Individual Chicken Pot Pies for Comfort Foods at #SundaySupper

Here we are with our next #SundaySupper. Comfort foods, yummy, my favorite. It conjures up images of cold nights and warm steaming dishes with rich flavors and smells that fill the home. It also makes you feel like you have gained 10 lbs. after eating one!! So that made me think of lightening up a chicken pot pie. I still want the wonderful crispy crust, that is the best part but I took away the bottom crust and lightened up the interior, although you would never know it. My family loved my little pot pies and I hope you do to. Full of flavor and much less calories. A perfect comfort food.

Recipe type: Entree
Serves: 4
 
A lightened up version of a classic comfort food!
Ingredients
  • 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 cup carrots, sliced
  • 2 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 2 stalks celery, sliced
  • ½ sweet medium onion, diced
  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 tsp. thyme
  • Salt and pepper
  • ⅓ cup flour
  • ⅔ cup skim milk
  • 1 package puff pastry
  • Small amount half and half cream for the pastry
  • Paprika
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425F. Chop chicken into bite sized pieces and remove any visible fat. Bring the chicken stock to a boil and place in chicken and carrots. Simmer for 15 min.
  2. Meanwhile in a large saucepan melt the butter and cook the celery and onion. Add the thyme, salt and pepper. Cook until the celery is soft and the onions are translucent. Stir in the flour and let cook for 1-2 min. Don't brown. Slowly add the milk and whisk well. When the chicken is done add the frozen peas and stir to defrost and reheat slightly. Add some of the broth to loosen up the flour mixture and then slowly incorporate the rest of the chicken, peas and carrots, stirring well not to get lumps. Simmer over low heat until thickened stirring occasionally. Adjust seasoning if necessary.
  3. Place the chicken mixture into four baking dishes or ramekins. Roll out puff pastry to ⅛" and cut out ovals or circles to fit just inside your baking dish. Place on top of your baking dishes and brush with a light coating of the half and half cream and sprinkle with paprika.
  4. Place dishes on a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 35-40 min. until the pastry is lightly browned and the filling is bubbling. Let cool for 5-10 min. before serving.

Those we Love Most by Lee WoodruffAre you ready for another amazing Sunday Supper event?    I am very excited about this week’s event.  We have a special guest and it’s all about comfort food.  Our guest is an amazing woman who has inspired me for a long time.   Lee Woodruff  is a wife, mother of four, author, CBS This Morning contributor and  founder of ReMIND.org.   I was so honored when she contacted me and expressed how much she loves our Sunday Supper Movement.  You have no idea how thrilled I am that she is a guest this week during #SundaySupper.

Lee Woodruff’s latest book,  Those We Love Most,  is about family, love, tragedy, coming together and healing.  In short, it holds a reflection of all of our lives.  So this week’s Sunday Supper theme was born….

    I love that you lightened up a chicken pot pie! It is definitely another one of those comfort food dishes that I don’t make fr myself often because it is heavy…I like your version!!!

  2. Megan says

    I love the lightened up version of your pot pie. This is one of my favorite comfort foods and my boyfriend hates pot pies!!! I am going to make this for myself one day. All for me!!!

  3. Kim Bee says

    Tara I love this recipe. Pot pies just signify comfort food. And doing individual ones is just an added bonus. Love the crust. You do good work lady!

  4. Liz says

    My hubby loves chicken pot pie and this recipe looks perfect! I love the topping of puff pastry…yum, yum!!! Perfect comfort food, Tara!

  5. Sarah says

    I love how you used puff pastries for this. I’m not a huge fan of thick doughy pie crust. Makes it so much lighter and I love the individual portions. Great job Tara!
