-inch thick) strips.

  6. Spoon the chicken mixture into the casserole.  Weave a lattice pattern over the filling with the pastry strips.  Trim any excess pastry.  Sprinkle with the remaining parsley.  Place the casserole onto a baking sheet.

  7. Bake for 45 minutes or until the filling is hot and bubbling and the pastry is golden brown.
